01 Apr 2018 Investment in Dynamic People
New Human Resources Manager Appointed
Dynamic EMS, leading UK Electronics Manufacturing Service provider (EMS), is pleased to announce the appointment of Victoria Bonnar, as Human Resources Manager.
Ms. Bonnar joins Dynamic EMS from global Norwegian seafood company Marine Harvest, where she spent over three years encouraging and supporting the growth of the organisation from 27 people, to over 700.
Over the past 10 years, Ms. Bonnar has held a number of HR positions and has led many strategic initiatives, one being the formation of an ‘Academy for Recruitment’, which is of particular interest to Dynamic EMS, as the company is currently taking several steps to help, educate and advise the electronics manufacturing industry on how to cope with the impending skills gap shortage.
Ms. Bonnar has played an instrumental part in restructuring four organisations and various business units within these operations.
On her appointment, Ms. Bonnar stated: “From the initial interview, through to my appointment, I was able to feel the positive culture that exists within Dynamic EMS. Many people have referred to the company as having a paternalistic approach, and as an HR manager, this is attractive. The company is dedicated to their customers, but not to the detriment of their team. The company’s management has built tools and processes to monitor the team’s health and wellbeing, as well as nurturing professional relationships. Some of our ‘Dynamic People’ have been with us for over forty years! Dynamic EMS also has a solid brand reputation within the local community, which again encourages employee morale, as everyone has a sense of pride being a Dynamic team member.”
John Dignan, Managing Director, commented: “I am delighted that Victoria is joining Dynamic EMS. We believe that an investment in ongoing staff growth and development is central to our success, and I am sure that Victoria’s experience will help us to achieve our short and long-term business goals. Our previous HR Manager, Veronica Allan, retired in October 2017, but she has been instrumental in Victoria’s onboarding experience and bringing her up-to-speed on our business infrastructure. Ms. Allan was much loved within Dynamic EMS, and whilst we are sad to see her departure after eight years of dedicated service and loyalty, we are excited to welcome Victoria.”
Ms. Bonnar added: “This is an exciting time to be joining Dynamic EMS. The company has just rebranded itself as being more than simply EMS, but a complete supply chain partner to their original equipment manufacturing (OEM) customers. Employee engagement during this transition period is crucial.
Evidence suggests that employee engagement has a positive and significant effect on organisations. Companies with high employee engagement have been found to impact positively on productivity, profitability, customer satisfaction, innovation, staff retention, efficiency and health and safety performance. This is what we want to drive and witness within Dynamic EMS, after all, this is what will continue to allow us to offer a flexible approach to scale, as per our customers electronics manufacturing forecast.
As a learning organisation, our ability to change is only attainable by ensuring that we equip our team with the ability to achieve their full potential, and I look forward to working with our Dynamic People to drive our key initiatives forward.”
Ms. Bonnar holds a 2:1 degree in Business Management from Abertay University.
