Ben Keen

In 2010, Iraq War veteran Ben Keen was faced with a life-changing decision: Get help, find work, and live the life he wanted—or continue a downward spiral of emotional turmoil and dependency. Today it’s abundantly clear that he made all the right choices, including engaging with a staffing company.
When asked to describe Ben Keen, staffing industry executive Susie Dietrich, SPHR, answers quickly: “Ben is the real deal.” It’s a simple response, but an exceptionally accurate one. Keen is the 2016 National Staffing Employee of the Year—an honor he was thrilled to receive. It is, after all, a well-deserved culmination of hard work, dedication, and making a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

Keen worked as a contract employee with Dietrich’s firm, e-Staff Consulting Group, in Pittsburgh, PA, in 2013. Today Keen is a valued contract employee of TEKsystems, another staffing firm, headquartered in Hanover, MD, and he’s currently on assignment as a technical operations analyst with PNC Bank. Jason Lis, director of branch operations for TEKsystems in Pittsburgh, says Keen has been a valuable addition to the company. Keen receives numerous accolades from the client and provides outstanding leadership to his on-site team—composed of both contract and permanent staff. The
bank recently chose to extend Keen’s contract for another six months.
