For sustainable business success
Innovation is accepted as a key component of the current economy. Technological advances and concepts such as value added products and profit per kilo come to the forefront as important factors in terms of business success and sustainable economic development. The goal of sustainable innovation is to ensure high efficiency, which an organization seeks to achieve by innovating in all aspects of its functions from management and departments to operations, employees, customers and suppliers. This requires a seamless and structured management approach that starts with leadership at board level and senior management and connects the entire organization through technology investments and applications. And above all, sustainable innovation is not a destination to reach at the end of a race but an ongoing journey. Achieving a business goal does not mean the end of innovation because it is a process of discovery and continually recreating values that should have infused into the activities of all employees within the corporate culture. Innovation, as the most powerful and effective key to competing or achieving superiority in competitive conditions, is defined as the introduction of new products, services, processes, business models and ideas to create added value. In an environment where global competition is becoming increasingly fierce and fast, innovation is critical for businesses to survive.
Innovation-Focused Mentoring Program
Drawing from the importance of exports for Turkey’s economic development and that of innovative products
for exports, Turkish Exporters Union (TIM) carries out the Innovation-Focused Mentoring Program (InoSuit) to enhance the innovation strengths of Turkish businesses. The program, which is based on university-industry collaboration, aims to improve innovation management skills at member companies in a sustainable manner, build and strengthen the innovation management infrastructure, and design and implement innovation systems in line with the objectives, structure and needs of each business. InoSuit Mentor Ayhan Enşiçi, Ph.D. explained the details of the program, which Yıldız Entegre has been a part of since April 2019. At Yıldız Entegre, innovation activities are addressed in three key areas: increasing the innovation capacity of the organization, ensuring
the participation of all employees in innovation efforts, and integrating sustainable innovation systems into business procedures. With InoSuit, Yıldız Entegre works hard to achieve program objectives.
cities keep growing every day. Taking
the children who spend more and more time
indoors away to nature and offering them a day
of entertainment and adventure outdoors as they learn and have fun is becoming more and more important. Drawing from this need, İGSAŞ partnered with Ekoldrama Training Institute on the occasion
of the annual April 23rd Children’s Festival. At an event organized on April 21 at the Alikahya Primary School, the children (aged 6-10) of İGSAŞ employees gained awareness about the environment in which we live, and soil, the main interest of İGSAŞ. 16 children who participated in this day-long program spent a fun and educational day with activities that raised awareness and allowed them to be in nature. After the group was informed in the workshop, teams were formed and the leaders of each workshop organized concurrent activities at their own stations. Following the introduction ceremony, the participants were allowed to try, perform and experience the activities that aimed to teach specific skills and information, and to absorb the knowledge from the narrative.
