Alaant Workforce Solutions Selected by Forbes as One of America’s Best Recruiting Firms



Alaant Workforce Solutions, the leading professional workforce services firm in New York’s Capital Region, today announced it has been named by Forbes as one of America's Best Recruiting Firms 2020 – the fourth consecutive year Alaant has received this prestigious recognition.

Again this year, Alaant is the only recruiting firm in the Capital Region to be selected to the list of America's Best Professional Search Firms, which is based on reviews from thousands of external recruiters, HR and hiring managers, and candidates nationwide.

“We are honored and humbled to be chosen once again by Forbes as one of the best professional recruiting firms in the country,” said Miriam Dushane, Managing Partner of Alaant Workforce Solutions. “This recognition reflects the deep expertise, passion, and commitment to excellence of our outstanding team. It also speaks volumes about the extraordinary service and results we deliver to the clients and candidates who put their trust and confidence in Alaant.”

Forbes partnered with analytics leader Statista to compile its ranking of America’s Best Recruiting Firms, which was based on separate surveys with three target groups: recruiters, HR and hiring managers, and candidates. Of 32,000 invitations sent between December 19, 2019 and January 27, 2020, surveys were completed by 18,000 respondents. Only the firms with the highest recommendations – 250 companies out of more than 4,000 nationwide – were named to the exclusive list.

In February, the company was honored by ClearlyRated with the Best of Staffing® Client Award and Best of Staffing® Talent Award, the fourth consecutive year it has been selected. In addition, Alaant was named last fall by industry publication HR Tech Outlook as one of the nation’s Top 10 Employer Branding Consulting/Services Companies for 2019.

Offering a full range of workforce solutions to employers, from Talent Acquisition Partnerships to Employer Brand Strategy, Alaant has helped more than 400 Capital Region companies attract, acquire, engage and retain over 4,000 elite employees over the past decade.
