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.”

People Dynamics appointed channel partner for Dinamiks, the online employee performance management tool

May 2nd 2013  Preston-based People Dynamics Consultants Ltd,  specialists in HR and employee relations, has been appointed a channel partner for Dinamiks, the online employee performance management tool, by its UK developer, Dinamiks Ltd.

The partnership enables People Dynamics to expand its range of services and offer Dinamiks to clients and prospects regardless of their location. “End users don’t install the software or update it,” says People Dynamics Managing Director Chris Munnery, “because Dinamiks is a web-based, anywhere-anytime solution. It’s all done on the cloud.”

He sees Dinamiks fitting in well with the current phase of the business cycle. “Many companies which have managed to survive the economic downturn are now starting to  focus again on getting the best out of their staff, and getting their performance management in place before recruitment finally becomes a possibility again.”  Dinamiks, he adds, “has a place in every part of the cycle but provides a good launch pad for a business in the middle of it, which is where many firms are now.”

People Dynamics mainly provides its consultancy services in the North West and helps clients with employment compliance issues; recruitment and selection; HR strategy and operations; training; employee relations; reward; organisational development, and change management.

Shirley Barnes, Client Relationship Director, Dinamiks Ltd, welcomed People Dynamics as Dinamiks’ latest channel partner. “We are delighted to have Chris Munnery’s company on board and we look forward to working with him to grow our presence in the UK, with a focus in the North West and other markets.”

The newly enhanced Dinamiks ensures businesses and organisations comply with The Bribery Act 2010, which came into effect this year

December 9th 2011, Chichester. Dinamiks Ltd has announced that its newly enhanced cloud-based compliance and employee performance management tool, Dinamiks, is capable of handling all Bribery Act 2010 compliance requirements.

The act came into effect on July 1st 2011 and amends and reforms UK criminal law while providing a legal framework from which to combat bribery, or attempted bribery, in the UK and internationally.

Dinamiks allows a business to ensure that all staff and management – including the board and, optionally, suppliers and external partners – are aware of the requirements of the act, provided the business inputs basic user information.

The act covers business kickbacks, corrupt commissions and other forms of illicit business payments that are used secure business or government contracts. The act also prohibits payments made to obtain a business advantage, such as expediting goods through customs, attempting to receive a more favourable tax treatment and influencing legislation.

“We have deepened the compliance capabilities of Dinamiks so that it can be used in complete confidence for Bribery Act 2010 compliance,” says Shirley Barnes, Client Relationship Director, Dinamiks Ltd.

“Specifically, Dinamiks can be used to implement compliance awareness objectives and development processes – and create proper records and an audit trail.”

Under the new offence of failure to prevent bribery, businesses are criminally responsible for bribes on their behalf by “Associated Persons” whether they know about them or not. There is a defence, that the business has in place “Adequate Policies” to prevent bribery.

What can a business do? It must do something, because all businesses operating in the UK are covered by the act.

The law can be summarised into four key crimes (i) bribing (ii) receiving a bribe (iii) bribing a foreign public official (iv) failing to prevent bribery.

Barnes says that compliance awareness objectives and development processes form one of the planks of an “Adequate Policies” approach that fits all businesses:

*Drive the initiative from the top
*Conduct risk assessment for your business
*Develop a plan to close gaps
*Review existing related polices and create new ones
*Include agents and other service providers in the awareness
*Implement compliance awareness objectives and development processes
*Seek external support

“It is critical for businesses, government departments and other types of organisation to maintain proper books and records and ensure total transparency of payments made, corporate hospitality given and to whom,” says Barnes, “and in addition that on a predetermined calendar cycle, all employees read and understand all the policies associated with good practices, to prevent bribery.”
