+ About the Alaant Advisor
The Alaant Advisor is our column focused on all things going on in the world of recruiting, job placement, and search. Think of it as your weekly briefing—a handy, quick guide to what's going on.

Here's what's happening this week:

Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:

Q: Team Dog or Team Cat?

  • Dog - 55%
  • Cat - 19%
  • Both - 17%
  • Neither - 9%

Most people are one side or the other, but does that mean you only have friends on one side? Of course not! Our workplace teams have a lot of similarities to this analogy. We all have different ways of processing or doing things, but we still find ways to create strong culture, collaborate on projects, and demonstrate inclusivity. This can attract a wider audience of candidates who have new and varied opinions, and differences which make them great contributors. For more on building a diverse and inclusive work team, reach out to your friends at Alaant today!
