Tesla has reportedly hired away nearly 150 employees from Apple

According to a Bloomberg report, electric-vehicle (EV) manufacturer Tesla has reportedly been poaching employees from electronics giant Apple; with nearly 150 employees having reportedly left Apple to join Tesla.

The Bloomberg figures related to ex-Apple employees joining Tesla mark the highest number of employees that Tesla has poached from any other single company thus far. The former Apple employees who have been hired by Tesla include engineers, legal counsels and human resources staffers, among others.

With Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk luring employees by drawing a parallel between the EV maker and Apple, asserting that the two companies share "closely aligned" design philosophies, the employees who have been hired away by Tesla from Apple have been enticed with the promise of a bright future.

Tesla has reportedly been offering massive signing bonuses to the employees poached from Apple, and has also been apparently alluring them with the belief that Tesla is here to stay, for a very, very long time.

In hiring former Apple employees, Tesla has clearly taken advantage of Apple's new-found policy on poaching. Apple - along with Adobe, Google, Intel, Intuit, and Pixar - has recently worked out a $415 million settlement in a class-action anti-poaching lawsuit which was filed in 2009. The lawsuit accused the mentioned Silicon Valley giants of striking secret deals, agreeing not to try to hire away employees from one another.
