Since 2006, For My Country platform is active as a social responsibility initiative to mobilize Koç Group’s vast network of employees, suppliers and distributors around different fields of sustainable development. The focus area of the platform changes every three years. Currently the motto is “For My Country: I Design the Future”. We concentrate our efforts to understand the complex relationship between digital transformation, innovation and future talent.
In a world of fast-paced change, technology is redefining the way we live and the way we do business. The adaptation and transformation are key issues in order to sustain the business and further inspire communities during this transition. We, therefore, focus our community investments on discovering how technology is shaping and changing our lives and how we can transform the way we do business accordingly. In order to empower individuals to rethink their relationships with technology for a better future, Koç Group has partnered with Deloitte Digital to develop the content of the programme and the Community Volunteers Foundation to reach a wider community.
The program offers several tools for individuals to explore their perception of the future and their relationship with technology. The tools are designed as different stages of progress. In 2019, we launched the program in our Group companies and trainings were conducted by the volunteers within the company.
- Future compass: It is an online self-assessment tool that helps individuals to define their personal roadmap in this changing environment. With a 20-minute experience, individuals can explore their perception on shaping future as well as their relationship with technology.
- Designing the Future Sessions: These are 1-hour sessions delivered by Koç Group volunteers. The aim of the session is to discuss how rapid change results in uncertainty, how technology is widely used and accessible, how technology is solving complex issues at scale and what each of us can do to shape our futures.
