Miriam Dushane is Managing Partner of Alaant Workforce Solutions, which is nationally recognized as a leader in helping employers attract, acquire, engage and retain premier talent.

Alaant, based in Albany, New York, evolved from Linium Recruiting, which Ms. Dushane has developed into a leading firm. It has consistently received prestigious recognition, including the ClearlyRated Best of Staffing® Client Diamond Award for Excellence in Client Service for eight consecutive years (2017-24) — a distinction earned by less than 2% of staffing agencies in North America — and the Best of Staffing® Talent Diamond Award for six years (2019-24). In 2019, HR Tech Outlook named Alaant one of the nation’s Top 10 Employer Branding Consulting/Services Companies. Additionally, NYS-SHRM selected the firm in 2020 as one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York, following recognition by the Albany Business Review as one of the Capital Region’s Best Places to Work.

In 2018, Ms. Dushane rebranded the business as Alaant, broadening its expertise and resources to expand into two innovative practice areas – Employer Brand Strategy and Talent Acquisition Partnerships – that enable employers to build motivated, high-performing workforces for long-term success. Ms. Dushane is responsible for oversight of all operations, including recruitment efforts, business development, complete P&L, and employee management, and under her leadership, Alaant has placed more than 4,000 top professionals with over 400 companies.

A SHRM Certified Professional and PHR with more than 25 years of human resources experience,  Ms. Dushane specializes in recruitment, employee relations, and training and development. She is guided by two central tenets: always do the right thing over turning a profit, and lead by example.

Ms. Dushane is an active community advocate and leader. She currently holds the position of Vice President on the Board of the New York State Staffing Association and serves as President of the Tech Valley High School Foundation Board. Previously, she chaired CanCode Communities for seven years, a nonprofit focused on providing coding education and training to help underemployed and underrepresented individuals advance. In 2023, Ms. Dushane was appointed Chair of the American Staffing Association’s Engineering, IT, and Scientific Section Council, representing the $161 billion U.S. staffing and recruiting industry. Recognized as a significant influencer in her region, she was named to the Albany Business Review’s “Power 50” list in 2022. She has also been honored as one of Albany Business Review’s Women Who Mean Business (2017) and received the Capital Region Chamber's Woman of Excellence award in Management (2015).
