“I knew it was needed as I needed it too” – Tim Martin,  WorkInConfidence CEO

Tim’s Story

The second time a boss tried to bully me into ignoring fraud I began to wonder if there was something wrong with business (or with me!).So began our journey. I spoke to dozens of people – from front line staff to FTSE 100 & Dow Jones directors. It was clear something was lacking in organizations. Problems like harassment, discrimination and workplace bullying were getting missed, and so were employee engagement opportunities. Employees were without a voice and companies were missing insights, neither was good for organizational health.

We set out to build WorkInConfidence.

Tim Martin

CEO

The first time a boss tried to bully me into going along with fraud I thought I was unlucky. The second time it happened, I began to wonder if there was something wrong with business culture (or with me). Having been a corporate lawyer in both London and South East Asia I had seen it all.

So began the journey. I spoke to dozens of people – from front line staff to FTSE 100 and Dow Jones directors. It was clear something was missing. Problems like harassment, discrimination and workplace bullying were getting missed, and so were employee engagement opportunities. Employees were without a voice, corporations were missing insights and so WorkInConfidence was born.

When Tim isn’t turning struggling corporations into successful organizations, he can be found cooking, especially Asian or Peruvian cuisine. Tim also competes in Ironman competitions each year and he once caught the train to Ulan Batur because he liked the name!
