When Matt Kutin, Andrew Chayut, and Robert Kahn, first founded Green Key Resources, they knew they didn’t want to name their staffing firm after themselves. “It was so much bigger than us,” Matt mentioned. “We wanted to separate ourselves from other firms where the owners are the face of the company.”
After much deliberation, they settled upon the color green, which reflected success and freshness. The “key to success” and “resources” idea came naturally, as their goal was to support everyone’s needs at the firm, not just one person’s.
“Back in the day, it was a lot of emailing and cold-calling,” Matt adds, recalling their early beginnings. They knew their industry was all about communicating with other people, but what about true connections? The three founders wanted their firm to be built on human-first mentality, where strong relationship were made between recruiters and their clients and candidates.
Green Key launched their first practice area, Accounting & Finance, in 2004. Since then, they have launched several other practice areas and teams, including Pharma, Healthcare, Professional Support, Information Technology, and Architecture, Engineering & Construction. The people of Green Key are located all across the country, but are made up of empathetic individuals bringing new ideas and ethical hiring practices to the firm every day.
Brooke Stemen, Director of Talent Acquisition, works closely with Matt to hire and onboard new employees at the company. She has reiterated that aligned values are a huge factor when considering a candidate. Green Key’s mission is to build a better future through a people-first recruiting philosophy and it’s important that all new hires are prepared to adapt this practice.
