+ 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: What would be your top reason for considering a job change?

  • Salary Increase - 48%
  • Remote/Hybrid Options - 24%
  • Culture/Benefits - 28%

Here’s the reality – when you leave things to chance, i.e. not paying your people their value, they will entertain other options – even if they like you. You need to be in the ballpark of what the market holds for similar responsibilities. Work environment, culture, benefits, and leadership are all important elements that can offset money IF you’re paying competitively – keyword being competitive. Reduce the risk of employee departure by surveying the market at regular intervals to ensure your compensation and total rewards are where they need to be – not necessarily where you think they should be. Want to discuss this further?
