Toyota Turkey has won two awards in the ‘Best Employers of Turkey’ competition. The awards were given by the Great Place to Work Institute following its research which surveyed over 30 thousand employees from 80 companies in Turkey.

Toyota Turkey was also one of just 25 companies – and the only company in the automotive sector – identified as displaying a very high level of ‘corporate culture’ (eg: common values and shared company goals). Toyota Turkey was recognized among the top 18 companies in the 50-500 employee category as a ‘Best Employer in Turkey’. Moreover, 92 per cent of company’s employees stated that their work place provided a very safe environment; a fact which also contributed to Toyota Turkey winning a second award for ‘Employee Health and Work Safety’.

Speaking about the awards, Toyota Turkey CEO Ali Haydar Bozkurt commented that the awards were a strong reflection of Toyota’s own values of ‘respecting people and continuous improvement’.
