In order for equally effective dissemination of our ethical values to all our employees and ensuring that they are passed on to the next generation, related regulations of our Ethical Rules were revised and declared to our employees in 2011. Ethical conduct rules and their application principles valid in Arçelik A.Ş and its subsidiaries abroad have been translated to 11 languages and spread throughout its other subsidiaries abroad who speak aforementioned languages. Along with that ethical values booklet has been converted to an e-learning form as of 2013 and embedded into the company orientation program in a manner that every new hire is provided with the content.
