In terms of skill management, we aim to groom our employees for higher roles with career and leadership development plans in line with their abilities by identifying their prospective potential. In order to reach this goal, we support this process by coming up with backup plans and creating candidate pools. In accordance with these plans, we carry out projects to reveal the strengths and the areas of improvement of our employees, increase their awareness and prepare development plans. In order to ensure the sustainability and the continuity of skills development, we plan and implement internal development, coaching, and mentorship processes.
