About us

Expert consultancy, flexible HR technology and unrivalled support, all in one place.

We are an established consultancy, trusted as a strategic partner by a number of the UK and world’s leading companies. Our team provides expertise, configurable technology and end-to-end support for a variety of people programmes right across the employee lifecycle. These include employee engagement and pulse surveys, 360 degree feedback, leadership development, performance management and culture change initiatives. What really sets us apart though, and what our clients tell us they value most, is our flexibility, passion and spirit of partnership.

Our story

We started back in 1988. There were only a few of us at that stage, with one computer and a room stacked full of floppy disks (remember those?). Our business was focused just on management training and staff opinion surveys, as they were known then, before also branching into 360 degree feedback.

Fast forward 30 years and plenty has changed. There’s now quite a lot more of us here, and one or two more computers too. And, more importantly, both our consultancy-led services and technology platforms have evolved hugely.

But what remains the same is our philosophy; that companies will only truly harness the power of their people and realise their strategic objectives through having programmes that fit what their business needs.

Our approach

ETS employees sat in conversation

We mentioned our flexibility, passion and spirit of partnership. Well, what this means for our clients is that we help them by being:

  • Flexible in our approach and recognising that no two companies are the same and, therefore, no two solutions should be either
  • Passionate about what we do, about getting to know you and creating programmes that will really address your business needs
  • An extension of your own team, building a strong and strategic partnership with clients.

We are trusted by lots of top companies

As well as the flexibility of the ETS 360 tool, what we’ve come to value most is how responsive and helpful their team is – working with them feels like a real partnership.
