New employment programs are crucial for reverse brain drain
Stating that they have employed 256 people in the last 3 years through the new employment programs, M. Bülent Özçengel continued: “Collaborating with universities and various organizations, we contribute to the professional development of young people with the internship opportunities we offer. Our number of employees has increased by 33% in the last 3 years. Of this number, 256 people joined us through new employment programs. It makes us very happy to see these rates increase every year. We believe that development is a never-ending journey, and we always support our employees in this regard. We also think that it is vital to create new employment programs for reverse brain drain. As Softtech, we will continue to support young people every year to achieve this goal.”
