New training module for Dinamiks can help housing associations gain IIP accreditation

October 14th 2014, Chichester. Housing Associations interested in gaining Investors in People [IIP] accreditation are a target of a new training module for Dinamiks, the online employee performance management tool.

The module, available immediately, can help associations gain IIP accreditation by providing evidence that supports their submission.

IIP is the most successful good practice framework in the UK for gaining business improvement through development of staff. The Dinamiks training module helps association employees see what part they play in achieving an association’s aims and gain understanding and awareness of how their association operates, including how successful it is – or could be, if improved – in interacting with its local community.

“For many organisations, housing associations among them, achieving good practice can be a challenge because of the inter-related factors involved,” says Shirley Barnes, Client Relationship Director, Dinamiks Ltd, developer of Dinamiks. “The training module takes a lot of pressure off them.”

The module lists every step that is required to gain IIP accreditation and produces an audit trail per employee of the outcome of each step taken. It is this audit trail that IIP accepts as proof of meeting its standards.

The record of the audit trail is kept within Dinamiks on a secure server and is independent of a user’s own in-house data and analysis system, which helps to ensure that every aspect of the IIP accreditation process meets industry best practice standards.

The module allows a housing association to load all its training courses into Dinamiks. Any number of courses can then be linked to an employee’s performance appraisal form and associated with objectives that have to be met in order for accreditation to be attained.

In addition, the module complements Dinamiks’ existing employee performance planning [EDP] capability, which tracks all training, coaching and mentoring given to staff and links it to a performance objective, a competency or a value of the employer organisation.
