For the second straight year, Alaant is the only Capital Region firm to receive Best of Staffing® Client and Talent awards, based entirely on superior customer ratings
Albany, NY – Alaant Workforce Solutions, the leading professional workforce services firm in New York’s Capital Region, today announced it has been honored with two prestigious awards for providing outstanding customer service. For the second consecutive year, Alaant is the only locally owned and operated Capital Region recruiting firm to be recognized with both the Best of Staffing® Client Award and Best of Staffing® Talent Award – based entirely on ratings provided by clients and candidates – which are presented by ClearlyRated in partnership with CareerBuilder, Indeed and Glassdoor.
Fewer than 2 percent of all recruiting firms in North America are selected to receive the awards, which recognize exceptional customer satisfaction as measured through a rigorous survey of companies, candidates and placed employees conducted last October 3 through 17. Clients of winning agencies are more than three times as likely to be completely satisfied, and candidates they’ve placed are nearly twice as likely to be completely satisfied, as compared to those working with non-winning agencies.
“This recognition is especially meaningful because it means we are meeting our most important objective: providing outstanding customer service to the clients we are privileged to work with,” said Miriam Dushane, Managing Partner of Alaant Workforce Solutions. “These prestigious awards are testament to Alaant’s superb professional team, which is passionate about addressing the needs of employers and job seekers, proactive in delivering measureable results, and proud of assisting clients as they build successful businesses and careers.”
This is the fourth consecutive year Alaant has won the Best of Staffing® Client Award. With a satisfaction rating of 80 percent among the employers it works with – including satisfaction scores of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 80 percent of its clients – Alaant far exceeded the industry average of -2 (minus two) percent, and surpassed the 74 percent average of winning agencies.
In receiving the Best of Staffing® Talent Award for the second straight year, Alaant scored a satisfaction rating of 79 percent among candidates it served – with scores of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 82 percent of placed employees – which outpaced the average of 67 percent among winning firms, and more than tripled the industry average of 24 percent.
In addition, 80 percent of clients and 82 percent of candidates/employees placed said they were very likely to recommend Alaant to a friend or colleague.
Best of Staffing® is the only award in the U.S. and Canada that recognizes firms proven to provide superior service based completely on the ratings given to them through third party, validated survey responses. The survey is conducted by ClearlyRated, the world’s leading provider of client and job candidate service quality research for staffing agencies.
“Now more than ever, it is important for staffing firms to deliver consistently remarkable experiences to the clients and talent they work with,” said ClearlyRated’s CEO Eric Gregg. “This year’s Best of Staffing winners have shown their commitment to exceptional service, committing to not only measuring satisfaction, but taking action on the feedback. I couldn’t be more proud to showcase these industry leaders alongside feedback from their actual clients and candidates, and applaud them for their commitment to making improvements at their respective firms.”
The Best of Staffing® awards are the latest to be received by Alaant, which has been honored for three consecutive years by Forbes as one of America's Best Recruiting Firms, and by HR Tech Outlook as one of the nation’s Top 10 Employer Branding Consulting/Services Companies for 2019. Alaant has helped more than 400 Capital Region companies attract, acquire, engage and retain over 4,000 elite employees over the past decade, utilizing innovative practice areas such as Talent Acquisition Partnerships and Employer Brand Strategy.
