Why Cannabis Leaders Choose KDSgreen
We Prioritize Client Success, Execution and Integrity.
With our finger on the pulse of the cannabis industry, KDSgreen partners with CEOs, Hiring Managers and other decision-makers at leading companies across the U.S., and consults with them on the best headhunting and recruitment practices for their business.
We Invest More Time on Fewer Searches.
Unlike most recruitment firms, we limit each recruiter’s desk to four searches or less at all times. Dedicating more recruiting time to fewer searches enables KDSgreen to be more thoughtful, more thorough, more precise and more responsive on each search – resulting in more accurate, qualified candidates in less time.
We Deliver the Right Fit.
Utilizing a combination of state-of-the-art technology and hands-on, results-oriented recruiting practices, KDSgreen employs strategic search tactics for a smooth and successful hiring process. We provide a thorough intake for every search, and meticulously break down the specific skills required for the position to deliver results with speed and accuracy.
We never present job-board resumes; instead, we leverage our proprietary database technology so searches are specific and from a carefully selected pool of top-tier, high-quality talent. As experts in the art of search and headhunting, we are highly proficient in identifying and building real relationships with candidates who are truly masters of their skills sets.
We also continuously invest and train in the latest cutting-edge tools and techniques that allow us to delve deep into industry-leading sites such as LinkedInRecruiter, StackOverflow, Dark Web, GitHub, Twitter and more, to gain direct access to candidates that other agencies can’t.
KDSgreen strictly maintains the highest standards in candidate evaluation and submission:
- Every candidate submittal must meet 90% or higher of the hard and soft skills our clients specify
- Submitted candidates must be willing to work within the salary range our clients specify
- Submitted candidates must be motivated by something other than money, as passion for the position ensures longevity and success for both the employer and candidate
We Provide Unparalleled Results.

- 95% of KDSgreen’s first-time clients become repeat clients

Three Recruitment Programs to Meet Your Specific Needs
Retained Search is a confidential and dedicated approach, which guarantees results. Retained Search requires an up-front deposit, which binds KDSgreen to finding the ideal candidate. Retained Search positions are always a top priority with ensured success, making it a viable option for clients, with no downside.
This model means that only KDSgreen will supply candidates for the open requirement; the search is not farmed out to multiple agencies. This search enables KDSgreen to dedicate significant resources and the time required to quickly produce the ideal candidate. There is a common misconception that having multiple recruiting agencies working on an assignment is in the company’s best interest, but this most often actually works against their goals.
Hiring independent contractors is an effective, highly flexible alternative to full-time staffing. Contractors provide immediate results, specialized skills, reduced liability and flexibility. Contract staffing often evolves into a “try-and-buy” situation, where clients, after having worked with the consultant for a period of time, develop a comfort level and conclude they would make an ideal permanent addition to the company. Contractors remain on the KDSgreen payroll until converting to a permanent role or the contract expires.
