Zappos pays to weed out uncommitted workers

Chicago Tribune, June 20, 2008
Internet shoe retailer Zappos has a policy to filter out uncommitted workers before they even start. One week into training, employees are offered $1,500 to quit-an offer that Zappos execs say shows how committed new employees really are. Between 2% and 3% take the money and leave the company, according to Zappos executives.
