Gatekeepers, Telephones & Targets

I recruit niche, in demand technical skills across the UK and Europe, technical skills companies are continually looking to hire, as well as wanting to retain.

It is becoming more evident that companies do not want their prize technical assets taken away from them by “head hunters” and are implementing a variety of methods to ensure their technical staffs are not being poached.

Here are some of the ploys companies are using to make sure their staffs are not approached:

  • No name polices
  • Software/Technical/Engineering teams do not take telephone calls
  • Software/Technical/Engineering teams messages and emails can only be made through a Gatekeeper

It is becoming increasingly difficult to discover and make contact with technical talent so I am interested in hearing about out-of-the-box ways to overcome these hurdles as well as any other methods companies are employing to stop their prize assets from being poached.
