'We are climbing the stairs of success with firm steps'

Having stated to feel the right proud of being awarded in 4 categories in Best Business Awards, İkram Göktaş, the General Manager of Vakıf Katılım, said that "Even though we are one of the youngest members of our industry, we are climbing the stairs of success with firm steps. The fact that we have taken a strong stance during the pandemic period, have focused on the health of our employees, and not compromised on anything from promotion to training, from personal communication to motivation practices has rendered us even stronger. While this process, which we turned into an opportunity, has accelerated our digitalization journey, it has also allowed many of our processes to be brought to the online platforms and even enabled all our employees to be involved in it, just like the HeRobot project. It is another source of pride and joy for us to be rewarded for our work, which we have brought into existence with great sensitivity. I would like to thank all my colleagues who have put their efforts in obtaining these awards.” Mr. Göktaş further stated that they would realize reference projects and Vakıf Katılım would be mentioned most often in 2021 in both national and international arenas.
