Ethos works with growing and growth-stage companies focused on scaling themselves by investing in their people and culture. Our clients believe that developing healthy cultures creates the conditions for their businesses, teams, and individuals to thrive. We work collaboratively across all elements of culture from career progression and career pathing to hiring practices, visioning, and diversity, equity, and inclusion to achieve their goals.
Ethos helps with some of the hardest and most important problems we face: how do we work well together as a team, and what to do when we don’t. Alida brings an amazing balance of intellectual understanding and human empathy that connects with everyone on the team and has helped us grow tremendously.
Alida of Ethos is a true partner and an extension of my team. I feel as though she truly cares about my personal success and that of the people who work for me. Since first helping me with on-boarding and Mission, Vision, and Values at the beginning of the year, her combination of true industry expertise, empathy and 150% dedication has been paramount in creating the culture at SimplyBe.
It’s safe to say that my culture is the most successful aspect to my business, and culture not only eats strategy for breakfast, but everything. Because it is everything. There is no organization out there like Ethos, and those companies that take advantage of its work will undoubtedly win.
Alida has a gift for recognizing the needs of the team and customizing the training to meet those needs. We hired Alida to provide training to our leadership team and managers on topics like giving and receiving feedback and active listening. Before conducting trainings, she met with Rick, our CEO, and me to customize everything for Shiftgig.
Alida has also been a great mentor to me in providing guidance and listening at the times I needed it most. Alida is a master of her craft and a resource that we will be using over and over.
Alida has been instrumental in partnering with us on a variety of training initiatives across diversity, equity, and inclusion and leadership development. From the get go, she has asked the right probing questions to understand our team and challenges in order to recommend the best course of action. She has worked with us to customize the content in a way that resonated with our entire population– everyone from individual contributor to new manager to
leadership. We all know these are lofty issues to tackle– it’s a marathon not a sprint!
Alida has been able to break complex topics down into approachable, actionable items and promote thoughtful dialogue in a safe space for our team. She goes above and beyond to position herself as a thought partner rather than a consultant.
Ethos helped our team develop a unique and effective interview process that embodied our culture and enabled us to understand the strengths and problem solving skills of highly qualified candidates.
Since implementing our interview process playbook, we have drastically decreased our time-to-hire and have received positive feedback from almost all candidates regarding their interview experience.
Alida was attentive to our needs and ensured everyone involved in talent acquisition at Lightstream received training for the role they played in the interview process. It was a pleasure to work with Alida and I recommend her services to any company wishing to improve their interview process.
