Through our business activity, we create value for a wide range of stakeholders

Our most important social impact is the generation of economic value, our contribution to the advancement of technological innovation and the enhancement of local skills pools.

Enhancing the skills pool

We have a number of programmes within schools, colleges and universities to attract the best and brightest talent to Dialog.

We want to encourage young people into electronics to ensure the future pipeline for the wider engineering industry so we sponsor and mentor students at leading technical colleges and universities. We are also supporters of women in STEM initiatives.
