In Iraq, a contract’s success is dependent upon a sensible and considered engagement with local, indigenous people. The engagement must be honest and fair, and it must ensure that people are treated with respect at all times. From this baseline, the project can be structured and delivered. Thereafter the standard principles of client protection and safety are applied to all activities, and delivered with sensitivity to the local security conditions, and in turn with a constant willingness to be responsive and innovative in order to mitigate threats. Combined with full accountability, operational visibility, regular reporting, face-to-face meetings, and a very real duty of care, professionalism and the constant pursuit of excellence, Groupe Tara S.A. ensures clients feel important, cared for, and a priority.
