While in the United States and Europe to sign a general agreement among firms not to snatch your best employees is something considered illegal anticompetitive, this is not so in Russia, where large technology have publicly admitted that country who have a verbal agreement Non recruit other employees, especially software developers.

With this measure, the Russian companies Acronis, Epam, Kaspersky Labs, Parallels and Yandex seek to avoid climbing in a ‘wage war’ to capture employees of rival firms, as is the case in the U.S., where Google and Facebook years have been spending millions of dollars to retain their employees and do not leave the competition .

That if Russian companies clarify that this agreement ‘ gentleman ‘is just for them, as all employees are free to seek a job in the competition without problems. In fact, I had a similar agreement between two of these companies, Acronis and Parallels, where recruiters should first ask permission to the Department of and the supervisor of the rival candidate.
