They either produce or they don't. If they don't fire them.

My country has laws that make this quite hard to do for companies with more than 15 employees. Here it's justifiable trying to keep a tight check on some employees. But why do I have to suffer and be less productive and getting less money for a percentage of leeches? Punish them, not me.

Be results oriented.

That should be the spirit, how many companies don't even know what the **** they are doing in the first place? They don't have an idea of which results they want so they need to keep everyone in the same place and blindly herd them somewhere, fast!
