The Employee Loyalty and Satisfaction Research and Corporate Culture and Organizational Climate Research are a study that is conducted with a systematic method and approach and is structured to reveal any possible factors that impede and/or increase the workforce’s contentment and job satisfaction; the attitudes and value judgments pertaining to work; and the corporate culture. This research is conducted to contribute to the “development” of management and the organization, and strategies, aims, roles, talents, policies, and procedures (but not individuals) are evaluated in the research.

The results uncovered by the research help determine the necessary steps and priorities to increase employees’ job satisfaction, foster loyalty to the Company (corporate belongingness), and boost motivation levels. Research results also aid in creating development plans and putting them into operation.
