I believe this is a thing. These goals are built into the foundation of every project and we are very proud to have teams built from scratch to be recognized as industry leaders around the world.

Our other core belief is that our diverse and inclusive culture gives us an edge over our competitors when it comes to developing solutions for our customers. We have built a diversified and comprehensive company from the very beginning. Having people from a broader background enables a broader and more comprehensive approach while taking advantage of opportunities that benefit both customers, end users and people.

To achieve this, we knew we needed to create an environment where people could provide the best service possible while supporting them both inside and outside of their work. To do this, we take a people-first approach to our business, incorporating mentorship, providing each individual with their own training days and budget, and helping them steer career development in that direction.

CTGWhat is the proudest performance of the company in the last 12 months?

TF: The biggest achievement in the last 12 months is the speed with which it can double in size and scale even in the tough environment infested with the corona virus.

To ensure that our initiatives and approaches deliver the intended benefits, we encourage everyone to provide feedback on these (both informally and through employee feedback platforms). Hand).

CTG: What are you working on this year?

TF: Since the company was established in 2012, we have built a strong and loyal customer base with our ability to deliver high quality results and consistent value. It has been particularly successful this year and our focus has been on managing our growth well.

We have developed a wide range of best practice approaches and processes that enable us to successfully deliver rewarding work that has a significant impact on the country’s infrastructure and security. We want to leverage these valuable lessons and high quality delivery capabilities to add value to greater customer engagement in the UK and Europe.

The key to our growth is to maintain a “small company” environment based on our strong culture, high performance teams and collaborative approach. We believe this is the reason why we can continue to provide high value output to our customers as we grow and develop. We want to continue to build on these aspects, supported by our people-first approach, because that’s what makes us successful as a business.

CTGWhy are events like the UK IT Industry Awards so important to the IT industry?
