Newcomers to League of Legends creator Riot Games are being offered up to $25,000 to quit their jobs.
A new company scheme called Queue Dodge means that any new employee who has been at the studio for less than 60 days can now walk away from their jobs with no questions asked and with a cheque for ten per cent of their annual salary in the process.
The payout is called at $25,000 and is, for the time being at least, restricted to its North American employees.
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,” Riot said. We operate on a foundation of shared mission, values, passion, trust, and mutual respect.
If someone gags on the unique flavor of our culture, they'd be doing themselves and the company a disservice to hang on just for the paycheck. We've designed Queue Dodge to help self-identified mismatches move on in an open, positive, and constructive way.
We don't know yet how many people might choose to Queue Dodge, but we'll learn from this and make better hiring decisions as a result.”
