A Modern Approach to Recruitment

Keynote Group

In a market saturated by placement agencies that are focused on completing a hiring transaction, Keynote answered the question organizations were really asking: How do we find, fit and retain exceptional talent? Executive Search and Recruitment alone solves one problem - finding people. It doesn’t solve the bigger challenges of productivity, engagement and retention.

With companies losing 25% of new employees within the first year, and 55% within two years, the best time to positively impact that is at the beginning – at time of hire.

Keynote Group and its subsidiaries were built to address these weaknesses in traditional employee search and recruitment. Our awarding winning team each achieved incredible individual successes in recruitment, executive search and business management. But when it came to how we view our industry, we were all often at odds with the metric driven, non-human approach of the business.

Recruitment and the people involved have become commoditized. This simply didn’t work for us. We believe the emphasis should be on the people and this shared ideology is central to how Keynote Group came to be. We are dedicated to humanizing recruitment and focused on helping organizations succeed because of the people within them.
