About EtiDhi

EtiDhi is a combination of two Sanskrit words which broadly means “Approach to Wisdom”. We chose this name as it embodied our philosophy of doing business.

We believe people and talent are at the heart of any organization and if you care for them wisely, be it employees, stakeholders or clients, you start to become more productive, fruitful and profitable.

Our Philosophy

At EtiDhi, we continuously strive to exceed our client expectations through the delivery of our promised solutions and services. Through our core values, we aim to constantly enrich the ecosystem we operate in.

Formed by a team of seasoned IT / ITES professionals, the aim of EtiDhi is to build a scalable and flexible business model that can attract real talent and provide flexible opportunities for them to realize their real potential; while truly adding value to our clients in a transparent and collaborative manner by bringing the best talent to bear to solve their business problems.

EtiDhi Value System

Human Capital, Talent or put plainly the people you work with are really the only real long term differentiator for any organization. It is these people who create the IP, frameworks, tools and proprietary knowledge that helps the best firms remain leaders in their industry. If we take care of our people and of our clients, they will in turn take care of us!

An EtiDhir’s word is her identity. As they say years of hard work in building your reputation can be ruined by a single instance of failure to deliver on a promise.

Never compromise on quality, ethics and honesty. Treat others the way you would like to be treated; play fair and the same will eventually come back to you.

In today’s business environment, this value is absolutely essential because the rate of technology change is making many jobs redundant and unless one is able to adapt to this change, one’s skills can very quickly become irrelevant.

We believe that as responsible citizens, part of our effort and also our profits should be reinvested in making our communities better and bring about positive change in the environments we operate in.

Flexible Team structure

  • The way we are structured is around industry practices and core service offerings. Each industry practice is headed by a Mentor and each Service offering by an Expert.
  • While remaining true to our core philosophy and approach to solving our client’s problems, each business unit has full flexibility in structuring itself to achieve its goals & objectives.
  • This means working with industry experts, using freelance expertise and also collaborating through strategic partnerships to bring differentiated solutions that truly make a difference to our client’s business.
  • All our associates (EtiDhirs) are fully empowered to do the best they can for their client. Our flat organization structure supports and enables the final end-goal of client satisfaction.
