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

I've had the pleasure of working with Keynote on several different talent and HR initiatives. I have always been impressed by their approach, process and execution. I'd highly recommend working with Keynote and look forward to our future relationship.

Our company was very impressed with what Keynote had to offer in the way of recruitment, onboarding, coaching and follow-up. Additionally the caliber of candidates that were referred to us by Keynote were impressive leading us to make a great hire. We would recommend Keynote to any company.

HR Manager - EODC
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.
