The ongoing talent war between the major tech companies gets a ton of attention, with the media particularly lapping up stories about Google’s eye-popping ‘please don’t go to Facebook’ cash bonuses for their software engineers.
These attempts by the dominant tech firms to poach employees from each other are nothing new, with Microsoft sued back in 1997 for trying to lure across staff from Borland. Google was sued by Microsoft for the same thing eight years later, and now everybody seems to be worried about Facebook.
But who is dominating the talent war? Who is losing the least amount of people whilst hiring the most? According to new data released by social recruiting site TopProspect, the winner is Twitter, which (incredibly) has hired almost 11 new people for every one person who leaves the company.
