No Strings Attached: This Company Pays Its Employees $25,000 To Quit

These people take “caring about your people” to a whole new level. The geniuses behind the hugely popular PC game “League of Legends”, Riot Games, actually, in all seriousness, pay unhappy employees a total of  $25,000 to pack up their stuff and leave – even if they got hired yesterday. Apparently Riot Games is doing this because they simply don’t want to keep individuals who are struggling to keep up or that just aren’t a “good fit” for the company’s unique culture.

In a blog post the company announced the program  saying that “Rather than allow mismatches to fester, we want to resolve them quickly. This is good for the company, and good for the professional. … we’ll learn from this and make better hiring decisions as a result,” But here is what I don’t get. Instead of paying “misplaced” employees a fortune to quit, why not hire the right people to do the job and thereby avoid hiring the wrong people – would save them so much money.

But then again, it’s a mind-blowing gesture that a few companies would ever think of pulling off. Essentially though, this generous ” bye-bye-payment” puts an end and solves that long escrutiating proccess when managers suspect that the “nooby” won’t cut it, but feel like it’s a little too soon to pull the trigger and fire him. But on the other hand, it’s still $25,000! I mean for their unhappy employees, this really must be a dream – getting paid a fortune to quit your job, think I’ll be looking to give up writing and find myself doing what ever it is you do at Riot Games.

Then I found out that it wasn’t that simple – there are a couple of minor qualification. As of now, this “offer” is only available to North Americans and they have to elect to take the special package within the first 60 days of employment. But this isn’t surprising at all as the hiring crunch in the tech-world right now is huge! Qualified programmer and IT developers can without a doubt start in the six-figure range.

Riot Games, who has a staff that’s over 800 individuals, stated that “we don’t want to actively push people out or dare them to leave, but we do want to provide a well-lit, safe exit path,” But there are other huge companies that have the same “business strategy.”Amazon for example pays its employees $5,000 to quit for the exact same reason: They don’t need people who are slacking or dragging down the business working for them, simply because, at the end of the month, they need a paycheck.
