Unknown    Have you heard of the Amazon ‘Pay to Quit Program’? essentially Amazon offers their employees up to £5000 to quit their job!!

The offer is headlined, “Please don’t take this offer’! 

Amazon quotes “We hope they don’t take the offer, we want them to stay. “Why do we make this offer? the goal is to encourage folks to take a moment and think about what they really want. In the long run, an employee staying somewhere they don’t want to be isn’t healthy for the employee or the company.”

What do you think to this type of management? If you don’t want the job, you are hurting yourself by staying…and hurting your company by not being fully committed.

If you are one of those people who would take the money and quit, you need to work out why? Is it because you have received a raise or a promotion? Is it because you are waiting for someone to hand you a better opportunity? 

If you are seeking to move up in your company, you need to sow that specific commitment. You reap what you sow. What you put into your job, you will harvest. If you are sowing commitment, integrity and relationship skills, you will reap promotions, bonuses and job satisfaction.

Finding your dream job isn’t easy with today’s job market, but if you are not fully committed, you are hurting your dreams and hurting your employer’s company. Working is a privilege not a guarantee or basic human right. If you want to succeed in your career you have to sow into your career success.

Sit down and think about your career path. Imagine if your boss offered you £5000 to leave what would you do?

  • Would you understand that you could make that £5000 back ten fold if you sowed what you wanted to reap?
  • Or would you leave because you have no commitment?
