Embodying the Athlos Academies Model

Just like our three-pillar model benefits the lives of Athlos students, it has its benefits in the workplace, too.

Athlos book club discussion

(and counting)

Prepared Mind

As a team, we’re constantly learning. Our monthly book club broadens our perspectives, challenges us to think creatively about applying key takeaways to our organization, and gives us a common language to use in the workplace.  We pride ourselves on truly being a learning organization.

Healthy Body

Athlos believes that students who lead active and healthy lives are better equipped to learn in the classroom. The same is true in the workplace — one of the best ways to stay sharp in the office is by taking a few quick, intentional movement breaks during the day.

Athlos Shout-Out

Performance Character

At Athlos, we use shout-outs as a way of celebrating our colleagues’ accomplishments and recognizing their demonstration of the Performance Character traits.  In turn, this helps build strong and supportive workplace relationships.
