+ 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 is your preferred method of workplace-related communication?

  • Face to face - 36%
  • Email - 44%
  • Text – 10%
  • Phone - 10% 

It’s clear there is no “one size fits all” for communication. What is important is to recognize and implement a multi-channel communication approach, adapting to different needs and situations. Companies should regularly solicit feedback on communication methods and train managers in effective communication across various channels. Understanding and adapting to employees' communication preferences can lead to more effective, engaging, and efficient workplace interactions, fostering a better-informed and more responsive workforce. Can we help you? Call us today to brainstorm on best practices to engage and retain your workforce!
