Alaant Workforce Solutions Managing Partner Miriam Dushane Named to New York Staffing Association Board of Directors



Alaant Workforce Solutions, the leading professional workforce services firm in New York’s Capital Region, today announced that Managing Partner Miriam Dushane has been named to the board of directors of the New York Staffing Association (NYSA).

One of the largest affiliated chapters of the American Staffing Association, NYSA is the trade association that promotes the interests of the staffing industry through legal and legislative advocacy, public relations, education, networking and collaboration, and the advancement of high standards of ethical conduct. 

In her role as Regional Director representing the Capital Region, Ms. Dushane will provide critical insight and perspective to address the particular recruiting needs of the region, as well as the general issues and interests of staffing agencies across New York state.

“I am honored to be chosen for this prestigious role as a director of the New York Staffing Association, and welcome the chance to serve as a valuable resource and voice for the Capital Region and the staffing industry,” said Dushane. “As the workplace undergoes a dynamic transformation, including in how employers attract, hire and retain great employees, this is both an important responsibility and an exciting opportunity.”

A SHRM Certified Professional and PHR with more than 20 years of human resources experience, Ms. Dushane launched Linium Recruiting in 2006 and built it into a regional powerhouse. In 2018, she rebranded the business as Alaant, broadening its expertise and resources to expand into two innovative practice areas – Talent Acquisition Partnerships and Employer Brand Strategy – that enable employers to build motivated, high-performing workforces for long-term success.

Under her leadership, Alaant has gained numerous recognitions for excellence. For each of the past four consecutive years (2017-20), Alaant has been honored by Forbes as one of America's Best Recruiting Firms. In addition, Alaant has received the Best of Staffing® Client Diamond Award and Best of Staffing® Talent Award – given to the top 2% of staffing firms in North America – from ClearlyRated for the past 5 and 3 years, respectively. Alaant was also selected by HR Tech Outlook as one of the nation’s Top 10 Employer Branding Consulting/Services Companies for 2019, and was chosen in 2020 by NYS-SHRM as one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York.
