I’ve always bristled at companies that get overly defensive about “poaching.” More often than not, I’ve found it comes off as a lack of confidence in the working environment they’re designing. People are adults and can (and should!!) make these kinds of decisions for themselves. The burden is on you, the employer, to create an environment people want to work in.
