With this, Nityo Progression guarantees success to every project undertaken with a proven methodology and committed team. Apart from this, another challenge the company faced was in finding a team that could work together toward achieving a common objective. This resulted in stress and interpersonal conflicts. But, Nityo Progression overcame this challenge as well.
It developed a set of core value for every team member to follow. Passion, Responsible, Integrity, Committed, and Cohesive, and Open Mind are the values that every Nityo Progression employee follows.
