Holmes Murphy subsidiary looks to position, support, and align clients with Environmental, Social, and Governance standards and regulations
WAUKEE, Iowa, April 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, ethOs, a member of the Holmes Murphy brand family, announced the launch of a new, important, and timely offering called ESG Consulting Services.
For many companies, the term ESG may be relatively new but growing in popularity with organizational leadership teams.

“Ready or not, the ESG era is already upon us and growing in emphasis, and ethOs understands the importance of helping companies prepare for changes,” said Ali Payne, President of ethOs. “In fact, 2020 and 2021 were historic years for global regulation related to sustainability disclosure.

As part of its ESG Consulting Services, the ethOs team can help companies learn how to leverage ESG as part of their purpose, people, culture, brand, and overall value…
