A New York-based lingerie retailer has employed some unconventional strategies in its effort to build a positive workplace culture.

Imagine quitting a job and receiving a $10,000 resigning bonus as a parting gift from your former employer.

Being paid to quit your job sounds too good (and too crazy) to be true, right? Not if you work at Adore Me, a New York-based online lingerie retailer.

The lingerie startup, which was founded in 2011, is employing some unusual tactics, like a $10,000 check for departing employees, in an effort to create a positive workplace culture, according to Bloomberg.

Adore Me reportedly has given out two $10,000 checks to workers who have resigned, but the benefit is not guaranteed for all employees who quit.

“We would do it for anyone that has put in a lot of hard work and effort at Adore Me,” CEO Morgan Hermand-Waiche told Bloomberg. He said the generous parting gift actually serves as an incentive for workers to stay with the company, because Adore Me treats its employees so well.

As Bloomberg explains: “The type of organization that gives loyal, hard-working employees a pile of money is, in theory, a desirable place to work.”

Adore Me offers other worker perks, including Monday morning breakfast, in-office yoga and free taxi rides home for employees who stay late at the office.

“[The $10,000 check is] just a way to say thank you,” Hermand-Waiche said. “Maybe one day they will come back, maybe they will tell their friends about it and it will get us some great leads.”

Although HR professionals are wary of employers giving out fat checks to workers who quit, it’s too early to see how Adore Me’s unconventional resigning bonus will impact the company when it comes to retaining current employees, attracting new talent or rehiring former employees.

Other companies are also testing innovative pay perks in their quest to attract and maintain talent, Fortune reports.

Earlier this year, e-commerce company Boxed created a nonprofit to cover the college tuition of its employees’ children, while clothing crowdfunding startup Betabrand has used rewards from its corporate credit cards to pay for employees’ personal travel.
