Would You Quit Your Job for an Offer Like This?

One company that's already rewritten many of the rules within the retail industry is making an interesting new move that could change how companies run their HR departments.  (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) CEO Jeff Bezos is reportedly offering employees at the company's fulfillment centers a hefty sum of money to... quit.

No, the company isn't in a financial crunch, nor does it have a pension problem on the horizon that it's trying to fix. Instead, Motley Fool contributor Brian Stoffel says Amazon is simply following suit from its previous innovative ideas of the past.

Brian thinks that by offering employees this once-a-year opportunity, Amazon, its customers, and its shareholders stand to benefit from a lot of cultural variables working in the company's favor. To find out what this deal is, take a look at the video below.
