I read this, and I had a ridiculous number of "Aha!" moments. A few for me:

-Context vs. control: In any place where your expecting creative contribution, it makes literally zero sense to define the contribution by the input. You hire people for their output, not their input.

-Vacation tracking: If you're not tracking how many hours the employees do work, you're already not tracking how many they don't work -- by definition.

-Generous severance: This way your managers don't feel bad firing people that aren't a good fit.
