Listener Miles Green asked us “What do you do when key employees leave the company
and set up on their own in competition? How can you prevent it and how do you mitigate
Sometimes even the best treated and most indulged employees betray us. Perhaps motivated
out of greed and a misguided sense of their ‘rights’, they leave and try to compete.
Often this comes as a shock, and they soon realise running a business is not the
piece of cake they imagined.
But, this can be little consolation. It is far better the problem never arises and
if it does, to have some mitigation strategies in place. Regular Mind Your Own Business
Podcast contributors Guy Kingston and John Richards discuss some preventative measures
along with some thoughts on what to do if you are a victim of this ungrateful treachery.
Also, we follow up on our previous show’s discussion on the pitfalls of various
content management systems such as Joomla, with input from listeners Mark Lawrence,
Rob Campbell and Neil Gibson.
