How New HR Technologies Will Change The Way We Hire

A quick story.

I knew a woman who worked at a finance company. While working at the company, she went to school at night and eventually earned her MBA. After she graduated and earned her degree, she walked into her boss’s office and asked for a raise based on her new degree.

Paying an employee to quit. Does it make any sense at all? Big time, and not just because Amazon says so.

Amazon offers employees at their fulfillment centers after their first year of work $2,000 if they wish to quit. That payoff climbs by $1,000 each year until it caps out at $5,000. Of course, the headline of the money-to-quit contract offered to employees is “Please Don’t Take…
