THE TALK... | Management

With the labor market as competitive as we’ve seen since the bubble, we’re hearing more and more chatter about the practice of poaching to fill all kinds of positions, from the executive-level and sales ranks to the factory floor workers and in-the-field installers. There are varying opinions on the effectiveness and even on the integrity of using recruiters or “poaching” employees. Stories also vary greatly for companies that have recruited employees or had employees recruited from them, but there is one constant among the stories: employed candidate recruitment is a reality for most. See the results of this month's poll and read more about this hard reality in the October/November issue of Window & Door.
