Helping you to pave your road to Success
One element I have noticed and love about Keen: is that there is a great deal of openness and transparency. Everyone feels heard and is happy to share and learn from each other. From my first day, I felt comfortable sharing my ideas and have been asking my fellow colleagues for their experiences or tips for challenges I faced. I feel part of a team, and the way we see success is as a team and growing together.
On that note, being at the forefront of the recruitment process of WeAreKeen as the internal Corporate Recruiter and the person who will be by your side through the whole process - I wanted to share with you what our steps look like. Our recruitment process is pretty straight forward and being transparent with our people and applicants is a top priority at WeAreKeen.
