Nando's HR directors slams staff poachers

Nando's HR directors slams staff poachers

The HR director of chicken restaurant chain Nando's has slammed companies that attempt to poach staff from rivals.

Speaking at the annual Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) conference in Harrogate, Julia Claydon said that competitors who try to steal staff from other companies "lose integrity".

She outlined one example where a rival sent a fax to all 190 Nando's offices hoping to attract staff to their organisation.

Nando's would never use such aggressive tactics as it went against their company values of remaining integral, Claydon said.

"If you've got good engagement of your employees and they are engaged with the company, [poaching] is more of an insult [to employees] than a worry," she told Caterersearch sister website PersonnelToday.com. "People that do that [poach], devalue the integrity of organisations."
