Aras Kargo Vice President of Human Resources Gülçin Poyraz states that they are pleased to establish a Family School in Aras Academy and said, “We laid the foundations of Aras Academy back in 2009. 5400 of our employees were trained in Aras Academy across Turkey in such a short time. We got the opportunity to get together with the families of our employees during Aras Academy graduation ceremonies and we were inspired by the spark on their eyes while our employees were throwing graduation caps in the air. Based on the fact that Aras Kargo is a huge family, we decided to organize trainings for our employees’ families. First of all, we prepared a survey for our personnel at the Transfer Center and asked which trainings their families would need. In line with their answers, we planned our training program together with the valuable academicians.” Pointing out that they are focused on the happiness of all of their shareholders, Gülçin Poyraz indicated, “Happiness and satisfaction of our shareholders and those of our employees are equally important to us. We aimed to have highly engaged employees and this is where we are. Now, spouses of Aras Kargo employees will roll up their sleeves to maintain a happy family life. They will attend many seminars including communication to their spouses and children’s development. We target 1000 women with our seminars by the end of this year.”
