Reopening and Workforces, Worker Burnout, Starting the Conversation of Race, and More!
The reopening of businesses across the Capital Region is an encouraging sign. At the same time, we know it brings a number of workforce challenges. We want to remind you that the Alaant team is available and ready to assist with all of your workforce needs.
With a host of virtual tools and resources at our disposal, we have been helping both candidates and employers during the COVID-19 pandemic. That commitment remains strong as people and businesses get back on their feet. Whether you're a job seeker or an employer needing assistance with employee recruitment, retention or engagement, we're always just a phone call, email or text away.
Our employees are slowly returning to the office, and their wellbeing remains our top priority. We are following all state and federal guidelines to ensure everyone stays safe and healthy. In the meantime, out of an abundance of caution, our office remains closed to visitors, and all meetings, interviews and events are being conducted virtually. We will keep you posted as that situation changes.
If you need us, we're here. Please call us at (518) 689-3140. We're eager to help your business on the road to recovery!
