Hilmi Uytun - General Manager
“Our corporate stance on protecting employee rights in our value system and all of our practices that reflect it is welcomed by our employees. Having a solution-oriented business structure that allows for quick action contributes to the development of our employees. Our projects to improve our human resources practices continue. First of all, we digitize our performance management system. This year, we will open our dashboards and make performance more visible. We are considering making our work-from-home practice permanent for some of our departments. We have a project to create a new resting area for our employees. We will organize our garden behind our head office as a resting and alternative work area for our employees.”
