Why Fidelio?

Our Origin Story

Ludwig van Beethoven wrote only 1 opera over the course of his career, entitled Fidelio. While history remembers it as a masterpiece, it was Beethoven’s perseverance through 10 grueling years of disappointing drafts and numerous failed releases that tells the real story.  

Like Beethoven, we understand that the journey is filled with hard earned victories and disappointing setbacks. As industry veterans in the HRO space, our combined experiences in challenging the status quo, pushing the boundaries of institutional thinking and executing ideas into actions have helped shape our perspective and reinforced our understanding of just how hard transformational change can be. Trust me, we have the scars to prove it.

Why Fidelio?

We didn’t get here alone. And neither will you.
