Tekfen's 15th Seniority Award Ceremony

Tekfen held its fifteenth Seniority Award Ceremony.

Seniority Award Ceremonies, held in İstanbul, Adana and at overses' construction sites in order to honour long-standing employees are a much awaited tradition at Tekfen. This year's events, 15th in a row since the first of their kind in 2004, witnessed as many as 285 Tekfen employees receive their awards accompanied by their colleagues and family members. With the addition of this year's recipients, a total of 3877 employees have earned the right to their Seniority Award. These figures reveal that two out of every five people in Tekfen's total workforce of 20,000 have served with the company for at least ten years.

Speaking at the ceremony, Cahit Oklap (President, Tekfen Group Companies) said that the secret of Tekfen's success was its ability to "grow without growing old". "People are a company's most valuable asset," he said. "In our eyes, every one of the 20,000 people who make up our workforce is an individual who adds value to our company. We at Tekfen are just as open to the new as we are mindful of our traditions. This is because achieving sustainability is dependent on being able to pass on our accumulated experience to future generations, and on sharing our experience with them."
