Surpassing the Challenges
Vertex was bootstrapped and was incepted in 2016 and has since then has been a prime independent entity. Struggle in the broad market globe has been one of the team’s primary problems, especially competition for ‘price value of items and services.’ Several aspects might readily impact a customer’s final decision. However, the pricing component has always piqued the interest of purchasers and is largely responsible for changes in corporate strategies and models.
And it is an organization where the majority of its attention is on driving remarkable advancements in goods and services and periodically enhancing the quality of work. Vertex has always put forward impeccable services to clients with premium solutions at cost-cutting prices. “I think our pristine services and value for our clients make us unique and differentiate us from all other existing companies and is the key reason for our long-standing success,” says Mr. Arora.
Overcoming the Difficulties
The year 2020 will go down in history as a watershed year. The globe has been shaken by a worldwide pandemic and has been subjected to significant disruption. However, technology adds a layer of resilience to firms by making the abrupt change in operational patterns less disruptive.
“I feel that the new era of employment has increased opportunities for handicapped individuals,” expresses Mr. Arora. As a result of the pandemic, the Work from Home concept has seen widespread adoption in various industries. It has opened the door for organizations to create or future-proof an inclusive workplace for individuals with impairments. In contrast, disabled persons should have an equal chance to work and make a living.
Having said that, Vertex’s ‘Vertex Digital Academy’ provides a platform for such specially-abled workers to upskill themselves for the changing business world. The school also provides internship opportunities so that students may gain corporate experience before entering the workforce.
Words from the Commander
“Many people believe that to be creative, you must plan, schedule, and brainstorm. This is not my opinion. I believe that innovation cannot take place in a vacuum. Having worked in the sector for over two decades, I can attest to the fact that innovation is deeply ingrained in our DNA,” states Mr. Arora.
“Our employees are a non-obvious reason for our ongoing innovation. We hire exceptional talent that offers out-of-the-box thinking and agility, and then we establish an atmosphere that empowers them with growing space,” adds Mr. Arora.
“We have been recognised as the Best Place to Work because of our equally influential culture. It fosters a flexible environment that fosters opinions and curiosity that allows each person to drive their team as if it were their own company powering their growth, which is yet another fact to our business growth,” expresses Mr. Arora.
Vertex Group’s catchphrase is ‘innovate, design, and transform’ in order to become pliable and vulnerable to new difficulties and then to exceed those obstacles with flair and flamboyance.
Growth is an essential component for everyone at Vertex; it entails providing constant deliverables to customers through a continual process in which both employees and employers work together to create a favourable environment.
