Element 78 Solutions Ltd, developers of Carbon360 appraisal software, has confirmed its consultancy capabilities with its second bespoke solution for Dunnhumby. Following global implementation of Carbon360, Element78 assisted development of an annual employee survey and has now successfully partnered dunnhumby in production of an on-line performance management tool.
Set to be adopted internationally across dunnhumby’s offices in Europe, Americaand Asia the new product, branded i2, will enable over 1,200 employees to record their annual objectives. Using the performance management solution, employees will maintain a continuous development record in a ‘blog’ style format. An annual review is built into the system to rate, record and report overall performance.
Commenting on Element78’s consultancy contribution to the development of i2, which will be used by all staff members including receptionists and the company’s CEO, Francesca Peters, Global HR Director for dunnhumby said:
“Element78 has a rare ability to understand the culture and needs of the organisation which means that bespoke product development is an organic process. The team has a real capability of comprehending specific requirements and has an open approach that ensures timely delivery of projects.
“Our needs were translated to produce an excellent product which will give employees continuous access to a solution that frees them from the constraints of a paper-based performance management system.”
An additional benefit of the new i2 on-line performance management tool reported is its ability to pre-set measures to provide consistency of reporting – this has facilitated the introduction of a number of standard objectives across a seven grade system adopted by dunnhumby.
