Everyone who works at the company, are considered as equal regardless of their race, language, creed, age, gender, nationality, disability, and other legally protected categories without discrimination.

Any behavior that is unwanted, unwelcomed and not responded by the addressee means to constitute harassment.

Any request that is annoying or including a sexual compromise or any behavior that will lead to a feeling of threat and unwelcomed by the other person is harassment.

All kinds of aggressive and cynical behavior directed to the disability of an employee with a physical incapacity are also harassment. All employees display consideration in their behavior to each other.

In this context, all employees show the necessary attention in their behavior toward each other.

Preventing Unwanted Behavior in the Workplace

Use of Status Power in the Workplace

Misuse of status power may be caused by either personal power of the individual (Title, physical, personal, age) or collective power (power derived from numerical superiority). Such behavior is named as inacceptable by the Company.

Reasonable and logical errors made by the employee to be treated by an appropriate and constructive manner, studies and appraisals for employee improvement, etc. are examples of correct use of status power.

Harassment, Target Point, Select as Victim

Every one of us deserves respect and has human pride. Any behavior or action that will violate this, especially any kind of sexual harassment, is unacceptable.

Avoid behavior and rumors that will cause an employee to feel isolated; he should not be made a target point, harassing behavior should be avoided that would create psychological anxiety. An example to this may be systematic and planned behavior to wean, degrade the performance of a person, or to cause a person to resign. (E.g. criticism of an employee's private life in public, constant interruption of his/her word, constantly being scolded in front of other employees, ignorance of his/her success, etc.)

7D takes all measures to prevent such behavior and expect the same sensitivity from all employees.

Relations with the Environment

It is vital to protect the world we live in. As 7D we are aware of the importance of a healthy and clean environment. We expect our employees to fully implement health, safety and environmental measures. We pay great attention to plan, construct and manage workspaces that protect our employees and our existing resources. This care also covers the use of protective equipment, attainment of required precautions, thus creating a safe working environment.


Conformity to Business Ethics

The employees should take all necessary measures to avoid breach of these rules.

In case they observe infringement of rules the employees should immediately inform their manager, if not Director of Administrative Affairs or Human Relations Manager. To be available for the employers and to answer their questions, provide training and to give consulting is one of our 7D top management’s goals. Managers will compel all opportunities to provide this support.

Ethics Policy is reviewed every year considering technological innovations, global and environmental conditions, company dynamics and recommendations from our valued employees.

It is rather difficult how above mentioned organizational principles will apply to all individual cases we may face in the future. So we can ask ourselves;

Am I doing the right thing to do?
Is what I do suitable to community values?
Will what I do protect my Company image?

Please do not forget that we are a family. We are an influential family mentioned along with our title, with our generated and shared moral values and having strong belief in love and respect between old and young from the very beginning. Our title is one of the most valuable assets of this family. We are all responsible to protect and cherish this asset.

With our cordial regards
