What Your Technical Resource Manager 
Can Do for You

At azad technology partners the critical component in the success of the clients' projects, and subsequently, the company's success, is the successful employee. This is why we are committed to providing the necessary resources and support to ensure employee success and professional development. At azad, the best and most reliable resource available to you is your Technical Resource Manager.

The relationship between Technical Resource Managers (TRM) and azad  employees has been instrumental in employee retention, redeployment, and ultimately, a twenty-five year track record of successfully completing clients' projects. This has been achieved through consistent, transparent, and open communication. As an azad employee, your TRM is a valuable resource to guide you through all aspects of your professional career. Your TRM is available to provide coaching and guidance on current challenges on a project, develop strategies for conflict resolution, provide support for personal hardships faced, as well as to develop successful career tracks for current and prospective employment opportunities. Discussing your career goals as well as any challenges encountered on a project promptly and openly with your TRM is an essential element to your continued success.

azad's Technical Resource Managers are always available to you as  you are their highest priority!
