The talk is tonight at 7.
Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2016:
What happens when businesses pay their employees to quit?
That’s the question one Ohio University economist will address tonight in a talk at The Athena Cinema. Glenn Dutcher, an assistant professor of economics at OU, will host a TedX conversation called “Paid to Quit” tonight at 7 p.m.
The uncommon tactic is most notably used by Amazon, which offers some employees up to $5,000 to quit their jobs.
The presentation is free, but space is limited. You’ll have to register online to see the talk.
