For the Fifth Consecutive Year, Alaant Workforce Solutions is Named by Forbes as One of America’s Best Recruiting Firms

Recognized as a national leader in both professional and executive recruiting, Alaant stands alone as the only firm in New York’s Capital Region to receive prestigious honor

Albany, NYAlaant Workforce Solutions, the leading professional workforce services firm in New York’s Capital Region, today announced it has been selected by Forbes for the fifth consecutive year as one of America’s Best Recruiting Firms.

Again this year, Alaant is the only Capital Region firm to receive this prestigious recognition, cited in each of two categories for 2021: as one of America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms and among America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms. The rankings are based on more than 26,000 reviews provided by recruiters, HR and hiring managers, and job candidates that worked with recruitment agencies over the past year.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by Forbes once again as one of the nation’s elite recruiting firms. This prestigious honor reflects the extraordinary expertise, passion, commitment and integrity of our talented team, which rose above the challenges brought by the pandemic and continued to excel,” said Miriam Dushane, Managing Partner of Alaant Workforce Solutions. “We’re especially proud to receive this recognition for the fifth consecutive year, which demonstrates our dedication to building enduring relationships with the clients and candidates we’re privileged to serve, and our ability to deliver results that enable business and professional success.”

To determine its rankings of America’s Best Recruiting Firms, Forbes partnered with Statista to survey 31,000 recruiters and 7,200 job candidates and HR managers who worked with recruitment agencies. Respondents were asked to nominate up to 10 recruiting firms; firms could not nominate themselves. More than 26,000 nominations were collected, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.

Alaant was also chosen in 2020 by NYS-SHRM as one of the Best Companies to Work for in New York, and named one of the nation’s Top 10 Employer Branding Consulting/Services Companies for 2019 by HR Tech Outlook.
