About Us

Kennison earns its reputation in the business community by providing, year after year, the strongest, most reliable placement services available in Boston. Whether identifying top talent for direct hire roles, or helping clients with temporary staffing solutions, we are guided by three defining principles: Experience, Service and Integrity.

Experience

Combined, Kennison and Associates represents more than 200 years of placement experience with Boston’s finest firms. The depth of our experience allows us to serve existing clients well, and to understand the needs of new clients and what makes them unique in the marketplace. Candidates know our consultants are respected industry veterans whose experience they can trust to guide them through the often difficult search process. They also know that by virtue of the strength of our professional relationships, they will gain access to Boston’s most prestigious employers.

Service

Effective service in the placement industry means identifying exceptional candidates for the right positions – right away and for the long term. Our reputation as Boston’s top placement firm brings us the best candidates, and the strength of our ongoing client relationships reflect our clients’ confidence in us. Whether you’re looking for a direct hire or temporary staffing solution, we are forever building our network of exceptional talent and are prepared to deliver results immediately. We listen well and communicate effectively, ensuring that prestigious clients and top-flight candidates find each other quickly.

Integrity

Our strength is in brokering relationships – with client companies, with candidates, and between the two. This can only be achieved with honesty and forthright communication. We believe it is important to share everything there is to know, on both sides of the equation, so that clients and candidates can make informed decisions. Our associates make a point of gathering all the information relevant to every placement, and if that information suggests a less than ideal fit between a client and a candidate, we will encourage a deeper inquiry, or present additional candidates. We work quickly, but we don’t look for the quick fix. We take the long view to preserve and enhance our good reputation.
