Welcome to the future of work

The world of work is evolving at an unprecedented pace. Dynamic forces such as COVID-19, AI and remote working are rapidly evolving, complex topics that are fundamentally reshaping how and where we work. Most private and public sector leaders appreciate the need to act, but few have access to the data or insights needed to chart an effective path.

Our Story

Faethm was created to predict the effect of emerging technology on human capital management. We enable organisations to make informed choices, with actionable insights specific to their workforce.

We’re led by a team of product, technology and strategy executives with hands-on start-up and blue-chip experience. The team’s role in assessing the opportunity of technology, impact and worker re-skilling is recognised by leaders globally.

[Fath-uh m]

Fæthm - noun and verb - the original Celtic spelling of Fathom, meaning to learn, a measure of depth, the span of outstretched arms, and a welcoming gesture for the future.
