Online theft damaging reputation of recruitment industry

Online theft damaging reputation of recruitment industry
 
Technical and engineering recruitment firm NES Group is warning fellow recruiters about the surge in online content theft after its website was targeted.
 
So called copy and paste companies use information from other websites when creating their own web pages without seeking permission.  Statistics reveal one in ten businesses have had at least one item of their website plagiarised by another company.*
 
Matt Cody, marketing director at NES, said: Plagiarism is a growing problem on the web and were cracking down on it.  Since we started monitoring this, weve been shocked to find that recruitment agencies from across the world, from Singapore to the Midlands have copied content from our career management library.
 
We invest a lot of time and energy, researching, writing and promoting our web content and feel strongly about protecting it from businesses out to steal.  Search engines penalise duplicate web content meaning our copy is devalued.  Id advise all recruitment organisations to make regular checks to ensure they protect their content and in turn, their reputation.
 The NES Group is a global technical, engineering, rail and IT engineering services and recruitment specialist.  Established in 1978, it has offices spanning the Americas, Asia, the Middle East and Europe and has more than 3,500 employees
