We are proud to work with some exceptional companies in a wide variety of industries.

We’ve filled several positions with Keynote and the ROI has been exceptional. We’ve saved time on recruiting and screening candidates and more importantly have been able to consistently find better quality people than we were ever able to on our own. The result is that our productivity and culture have never been better. Keynote’s approach is unique compared to other recruiting firms and offers our business much more value.

I was lucky enough to work with the Keynote team on several occasions. I appreciate the work they do and do very well. They find hundreds of potential candidates that can do the job, present the top candidates that they have thoroughly evaluated to fit within our company, and help to onboard and ensure their long-term success. I would strongly recommend using them to find the best person that will succeed.

The team at Keynote has spent a considerable amount of time to truly understand the culture of our company in order to find the right people who will succeed with us. Time was spent not on email or phone calls but rather in person touring our operation and spending time with the leadership team. As a trusted partner, they are enabling our company to scale and we look forward to our continued work together.
