Amazon offers workers $5,000 to quit
(less than 50%)


Pay to Quit is pretty simple," he said. "Once a year, we offer to pay our associates to quit. The first year the offer is made, it's for $2,000. Then it goes up $1,000 a year until it reaches $5,000."

Bezos noted that "The headline on the offer is 'Please Don't Take This Offer,'" adding: "We hope they don't take the offer; we want them to stay."

But why make such an offer at all?

"The goal is to encourage folks to take a moment and think about what they really want," Bezos said in the letter. "In the long-run, an employee staying somewhere they don't want to be isn't healthy for the employee or the company."

that's an interesting policy. and it's probably cheaper than paying out unemployment.
