    Riot Games, maker of the popular video game League of Legends, welcomes new Rioters not with paperwork, but with “Denewbification”: an intensive immersion that starts with–what else?–a session of gaming. If new hires decide Riot’s not a fit before the end of their first 60 days, they will be offered up to 10% of their annual salary (up to $25,000) as an incentive to quit. As part of an open paid-time-off policy, the company places no limit on vacation or sick days spent outside of the office. It’s up to Rioters to design what kind of schedule works for them, and to stay home when they’re not feeling well. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
