In addition, we are announcing open positions in our Open Positions platform, which is only accessible by Anadolu Group employees. When selecting, we are giving the first priority to our group employees. So, the employees may choose their path by applying to open positions, while we are planning their career as well.
I did not choose any department when I applied to Anadolu Group. I first started to work in our tourism company, Efestur, as Operations Specialist. After completing the military service, I continued to work in Holding Human Resources department. I worked in Honda Otomobilcilik A.Ž. for six years during the transition to production and after. I took the responsibility for Anadolu Efes Headquarter Human Resources department. I now continue to my duty as Anadolu Endüstri Holding Human Resources President.
Our group adopts creativity and innovation culture for 30 years but we decided last year to gather the ideas in a pool and we have implemented bi-fikir (an idea). So far, our employees have sent more than 3.000 ideas. We have rapidly implemented 119 bi-fikir and we saved millions of Turkish lira thanks to these ideas.
We offer a safe and happy working environment to our employees who started to work in our companies. We are aware that these two needs are the main expectations for young people from Y generation. We offer many career possibilities to our employees by using the advantage of having many companies in different sectors and in different locations. We support the professional and personal development of our employees by various training and development programs. Furthermore, Anadolu Group culture embraces the ideas of its colleagues. Thanks to our works focused on innovation within the group, our employees have the possibility to declare their development ideas about either their individual jobs or teamwork.
