FORMAX places order for Dinamiks, the online employee performance management tool

June 28th 2012.  After a three month evaluation of Dinamiks, FORMAX – a global manufacturer of reinforced composite materials used in the automotive, wind energy and marine sectors – has purchased a licence to use the online employee performance and talent management tool.

Developed by Dinamiks Ltd of Chichester, Dinamiks will be used by FORMAX to “standardise the company’s appraisal process across departments and achieve greater efficiency for all staff – management included, ” says Oliver Wessely, Managing Director. “These were the core business drivers behind our decision to use an online tool like Dinamiks.”

The three month trial came after the Leicester-based company researched a range of employee performance solutions.

Dinamiks was chosen “because it appealed as a user friendly, online and good value option and impressed us with the customer support provided during our trial period – which has continued to be similarly responsive now that our subscription has gone live,” Wessely said, adding:

“It can be run by managers almost totally on their own, which has the benefit of minimising the need for Human Resources staff to be involved in the appraisal process.”

Another benefit “is that the objectives set for senior managers have doubled as an agenda for monthly senior management meetings. That has helped with focus and ensuring objectives are attended to and met.”

Shirley Barnes, Client Relationship Director, Dinamiks Ltd, said FORMAX joins other leaders in their fields as users of Dinamiks, including firms in computer security, oil and gas, commercial property interior design, pharmaceutical manufacturing and marketing, and banking.

FORMAX is a leading global manufacturer of composite reinforcements, specialising in the production of lightweight carbon fibre multiaxials and highly engineered glass fibre and aramid fibres.

Dinamiks Ltd offers 60 days free use of Dinamiks to help companies adapt to new retirement legislation

Dinamiks helps employers demonstrate just cause and follow due procedure, while managing employees’ performance

May 31st 2011.  Dinamiks Ltd, the online employee performance measurement provider, is offering new users 60 days free use of its online tool, Dinamiks.  The move is designed to help companies adapt to the new retirement legislation, which sees the default retirement age of 65 being phased out from April 6th 2011.

Replacing the usual seven day free usage, the free 60 days will enable users to take advantage of the six month transition period to full implementation of the legislation,  and put protective measures in place including demonstrating just cause and following due procedure.

“The change in retirement age legislation has consequences for many businesses, large or small, including firms having to have a good reason to ‘retire’ someone,” says Shirley Barnes, Client Services Director, Dinamiks Ltd.

“That could spell trouble for employers unless they can demonstrate just cause and follow due procedure.

“Many companies will have situations where age, experience and capability may be a challenge and where the business will require evidence leading up to and beyond the legislation change, to justify why staff should retire from a role – or even why they should stay,” says Barnes.

“Employers who fail to embrace the new legislation may face claims of unfair dismissal and discrimination.

“It’s our view, though, that the legislation also gives firms an opportunity to get a better grip on their employees’ performance and thereby deliver a boost to the performance of the business.”

New redundancy legislation

Other new challenges faced by employers in 2011 are the higher costs associated with making employees redundant.  The maximum limits on statutory unfair dismissal compensation, redundancy payments and other awards were increased on February 1st.

“Dinamiks can assist here, too, because it helps employers conform to employment law,” says Barnes. “It does this by providing an audit trail of performance, behaviour, attitude and the ability of individuals to meet set objectives.”
