People join us because we have attracted and retained some of the brightest, talented and experienced people in the industry. Employees work in a peer group that challenges, motivates, inspires, and stretches the imagination – helping individuals to continue to grow and learn in their chosen field. Working in such an innovative environment means the opportunity to continue to learn happens on a daily basis. In parallel, we have a range of specific learning and development initiatives, designed to enable all to develop to their full potential.
Dialog is committed to the training and development of all employees at all levels of the organisation. Our vision is to develop a positive learning culture which fully supports the development of the individual and the growth of the business. We have a global learning and development strategy which has been written in order to support both the development of the organisation and the individuals within it. Everyone within the organisation has the opportunity to participate in a variety of career advancing training and development programmes. For our students and graduates, we also have a development program specifically designed to provide both technical involvement and mentoring to our employees at the start of their careers.
View the chart below to see how the budget for employee expenditure has increased from 2009-2012:
In recent years, we’ve been implementing a programme of growth and investment in many of our locations, expanding facilities and space where we can. When we’ve expanded or refurbished a site, we’ve incorporated many employee suggestions to create an environment that both meets our business needs and is a pleasant place in which to work.
Dialog is committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of its employees. Employees and their families are eligible to participate in non-contributory medical plans where local culture and practice supports this. Additionally we currently offer a selection of ‘well-being’ initiatives across a variety of our locations including on site, free flu vaccination programme, cycle to work scheme and an on-site gym.
Furthermore a key element of our 2012 employee engagement plans is to define and implement further local initiatives that build upon the current health and wellbeing programmes in place and support the needs of our employees.
