Hartley Wintney [Hampshire] based Aster Maintenance Ltd, specialists in commercial building maintenance and engineering services, has purchased a licence to use Dinamiks, the cloud based, online employee performance management and appraisal tool.
UK-developed Dinamiks will allow management to roll out appraisals to staff via web access, and dispense with paper reports and long, drawn out appraisal meetings, and enable employees to look at – and add notes to – their individual performance appraisal reports at any time. It will also allow management to monitor employee performance continuously, throughout the year, and provide essential training when and where required to help any under performing staff meet their targets and the company’s objectives.
Aster Maintenance Managing Director Mark Shadrake said, “Dinamiks will give our appraisals continuity and the benefit of conforming to industry best practice, which has been variable in the past due to different managers bringing in their own ideas about appraisals.”
He added, “Dinamiks will get staff more involved in the performance management and appraisal processes – and in a more friendly way, because it dispenses with the unknown element of the face to face interviews, which can be challenging and off-putting to staff, to the detriment of their appraisals. We also expect it to help with bringing staff together more effectively as a team, because of the team-building that use of Dinamiks encourages.
“Finally, management will be able to compare individual performance over months and years, by looking at easy-to-understand displays in Dinamiks and using it to maintain or improve performance if necessary.”
