The hiring of new staff members can have important repercussions, both on technical and interpersonal levels. Ethelo allows groups to have a say in who their organizations hire key players, enabling them to identify well-qualified candidates who also have high-levels of overall popular support.
The pooling and channeling of investment resources requires thoughtful analysis. In this demo, Ethelo combines dozens of perspectives to determine the best allocation of funds, allowing each investor to have a proportional influence on the final decision, depending on how much each has invested.
Vancity Credit Union
It’s not easy to allocate a $400,000 grant among 50 leading organizations playing critical roles in food supply. Add to the challenge the coordination of 11 judging panelists evaluating over 105 supporting-documents. Vancity’s team of food experts deployed Ethelo to streamline its 2-stage ‘EnviroFund’ assessment process. The platform brought structure and cohesion to a complex evaluative discussion of over 38K potential scenarios, saving around 12 hours of in-person meeting time. After a first experience in 2015, Ethelo is being used again for the same purpose in 2016.
Public Works and Government Services
The Canadian Federal Government owns, manages and leases billions of dollars of real estate. It reconciles the accommodation needs of a variety of departments (long and short term) with taxpayer value for money. To manage risk and execute real estate decision-making with foresight and objectivity, the department of Public Works follows a highly structured and well documented process of risk factor identification, assessment, and risk-based cost adjustments of potential scenarios.
