Ok, so first off sorry for the hiatus, things have been a little crazy for the exhibitslist team.
However we are back and ready to roll!
So my blog entry today is dealing with competitive agreements that are signed by employers and employees.
Are these a good thing? Do they really work?
I mean, ok I get the fact that the company is trying to protect themselves as they want to keep their clients but I know way too many stories of sales reps leaving the company and taking their client with them. I mean it might not be the next day or anything but it always happens.
So what do you do? Do you sue them over this? You can, and in my opinion you should, but you really have to think of the money it's going to cost you and in the end the client isn't going to come back to you, especially after you've dragged their sales "guy" (or girl) through the legal system. So basically its a lose lose scenerio.
So here is the real question we have to ask: What type of ethics do people have these days? I mean can't anyone play by the book so to speak and win clients honestly? If it's not them breaking their NCA then it's money getting thrown under the table, slamming your company name, or something like that.
I don't know maybe I've just been involved or around a lot of bad people.
How is it in your world? Do you deal with the same problems? How do you deal with it?
Would love to hear from you!
