Riot Games offers new hires 'cash to quit'

League of Legends developer Riot Games has announced a new company initiative called Queue Dodge, which allows new North America hires to receive 10 percent of their annual salary if they leave the company within 60 days. "Basically, we're offering new hires cash to quit," the company stated.

Riot notes that this doesn't mean they want to actively push employees out or "dare them to leave," but that instead, the move is aimed at helping new hires who feel the company isn't the right fit for them find a "well-lit, safe exit path." Judging by the picture Riot chose to headline their announcement, it is also an exit path filled with memes and shiba inu dogs.

Additionally, Riot hopes to strengthen company culture. "We operate on a foundation of shared mission, values, passion, trust, and mutual respect," Riot stated in the news post revealing Queue Dodge. "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."
