Netflix have a semi-official 20-25% turnover policy.
People are fired for not making ever increasing performance goals - this was fine, everybody knows it and factors it into the salary they want.

And then they introduced an unlimited vacation policy, and were widely celebrated in the general press for their enlightened workplace.
It will be interesting the effect this has if new people go to work there because of the policy and discover that anybody who takes a weekend off is fired.
