In Anadolu Group, we manage our human resources with the awareness that we now need to be a strong and agile organization, keep highly skilled people who will help us reach our goals within our organization and plan suitable career paths for each of them at the right time. From our point of view, having talented employees within our organization is one of the important factors that would lead us to successful results. For this reason, deciding on their career paths and planning their careers are of great importance for our and our employees development in order for our employees from every level to be more successful at jobs that require experience, knowledge and leadership for years to come. With this perspective, we primarily prefer internal transfers to strengthen and sustain our corporate culture and values. Thanks to Organizational Development Meetings (OGT) process that are held systematically in the group, we review career planning and backup planning for our employees from every level at the company, the sector, and group management, we define critical roles and employees with high potential.

In the scope of OGT, internal transfers, backup and transfers in the group are planned for employees that need different responsibility and experiences in order to continue to develop themselves in Anadolu Group. We are offering opportunities to our employees to work in different areas and/or locations in which we are operating, with this application. It is an ongoing process in our companies for employees to change job or to be promoted. Approximately 2.500 employees in our group changed their job, level, company, sector or location for last 10 years between in our group of companies.
As Anadolu Group, we are preferring internal transfer in career planning on a large scale, because we would like to give the priority to our employees to advance in their career according to their performance since the day they joined our group. Thanks to this application, our organization is competent enough to adapt itself to challenging factors that are each day harder to surmount, to achieve our groups' goals and certainly to deliver successful business results. This strategy has a positive impact both on organization and business results.
We are encouraging internal transfer operations in the group of companies with 'AG Open Positions' platform, other than Organizational Development Meetings where the career and backup plans are made. Our companies in the Group evaluate primarily the applications inside the group for open positions/jobs. We announce open positions/jobs to every employee by e-mail. The candidates in the group apply on the platform at www.agacikisler.anadolukariyerim.com, which is only accessible by our employees. Human Resources department of related companies evaluate all the applications.
With this application, we strive to;
. increase transparency and communication in the group/company,
. support the employees to take initiative about their career,
. use more efficiently the human resource (skills and competencies) inside the group,
. strengthen commitment to organization and motivation,
. promote feedback culture and management.
