    Be a better place to work?

    A trite answer, perhaps, but if your ex-employee is luring your current employees away with offers of more money, better conditions, improved opportunities and/or more competent management, you should probably start by finding out why your employees are so keen to leave and what this other employer is offering that you aren't.

  • Unles you have a non-solicitation clause in your contracts then nothing you can do (apart from taking Robey's advice and try to understand why people are so easy to tempt away).
  • Hi, 

     

    Thanks for your advice the other employer isnt poaching our staff its our service users that we provide care for.

     

    but i think the same applies

     

    thanks for all your advice  

  • Is there any reason why the service users shouldn't / wouldn't be free to choose the provider of the service they use?

    Not sure this is an HR issue, then, really, except as far as your customers' choices are being led by your own performance and quality.
