Amazon is Offering To Give Employees $5,000 If They Voluntarily Quit

Amazon is currently in the middle of cutting several hundreds of jobs in order to fix the problem of overstaffing which occurred in Amazon’s latest growth stage. 

Earlier this week, Business Insider reported that Amazon is currently in the middle of cutting several hundreds of jobs in order to fix the problem of overstaffing which occurred in Amazon’s latest growth stage.

According to Business Insider via The Atlantic, the e-commerce giant is now proposing “The Offer” to many of Amazon’s warehouse and customer sales staff which will give employees $5,000 USD if they decide to leave the organization voluntarily.

Industry insiders point out that this could end up being a brilliant strategy for Amazon, as it will encourage un-engaged employees to take leave while those that want to stay will stick it out.
