INSPIRE

We believe that there cannot be an innovative and strong future in an environment without diversity, equality and inclusion.

We do not only raise awareness, but also inspire to act and to make a difference.

We put ”people" in the very heart of the age of change and transformation that we live in. “People” with whom we will create the future, is our greatest value.

Our aim is to establish a viable ecosystem based on the concepts of diversity, equality, innovation, dialogue, sharing, corporate volunteering, intrapreneurship focused on innovation and continuous development.

Our people are

our greatest asset

employees, are our greatest
asset for our target to

We expand our vision

with "Dialogue Conferences"

Since 2015, we reach
500 employees every month.

We organize a "Dialogue Conference" in Istanbul and in cities we operate every month on a regular basis around current social and cultural issues, to provide our employees knowledge, awareness and different perspectives in a continuous learning organization environment.

We create a corporate culture

based on innovation

We believe that the path to continuous
development is keeping the entrepreneurial
spirit alive.
  • We believe that in order to achieve a good idea, we must create an environment where a large number of ideas can be generated.
  • In order to transform “creativity” into “benefit”, we provide a natural innovation ecosystem in which employees can develop ideas, take responsibility and give meaning to life.
  • We create a corporate culture that makes innovation sustainable.
We support entrepreneurs
With Zorlu Ventures, "we lend ideas life and entrepreneurs a hand".

We support entrepreneurs who want to make their idea a reality, we invest in technologies that make life better. We mobilize all our assets to help ideas grow and become projects that benefit to society.

We are prepared to be partners of ideas to build a smart future in different fields ranging from health and education to internet of things and artificial intelligence.
Our goal for 2022: to ensure that ideas coming from in-house innovation and open innovation channels are increased by 50%.

We support

gender equality

We see Gender Equality
as a human right.
We know that, for an ecosystem to emerge where women can participate more and more equally to the workforce, transparency, executive commitment, support for women's leadership, an infrastructure that allows diversity and an inclusive mind-set are necessary.
We work to empower women in all areas of life.

We support gender equality in business, employment and earnings.

Vestel

Equal Opportunities Project

With the "Equal Opportunities Project" initiated by Vestel Electronics, we encourage individuals with hearing and speech disabilities to take their place in business life providing them various trainings. Within the scope of the Project which started with 11 employees in 2015, today, 170 individuals work on production lines designed for them.

We encourage

corporate volunteering

We encourage our employees to participate in voluntary activities.

We cooperate with the Private Sector Volunteers Association (ÖSGD), which aims to transform the competence and potential of human resources through volunteerism into social benefit.

By taking responsibility and making a positive impact on society, our employees do good for themselves and spread happiness.

We recommend an average of 8 hours/year volunteer work per employee and include them in our performance criteria.
