Yet more awards for Garanti Bank.
Garanti the first Turkish company to be awarded “Silver” status by “Investors in People”
In 2005 Garanti became the first Turkish company whose human resources practices were awarded certification for compliance with Investors in People (IIP) standards, the world’s only recognized human resources quality standard. As a result of an assessment conducted in late 2008, our certification was renewed.
In 2009, IIP introduced a new program aimed at recognizing and awarding firms whose performance in human resources practices surpassed the standard and added “Gold”, “Silver”, and “Bronze” classifications to its existing certification process. Under this new ranking system, GarantiBank’s human resources practices were awarded “Silver” certification, an honor bestowed on only 1% of the approximately 35,000 concerns that have received IIP certification worldwide.
Concerning the award, GarantiBank’s assistant general manager for human resources Gökhan Erün said “When we first received IIP certification in 2005, we had 8,500 people; today that number has topped 16,000. While pursuing rapid growth as a bank, we have also been giving the utmost importance to upholding the standards that we apply in our human resources practices as well. That is why we are so very proud that our human resources practices have been ranked above world standards even though we have been growing so fast. Believing that our human resources are our most important asset, we shall continue to improve ourselves in this area in the future as well. We congratulate all our employees for they are the true authors of this success. I sincerely believe that by working together we will go on to even greater successes.
