Visma acquires Dialog, a Dutch provider of a performance and talent management platform that allows organisations to increase ownership among their employees, increase engagement and improve performance.
Dialog was founded in 2012 with the aim of radically renewing the annual HR cycle. Dialog supports employees in making a personal plan. Employees use this plan throughout the year when, for example, they ask for feedback about their performance from colleagues and customers. The aim is to maintain a continuous dialogue, supporting organisations in getting the most out of their people.
More than a hundred organisations, including NS Stations, Spar and the KNVB, use Dialog to support their employees and to stimulate 'a good conversation'. Dialog integrates with all known HR systems, in order to prevent duplicate administrations.
“We see becoming part of Visma as a great opportunity to enter new markets,” says Stefan Op de Woerd, co-founder of Dialog. “In many organisations, a lot of potential is lost due to traditional management methods. Our ambition is to support companies to get the best out of their people with the help of a user-friendly online platform. Visma gives companies the freedom to do business in order to increase their business success and offers support when needed. That really appeals to us.”
“We find ourselves in a historically tight labour market where retaining and captivating talent in almost every company is a strategic priority,” says John Reynders, Area Director Benelux. “Dialog enables organisations to realise this priority with a modern, user-friendly and flexible platform. We are happy and proud that Dialog wants to continue its success as part of the Visma family. Dialog is a valuable addition to our portfolio of HR software applications and I expect that we can make many of our customers happy with this added value.”
Dialog continues its business activities as an independent company within the Visma group. Dialog will therefore continue to work with all providers of HR packages. In addition, it will collaborate with other Visma companies.
