The Investment

In an increasingly competitive job market, employers are seeking new ways of improving employee attraction and retention.

Furthermore, many employers are investing in new ways to improve the overall health of their employees which increases productivity and lowers employee insurance benefit costs. Dialogue is at the nexus of these powerful trends.

Dialogue is an easy to use mobile and desktop application through which employees can quickly chat with healthcare professionals before ever stepping foot in a clinic or hospital. Employers offer Dialogue as part of their Employee Benefit Plan. Their employees and their families can use it at no cost to them. No more waiting for hours at the clinic for minor health issues, no lost time at work. Dialogue has also proven to substantially increase employee satisfaction and decrease absenteeism.

Furthermore, we’d known Cherif Habib, CEO of Dialogue, for many years prior to his co-founding the company.
