What does « idoko » mean?
In Japanese, "idoko-ro" means address or residence. In a broader sense, "idoko" is a place where one feels confident and inspired, in the best conditions to grow and develop. Our emblem is a tree, come to the office so you can see what it’s all about. 😉
Why was idoko created?
idoko was created when Arnaud Gilberton and Timothy Lê crossed paths and realised they shared the same ambition to return to the essence of consulting. In its early days, idoko was somewhat a local partner for companies in the midst of the pandemic crisis. Then gradually, the firm strengthened its reputation as an innovative player in HR consulting aligned with the economic, social, and societal developments impacting the world of work.
What makes idoko different from other HR consulting firms?
idoko is a team of consultants, trainers and coaches who are all passionate about change and transformation in the world of work. Relations are the cement of transmission, so we make them central to our action, whether the focus be the relationship to oneself, to work, or to other people. We are convinced that the world is full of endless possibility, so we always make sure we offer our clients creative and original solutions.
What kinds of profiles do you have on your team?
We come from consulting, training, HR and legal backgrounds… There are no standard profiles at idoko. We value diversity and the enrichment each person’s unique journey brings to their person and consequently to our firm.
Who are your partners?
Coaches, trainers, psychologists, lawyers… individuals we have built a longstanding trust relationship with who share idoko’s values and convictions.

Do you have preferred sectors of intervention?
We work for all areas of activity both in public and private sectors: media and communication, banking, insurance, energy, construction, video-games, transport, metallurgy, health, luxury, tourism… We believe that the plurality of sectors we operate in guarantees the diversity and complementarity of our approaches.
