ODAŞ makes difference with its 'people and culture' focused approach

Operating in the energy, mining, and tourism sectors, ODAŞ supports a positive working environment through strategies implemented in the 'people and culture' domain. It adopts a human centred approach by engaging employees in effective projects related to social responsibility, and personal and professional development.

Today, companies differentiate themselves in the sector not only through their business activities but also through the policies they implement in human resources. The new dynamics in this field are changing towards a working environment where employees are valued and nurtured through social and cultural opportunities provided by organizations. ODAŞ, one of the leading company in the energy, mining, and tourism sectors, stands out among companies adapting to this change in human resources. Starting with the transformation of its traditional HR department into the People and Culture Department, ODAŞ has initiated a process of change within the organization.

FOCUS ON EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE

The department not only changes its name but also adopts an approach that centres around 'people' and 'work culture'. The company, which focuses on the development and experience of its employees, encourages the continuity of development by providing unlimited access to the ODAŞ Manager Development Programs and the Future Energy Transformation talent program, as well as providing unlimited access to the ODAŞ Development Platform with over 500 different contents.

Identifying the needs within ODAŞ Group Companies, the development areas of its employees are determined at the micro level, and specialized training programs are designed accordingly. For first-level managers at ODAŞ, a long-term journey is planned to enable them to utilise their managerial competencies effectively.

QUICK ADAPTATION

Despite being among the new players in the tourism sector with its new investment, ODAŞ rapidly adapts to this new industry by closely monitoring trends, thanks to the learning agility of its employees. ODAŞ redesigns its practices in the energy and mining sectors according to the dynamics of the tourism sector and employee expectations.

Furthermore, emphasizing the power of teamwork, internal events are organized for employees to discover the strength of collaboration. Projects like the "ODAŞ Good Life Movement," promoting a healthier lifestyle from different perspectives, and initiatives such as "Energetic Breaks" foster a positive work environment for employees through social, cultural, and well-being-focused activities. In addition, employees' motivation and loyalty to the company are increased through volunteerings programmes that encourage employees to generate social responsibility projects or participate in existing projects. Through the "ODAŞ People Volunteers" program, employees can develop social responsibility projects within the organization, engage with projects from non-governmental organizations, or create impact by sharing their ideas and needs through platforms like "I Have an Idea!".

DYNAMIC AND ENTREPRENEURIAL WORKING APPROACH

İnci Arıkan, Director of People and Culture, emphasises that the key to success lies in a dynamic, agile, and entrepreneurial work approach driven by teamwork. With the policies it implements, ODAŞ was entitled to be included in the 'Turkey's Best Employers-2024' list organised by the Great Place to Work Institute (GPTW) for the first time this year with its two companies. ODAŞ Headquarters and its subsidiary Suda Maden ranked first among "Turkey's Best Employers" in the survey where employees voted.

In 2023, ODAŞ Headquarters, Suda Maden, and Çan2 Thermal Power Plant earned the "Great Place to Work" certification. Additionally, ODAŞ was recognized on the "Best Workplaces for Women 2023" list by GPTW for its policies targeting women employees.

Arıkan said, "These evaluations are crucial in demonstrating that our employee experience policies at ODAŞ, aligned with our values and corporate competencies, are effectively implemented. We strive to actively use feedback tools as employee needs can vary over time. In line with our competency of 'Commitment to Development,' we continuously enhance and implement people and cultural initiatives, recognizing that employee-focused policies are essential for our growth. ODAŞ will persistently work on innovative projects that make a difference in the people and cultural domain in the upcoming periods.
