CAREER STORIES / (pp. 46-47)
Doing what you love brings success
L oving what you do is undoubtedly essential for a successful career. Regularly refreshing your knowledge, creating brand new projects and training future generations are some of the proofs
that show how much a job is loved. Tayfun Yamak, Electrical Foreman at İGSAŞ, emphasizes the importance of passing down experiences to the next generations, “Thanks to the established friendships across the entire plant, I can easily communicate with all my colleagues. In İGSAŞ culture, everyone is open to sharing information. I follow this philosophy and make sure that I share the experiences I gained throughout my career with my colleagues. My colleagues and I also exchange ideas about the tasks at hand. I believe this contributes to our business, my colleagues and my personal development.” Şerafettin Saim, Environmental Officer at Yıldız Entegre, shares his thoughts on how loving what you do brings success, “We at the Environment Division launched the ‘Material Flow Management in Wood Industry Production and Yıldız Entegre Applications’ project back in 2015. The project that we continuously evolve includes multiple sub-projects. The most important feature of this project is the fact that it can be easily integrated and implemented into not one but all industries and processes. It therefore proves itself as the right project for Yıldızlar Yatırım Holding, which operates in multiple industries. The project, developed around the theme
of ‘When there is waste, there is a problem,’ offers complementary solutions. Our project won first prize at the Kocaeli Chamber of Industry Şahabettin Bilgisu Wood and Wood Products Industry Award in 2017,
and the Special Jury Award by the Istanbul Chamber of Industry for the Large Enterprises Environment Friendly Application Project in 2018. Receiving a Commendation from the Board of Directors was also very meaningful for me.” Murat Çaklılı, Maintenance Manager at Yıldız Demir Çelik, points out the importance of loving what you do and sharing what you know, “I learn a lot from all my colleagues as I try to treat them equally and pass on what I know. Yıldız Demir Çelik is a young company like its employees, and offers the current and prospective employees opportunities to plan their careers and expand their experiences for peak performance.”
HOBBY / (pp. 48-49)
Nature as a source of
editation is based on the idea of remembering that all living
things are one with nature and that oneness can only be achieved as a whole. Meditating provides an opportunity to observe one’s thoughts during a walk in nature, yoga or simply sitting in silence. The fresh air or the sounds of nature away from any artificial noise are enough to stretch the body. This means that being in nature is a therapy in and of itself. Zehra Sağlam, a Training and Development Specialist at Yıldız Akademi, exercises this philosophy as an integral part of her life. Sağlam explains the importance of yoga, meditation and nature walks, “The most positive effect of this trio on business life is that it enables us to bring being neutral and calm by maintaining balance into our lives. Maintaining balance with our mind and soul stripped away from prejudices, assumptions, mind readings, ego, stress and burnouts... The more you train your mind and remain in balance in your business life, the more yoga, meditation and nature will help you. Experiences will just be incidences and filtered through your
mind while your perspective will expand and return to you in the form of objective, positive and healthy decisions and behaviors. This is how we can easily manage our business lives, free of the burdens of good and evil, right and wrong.” She recommends, “If you decide to go outdoors and be one with nature, please do it only for yourself. Let go of everything, let it be just about you and nature in that moment. Take note of your surroundings, just be there, with yourself and with nature in that moment.”
