+ 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: When you start a new job, what's most impactful for your success?

  • Good training/onboarding - 56%
  • Developing relationships at co. - 23%
  • Understanding your duties - 21% 

Roughly 90% of employees decide to stay or leave within the first 6 months on the job. The biggest factor is how well they were welcomed into the company. This includes training, learning processes and culture, as well as connecting with others. Taking the extra time to onboard people the right way means the investment you made in recruiting them won't go to waste. Need help with what candidates are looking for? The experts at Alaant are here to help.
