There's an effort afoot to eliminate non-compete clauses because they are unfair and because they limit competition instead of preserve the domain of competition.
The other thing that companies can do to help their employees become more productive is to actually lower the firewalls around social networking and other online sites. There is actually tons of information out there that a productive, progressive and innovative employee can use. For some reason, many companies try to enforce this mentality that all work happens within the walls of the organization and that anything outside of those walls is a distraction.
I don't agree with this mentality, because it assumes that points of contact outside of a company don't accentuate the company's mission.
In a web 2.0 world, your business is not just here, it's also over there.
We should be communicating in more ways and more often with others.
