SureSet signs to use Dinamiks, the online employee performance management tool

January 17th 2013.   Market-leading permeable paving company SureSet UK Ltd is the latest in a string of new users of Dinamiks, the online employee performance management tool. The Warminster-based firm is to use Dinamiks with immediate effect after purchasing an annual licence.

Dinamiks will be utilised by SureSet to replace annual paper-based performance appraisals and roll out other performance-based initiatives.

Diane Crowther, Finance and HR Director, SureSet, explains why the manufacturer decided to go with the online, paperless approach. “We looked into employee performance systems while reviewing our HR procedures, because we knew that we tended to use our paper appraisal system just once a year.

“We felt that as a modern business we wanted to do much more with appraisals, and that an online system would provide greater flexibility, quick and easier input and near-instant analysis of the results.”

Crowther adds, “We researched suppliers and chose Dinamiks because we felt it provided the best value for money and the best feedback to our enquiries.

“SureSet will use Dinamiks to ensure that employees understand what is expected of them by setting clear targets for them within the system, updating when necessary, monitoring throughout the year and reviewing the targets at the end of 12 months,” she says. “We will use the job descriptions for each role to identify targets to be set.”

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.”

Venture Housing Association selects Dinamiks as its employee performance management tool

September 4th 2012. Venture Housing Association has selected Dinamiks as its employee performance management tool 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

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.
