The Way We Work
Organizational StructureInstead of an organizational structure based on hierarchy, we established a multidimensional organization that allows us to communicate rapidly and clearly. Our organizational structure is a nested matrix: Teams (consisting of employees with various specializations) and Departments (consisting of employees with similar specializations). This way, a marketing specialist and an application and service developer can work on the same project as a team. On the other hand, the application and service developers are in the same department to continue their methodological and personal development. Due to the nature of our organizational structure and the products/solutions we offer, our tasks are dependant on each other, and we need to work together as a team most of the day. Therefore, all team members must communicate clearly and complete the assigned tasks on time.
Working Hours and Annual Leaves
We perform efficiently during working hours instead of exhausting for long hours, and in the evenings, we take time for ourselves and our family.We have created an original working order and organizational structure in line with our efficiency and quality policy. Kartaca employees can arrange their weekly schedule to allocate 40 hours of work per week and start working between 08:00 and 10:00 on weekdays. Everyone can handle their private matters during the day by planning with their team. The fingerprint reading system monitors office entry and exit times and calculates our daily working time. Although it may seem like an unusual system at first, it may be more advantageous for people who do not habitually take long breaks during the day compared to the fixed entry hours. For example, an employee who arrives at 08:00 in the morning and completes the daily working time can leave the office at 16:00.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adopted a hybrid working model where we can work from home on some days and from the office on others. Additionally, we have changed the earliest time to start the workday to 07:00 am.
As much as we value hard work, we also care about resting and refreshing.Each employee who has completed one year in Kartaca is entitled to 15 working days (three full weeks) of annual leave. During the days between public holidays and weekends (not exceeding five days a year), we are deemed to be on annual leave as a company. These days are announced in writing to the whole company at the beginning of the year.
Training and Self Development
Guidance SystemA guide is assigned to each new employee in Kartaca. That guide is responsible for accelerating the adaptation process and supporting that employee in Kartaca.
Dedicated Learning and Development Budget for EveryoneWe need to follow the constantly changing technology closely for continuous progress. We know that the more our employees make progress, the more our company can go forward. Therefore, we encourage our employees to participate in external trainings. To support this, we accumulate a learning and development budget for each employee, in proportion to the time they work with us. Everyone can use their budgets to participate in various forms of training as they wish. In cases where the learning and development budget is insufficient, they may request credits.
A Constantly Enriching LibraryWith the monthly budget allocated independently of the training, we enrich the company library by supplying new books and magazines requested by our employees in line with their roles, needs, and interests. Currently, the Kartaca library has more than 300 books that can be borrowed by the employees at any time.
Monthly ActivitiesEvery month, our HR department organizes activities with various concepts so that we have the opportunity to spend time together as a team and have fun outside the office. Participation is optional. Some of the activities we have participated in so far; laser tag, theater, cinema, pizza workshop, charcoal drawing workshop, rhythm workshop, basketball game, go-kart, escape game, picnic, museum and exhibition visit, bowling.
