Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why Does Keller Use a Tailored Approach?

Keller’s approach to recruitment has been shaped by the unique personal and professional experiences of our team.

During Keller’s formative years as a company, our team exclusively used a one-fits-all recruitment strategy. A turning point for our team came when we were called on to place a candidate for a major client and it failed. Even though our strategy had worked for our past clients, it was not good enough this time. It soon became evident that the candidate we placed did not have the skills and experience needed to fulfill the client’s needs.

This experience, while still a failure, highlighted the shortcomings of using a generic approach to recruitment. It also motivated our team to adopt a more customized, client-first strategy. Instead of generalized staffing solutions, Keller instead focuses on finding candidates who meet the unique needs of our clientele.

This has allowed us to not only achieve long-term success as an agency, but also build lasting relationships with our clients and help numerous businesses from around the world.

What Happens if Keller Cannot Fill a Role?

In our experience, making use of a tailored recruitment approach ensures the most successful placements. However, sometimes even the best-laid plans don’t work out, and you may find yourself underwhelmed by or unsatisfied with a candidate.

While this happens very rarely, Keller provides the following guarantee in such cases: Provided the issue is brought to our attention within the first ninety days after the candidate is hired, Keller’s passionate team is happy to provide a more suitable replacement for any employee who fails to meet the requirements of our clients.
