Part Three of Three
The principals, laws and ethics behind contingency recruiting firm “non-solicitation” policies with their clients
In Part One we discussed one of the greatest source of conflict between company hiring managers and search firms: Internal candidate poaching or what is better referred to as “employee solicitation”.
In Part Two we addressed some of the more frequently asked questions company hiring managers have raised (both to us at IRES, Inc. as well as search firms using the services of www.searchwizardy.com who have made such issues aware to us).
Now we provide Tips for helping address the issues.
Tips For Company Hiring Managers
Bottom Line: When you want extended service from your appliance chain store or from your new car dealer you generally have to pay for it. If you expect and desire an extended “warranty” in the form of a non-compete that goes beyond the standard industry guideline of one year – you must also be prepared to negotiate accordingly.
