Facing the Challenges Head-on

After its inception, ICONS had to tackle a lot of challenges to get the business as a startup when the existing engineering businesses usually looked at the types of services provided by an individual or company as a whole. However, as individuals with the establishment of trust, knowledge and commitment to deliver quality service, ICONS convinced some entities to provide the opportunity to serve. This gave a kick-start to its foundation and ideology on which the company established itself and is growing.

Another major challenge of the company was to retain young talent as well as getting senior professionals in individual technical subjects. However, the Directors’ approach, as well as their network capability, made it possible. This has resulted in ICONS USP where a blend of senior professionals and young talent collaborate to deliver quality services at an optimum cost.
