February 3rd 2012. Chichester, UK. The first quarter of any year is a common time to roll out, or start to plan, employee performance appraisals. If they are paper based, these appraisals will be a time-consuming and laborious task, says Dinamiks Ltd, which provides an on-line solution and is extending its free trial offer from the usual seven to 21 days, valid if booked by March 31st 2012.
“Employee performance appraisal and management can improve business performance by a typical 10-20 per cent,” says Shirley Barnes, Client Relationship Director, Dinamiks Ltd – developer of Dinamiks, the online employee performance management solution.
“In cases where over-manning or poor performance hasn’t been properly identified and analysed, the figure can be above 30 per cent.”
Barnes recommends employers tick some boxes in order to optimise appraisals – which, she adds, can easily be run on a continuous or regular basis when an online solution is used.
Boxes to tick include (i) Key competency or competencies – the things staff are good at e.g. time management and working well to deadlines (ii) Skillset per employee – from administrative and computer skills to leadership abilities (iii) Ability of staff to meet business goals and company objectives (iv) Ability of staff to work well in a team (v) Are training or coaching? (vi) Compliance. Does each employee conform to the company’s values and to any external standards? (vii) Are personal development plans required for recording progress against planned development targets?
“Two questions to ask are whether or not the company uses an offline computer-based or online system” says Barnes, “and, if not, does it want to take appraisals and employee performance management to a new level?”
