Amazon – Unhappy workers: Take $5,000 and go

Quitters wanted: Unhappy with your job? Feeling unproductive? Take $5,000 and go. Capture d’écran 2014-04-13 à 10.25.32

At least, that’s what Amazon.com Inc. is offering its warehouse employees.

In a letter to shareholders this week, Chief Executive Jeffrey Bezos outlined the details of a rare human resources strategy the online retail giant has launched.

Dubbed Pay to Quit, the program is offered once a year to employees who work in Amazon fulfillment centers. In the first year, the offer is $2,000. After that, it rises $1,000 every year until it reaches $5,000. The aim is to weed out employees who are unsatisfied with their job and looking for a golden parachute.

“The goal is to encourage folks to take a moment and think about what they really want. In the long run, an employee staying somewhere they don’t want to be isn’t healthy for the employee or the company,” Bezos explained.
