We make business better from the inside out
7 Steps to Building an Engaged Workforce
Meet Our Founder
Nigel McPolin, Founder & CEO
An MSc Occupational Psychology graduate from the School of Psychology, Queen’s University of Belfast , Nigel has spent the last 22 years specialising in employee engagement, organisational behaviour and culture. During this time, Nigel has learned that employee engagement is a uniquely personal experience for each employee. If employee engagement is uniquely personal, then the solution must also account for individual employees.
All employees can be great
This is Nigel’s driving passion and the founding philosophy behind etimes2. Nigel firmly believes that the employee shares responsibility for employee engagement and has devised a method to encourage each employee to play their part in building an amazing workplace. His goal is to help organisations to give their employees the opportunities to be great and deliver reduced absenteeism, increased productivity and higher profitability for their employers.
Away from work
He loves to spend family time with his wife and four daughters achieving work-life balance by pushing swings, going for walks (usually to play grounds to push swings), and feeding ducks!! Nigel enjoys hillwalking and playing handball.
We make business better from the inside out.
We are employee engagement experts. With over 22 years experience as Occupational Psychologists in workplaces, ranging from bluechip multinationals to SMEs to not-for-profits and public sector organisations we have built the knowledge and understanding of workplace dynamics necessary to take you beyond the data.
We understand people, because we know what drives them. Each member of your organisation is an individual with individual performance drivers. We are here to help you discover and unlock the potential in every employee.
We value each one as an individual and understand that they need more than a corporate engagement strategy. We believe that every employee needs control and that work should provide something more than a salary.
We are utilising technology to reach beyond management teams and create a positive impact on every person within your organisation.
What Makes Us Different
etimes2 is different. We specialise in bringing data to life and making it work for you.
We understand people and the dynamics of the workplace.We implicitly understand employee engagement.
We think differently. We believe changing the engagement narrative at the top level is only part of the story. We help you change the narratives of individual employees.
We think beyond the accepted definitions and solutions of employee engagement allowing us to focus on the needs of your people and your organisation.
We believe in sharing the responsibility for engagement to build the value of each employee and give them the control they need to excel in their job.
We partner with our clients and work with you to deliver the outcomes you need.
Who we are as an organisation is important to us. We have set out 3 core principles
We have integrity
In all that we do we are trustworthy and honest. Every relationship we have is built on this cornerstone.
Our reputation depends on it. From the product we bring to market to how we communicate with our clients and the promises we make. We take responsibility for what we do.
We are ambitious
We believe in ourselves and the technology we have developed. Together we can achieve every target and goal that we set.
