What impressed us about Keynote was their methodical approach to their services. They’ve clearly thought through the fundamental questions and developed a system to provide the best solution. Their offering is customizable and client specific, which made it truly appealing. Without a doubt, the team believes in what they do and that comes through in their approach.

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.
