“I knew it was needed as I needed it too” – Tim Martin, WorkInConfidence CEO
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 directors. It was clear something was missing in organisations. Problems like harassment and bullying were getting missed, and so were engagement opportunities. Employees were lacking a voice, companies were missing insights.
We set out to build WorkInConfidence.
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 (or with me). Having been a corporate lawyer in both London and Bangkok I had seen it all.

When Tim isn’t turning struggling companies into successful organisations, 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!
As COO for a small business, Neil gets involved in every aspect from sales to development to marketing. By trade, Neil is a software developer and still loves nothing more than getting his hands dirty and cutting some code. Prior to joining WorkInConfidence, Neil worked for a variety of companies including start-ups, software houses and corporates including IBM, Yellow Pages and Admiral Computing.
When Neil isn’t delivering quality software, he can be found watching detective series on TV or blogging about his latest travelling adventures. Music is also incredibly important to Neil whether listening to records or going to gigs. This comes as no surprise as he once made a record with his local football club and was interviewed by Timmy Mallet on radio!
When Kat first met Tim and Neil she loved their infectious enthusiasm and the whole ethos of WorkInConfidence, so jumped at the chance to be their Social Media Manager. Having a background in change management and administration, Kat keeps the social media on track, growing the WorkInConfidence profile and engaging with our clients and market influencers.
Kat’s love for all things disco means that her three girls are well versed in all the greats from the 70s, 80s and 90s – much to her husband’s bemusement!
Artur’s background has always been in software and technology having started his career for a large corporate company. Since then he has worked with at WorkInConfidence as our Development Manager.

Sheila has had an exciting and varied career, starting in recruitment before moving to Tetra Pac, Procter & Gamble and then the NHS. She is now financial controller for WorkInConfidence.
When Sheila isn’t crunching numbers she can be found boxing. She couldn’t live without her spider catcher, as Sheila is petrified of them.

In over 30 years in business I came to understand that trusted communications and understanding between business leaders and their staff was key to building a healthy organisation where everyone could thrive and develop. The Workinconfidence platform is an amazing asset for companies that share this view on organisational health and I feel very privileged to be part of helping the team build a service that I believe can have a meaningfully positive impact on employees and organisations alike.
