Nasscom advises HRs to stop poaching
The Nasscom committee on 'Ethics and Corporate Governance' discussed this situation and was chaired by Infosys Chairman NR Narayana Murthy. "We at Nasscom are asking our members not to resort to poaching. They should ask for an employer relieving letter as a mandatory HR best practice. IT-ITeS employees should also serve their entire notice periods," Mittal added. Often IT companies don't even ask for previous work experience documents in a bid to meet their short-term project requirements. They hire employees in hundreds from other companies by giving them attractive salaries.
Nasscom also advised companies to follow a whistleblower policy and appoint an ombudsman for addressing the ethics concerns. "The scope of whistle blowing should extend to external relations (i.e. customers, partners, competitors, vendors, other external agencies, statutory/others and society at large) as well," it said.
Nasscom's Ethics and Corporate Governance committee formed after the Satyam debacle has members like Genpact President and CEO Pramod Bhasin, Mastek board member Ashank Desai, Zensar CEO Ganesh Natarajan, ex CVC Chairman N Vittal and S Ramadorai, Vice-Chairman at TCS.
