Selim Şankaya, who spoke at the opening, stated that the Jade Academy initiative they implemented reflects the “People First” principle that Jade Textile has adopted since its establishment in Egypt. Şankaya stated that they attach great importance to the human resources within the company and their development and said that the word of him constitutes our one of the main philosophies by specifying that “in-house trainings that will help our employees to achieve their goals in their business and social lives are extremely valuable. The contribution of the late Şükrü Şankaya, the founder of Yeşim, to the economy is very important. But what is more important than that is our contribution to education. Because our contribution to education is much more important and valuable not only for our present but also for our future.”
Şankaya continued like this: “In line with the vision and mission of our group, our social responsibility approach at Jade Academy includes providing quality training and adequate awareness for company goals. Investing in the training of employees helps their intellectual development and increases their productivity, financial well-being and productivity. These steps help Jade Textile to achieve its goals and develop a positive working environment that helps employees to create a sense of belonging and cooperation.”
