Dinamiks Ltd adds roles functionality to its world class employee performance management solution, Dinamiks

July 4th 2013.  Chichester, UK.   Dinamiks, the cloud-based employee performance management solution with users on four continents, has been enhanced through the addition of roles-led functionality, which gives management greater flexibility at employee appraisal time and throughout the year.

UK-developed Dinamiks features three roles, which between them (i)enable teams in remote locations to have a local manager in addition to a line manager at head office, who can support their personal development and manage local objectives, all of which can be aligned to the business goals;

(ii) allow a second manager to review, comment and provide a second level sign off – useful for businesses that like the assurance of a second review as part of their sign off of the performance appraisal;

(iii) allow mentors to be associated with individuals within or across teams. This functionality is useful because mentors can be very beneficial in sharing knowledge and skills to develop team members and teams.

Shirley Barnes, Client Relationship Director, Dinamiks Ltd, says, “The added roles functionality in Dinamiks comes in response to user demand across continents. We listen carefully to our users because they are at the forefront of using the cloud-based approach in HR and are keen to deepen their use of Dinamiks across their organisations. The new functionality has been beta tested with them and meets all their requirements.”

Dinamiks Ltd launches “Objectives Weighting” option for its online employee performance management and appraisal tool, Dinamiks, to give a clear view of the importance assigned to objectives

– Improves productivity and sharpens focus –

November 9th 2012. Dinamiks Ltd’s new “Objectives Weighting” option – launched November 8th 2012 for its online employee performance management and appraisal tool, Dinamiks – gives a clear view of the importance assigned to objectives by users, and of the financial or other value of a business objective.

“Objectives Weighting improves employee productivity and sharpens focus,” says Shirley Barnes, Client Relationship Director, Dinamiks Ltd. “If applied, it will improve the 80/20 rule, which is that 80 per cent of productivity is accounted for by only 20 per cent of staff. Organisations need to improve the productivity of a greater percentage of their employees if they want to grow their margins.”

Introduced by SME customer demand, Objectives Weighting allows the administrator of Dinamiks to assign a percentage-based weighting to an objective, giving both employer and employee, or group of employees, a better understanding of its value to the business and if, or when, it should be prioritised over other objectives.

The value can be financial, time to be spent on meeting the objective or complexity of the task.

The tool can also be used when calculating and assigning financial rewards across a group of individuals.

“Objectives Weighting is a powerful new tool in any move to improve employee and business performance,” says Barnes, “because it gives the direction and focus necessary for the most efficient way to meet an objective.”

Weighting is decided by management and/or by an individual employee or group of employees, and reflects the importance of the objective to the organisation.

Barnes adds, “Objectives Weighting is a breakthrough for online employee performance. For the first time, it gives a clearly understood, visual, real-time idea of the scale of the task faced by an employee or group of employees, to meet an objective.

“And when assigned to a timescale, Objectives Weighting gives a further idea of the value to the business of the objective or target, and the extent to which it should be prioritised over others. In addition, it will show if training, coaching or mentoring is required in order for an objective to be met, or met more quickly.”

Objectives Weighting can be trialled as part of a free trial of Dinamiks. https://www.dinamiks.com/freetrial.aspx

Venture Housing Association selects Dinamiks as its employee performance management tool

4th September 2012.  Chichester, UK.  Venture Housing Association has selected Dinamiks as its employee performance management tool of choice and purchased a 12 month licence to use the online tool for all staff, including management.

Venture, which owns and manages 1300 homes in Liverpool and the Wirral, will use Dinamiks to align business goals and objectives to the annual Personal Development Review (PDR) process.

Developed by Chichester-based Dinamiks Ltd, Dinamiks is a cloud application that dispenses with need at the customer end for software installation and time consuming updates. Customers manage it themselves to give an easy and quick way to initiate and  process PDRs and other functions.

Graeme Freeman, Business Improvement Co-ordinator at Venture, said all 33 staff, including management, will use it and be able to see at a glance where they are in their  individual personal development plan, as part of their ongoing professional development.

“What we liked about Dinamiks is that it’s an online tool that fully automates the appraisal and other processes and keeps the information in one place,” Freeman said, “while mitigating the risks we would face if we hosted a solution ourselves.

“And unlike other solutions we looked at, it was designed for SMEs and so is not loaded with features we don’t need, as the bigger solutions are.”

Shirley Barnes, Client Relationship Director, Dinamiks Ltd, welcomed Venture as the latest in a string of new customers, which join a client base that is spread over three continents.

About Venture Housing Association

Venture was formed in the early 1970s by a group of Liverpool professionals working on a voluntary basis. The first development of two bedroom flats was completed in 1974 and, in 1976, the association appointed its first full-time member of staff. Today, the association owns and manages 1300 homes in Liverpool and the Wirral.

Today, Venture now employs 33 members of staff but the organisation is still controlled by a voluntary Board of Management. More at www.vha.org.uk
