Turnkey solutions, strong as stone: that's why some of the most prestigious names in business turn to Keystone as their Italian partner. More than just executive search, too: Keystone founded Italy's first firm specialized exclusively on digital talents.
The keystone in a stone arch is the critical element that makes the arch self-supporting. Likewise, Keystone aims to be a strong and reliable partner for its clients and candidates.
Keystone also understands the “key” to be short for “turnkey.” This executive search company strives to offer complete solutions for professionals looking for new and challenging business opportunities.
Combining the Latest Media with a Personal Touch
For its core business, Keystone avails itself of all the latest tools, including new media, evolved social networking, and a sophisticated database. At the same time, they honor the uniqueness of each client, industry, business culture, functional area, and job.
Considering their approach to quality, it’s no wonder Keystone’s client list includes names as diverse as they are prestigious: Dolce & Gabbana, Boston Consulting Group, JVC Kenwood, and ABB represent just a small slice.
K-digital - The First Italian Firm Specialized Exclusively on Digital Talents
Cloud manufacturing, IoT, advanced human machine interface, and augmented reality are just some of the new technologies awaiting manufacturing companies.
The evolution of the industrial, business and consumer context and the speed with which it is emerging make it indispensable for businesses to develop a new generation of skilled workers and quickly develop their existing ones.
Meeting these new demands also means finding the right people for these “new” jobs. To rise to the challenge, Keystone established a new brand, K-digital, the first company in Italy focused solely on research and assessment of digital transformation resources.
