Improve Business Performance: Engage Your People
“Concentrating on employee engagement can help companies withstand, and possibly even thrive, in tough economic times.” Gallup Research
Engaged employees are key to your company’s success. Do you know how engaged your employees are? It can be difficult to measure and many companies spend unnecessary time and money designing bespoke engagement surveys.
Our turnkey employee engagement survey has been designed by our Organisational Psychologists specifically to make it easy and cost effective for you to measure how engaged your employees are. Our survey can be implemented in minutes with immediate feedback enabling you to make key business decisions based on data, facts and insights, improving engagement and enjoying the benefits that come with a highly engaged workforce.
Our Employee Engagement Survey: Key Features
Our Key Principles
- Etimes2 adds a bottom-up approach preparing your employees to embrace your company engagement strategy.
- Outcomes need to be actionable at all levels so only the most validated and most tangible engagement drivers are included.
- The process must promote engaging leadership so every leader receives feedback about engagement levels in their team and creates an action plan to tackle key issues.
- Engagement is a shared responsibility and individual engagement strategies are encouraged by engaging every employee to create a personal action plan.
- Employees feel empowered to contribute, collaborate and problem solve by the Etimes2 platform, enabling you to harness the collective intelligence of your workforce.
- All contributions carry potency, developing engaging conversations across your business.
8 Engagement Drivers
Etimes2 collaborated with three major universities to develop the diagnostic based on 8 Engagement Drivers. Reporting, based on these 8 drivers, is delivered at 4 levels – individual employee; line manager; team; and organisation.
8 Engagement Drivers
Work Life Balance – the ability to strike a balance between the primary responsibilities of work and private lifestyle.
Company Pride – deriving a sense of purpose and pride from doing challenging work, high standards and skilled colleagues.
Communication & Clarity – clear and concise information where employees know exactly what is expected.
Meaningfulness – each employee feels a clear purpose based on doing a job that is stimulating, challenging and valued.
Performance Management – clear about what is expected, contribution to wider success and validated through regular support and feedback.
Personal Development – each employee has opportunities to grow, regular development and control over how the job is carried out.
Relationship & Team Ethic – building a strong team ethic allowing each team member to develop a clear identity and sense of belonging.
Support & Recognition – employees feel empowered to apply their full talent to derive a strong sense of personal accomplishment.
5 Reasons Why Etimes2 is Different From Other Engagement Surveys
|1.||Engagement is an individual and personal experience||At etimes2, we recognise that while organisational culture is important, each employee will perceive it through his/her own lens.|
The etimes2 platform gives every employee personalised feedback and tools to interact with his/her workplace in a more engaged manner.
|2.||Engagement is about individual identity in the workplace||Etimes2 empowers employees to take action on their own engagement levels by seeking the answers to their ‘ask’.|
Each employee chooses to go to work for his/her own unique reason. Etimes2 enables each employee to discover what that reason is and empowers him/her to take action to satisfy that need.
|3.||Engagement should be built from the bottom up||Change cannot occur without awareness. An engaging workplace can’t be properly built from the top-down.|
We raise the individual employee’s awareness of his/her own (dis)engagement drivers and empower him/her to take action. Etimes2 shares responsibility for building engagement among all stakeholders.
|4.||Engagement is about development and shared responsibility||Etimes2 seeks to empower the person to understand his/her work and do the right thing.|
We provide each employee and line manager with the feedback and tools to take positive engagement building action at the individual and team levels .
|5.||Engagement is more than data reports. It needs to mean something.||We place a clear focus on understanding the dynamics in the workplace that drive engagement and performance. We use this data to involve individuals, teams, line managers and senior management in building an Amazing Workplace.|

Are there premium level features in etimes2?
No. Our mission is to provide your organisation with the tools to build an engaging workplace. We do not believe in giving you and your employees feedback without making the tools to take guided action available. Everything is included for the fee we quote you.
How easy is it for employees to get started?
Very. Employees can participate on any device. All they need to do is activate the link, indicate the team they belong to and start completing the survey. Users report back that etimes2 is a very ‘friendly design’ and ‘very easy to use’.
How much support is available and how flexible is it?
We will agree your bespoke support needs during our initial discussions. Please note that email and phone support is always available at no extra cost and we also build in a number of support days provided at no additional cost. We take pride in how we support our clients and intend to provide the best support possible. Ask us to demonstrate this to you first so you can see the scale and flexibility of the support offered.
How often can we run the survey? How many additional questions can we ask?
Unlimited is the most simple answer. You can run the survey as often as you like, though we recommend that you only run it 2-3 times per year. You can ask as many additional questions as you like, either from our suggested bank of questions, or craft your own questions. You are not limited to ‘engagement’ questions either. Ask your employees anything you need to, making it easy to involve them in many business issues.
Does on-boarding and set-up support incur any costs?
No. We prefer to keep costs simple, clear and competitive. The single fee we quote you will include set-up, on-boarding and the support your team needs to get etimes2 launched. We are always here for you.
Does etimes2 protect employee anonymity?
Yes. Survey responses, pulse question responses and individual employee action plans are all 100% anonymous.
Please note, there are also ‘open communication’ features on etimes2 designed to enable employees to be seen and recognised within and beyond their team. These are clearly sign-posted for employees as ‘non-anonymous’.
How do our employees access the Academy and Social Learning opportunities? Do they cost extra?
We feel obliged to give your employees the resources to develop and grow personally and professionally. After all, we provide each employee with personalised feedback based on their survey responses and we ask them to create an action plan. We don’t see the point in feedback without the means to take action. So, all these learning opportunities (valued at over £1,000 per employee) is available at no extra cost to you or the employee.
Who can see the reporting dashboard?
You are in complete control of this. You decide who has access.
