We define our purpose of existence as developing environmentally friendly and sustainable insulation solutions that provide energy saving and comfort, without harming natural resources, taking into account the safety of life and property. We are a company that started with this aim and works with the motivation of efficient use of resources, climate change, construction of sustainable structures, energy saving, protecting the environment and improving the quality of life.”

In today's world, which is defined as the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world, companies are going through major changes in order to maintain their existence successfully… We can say that Izocam has undergone a great change during this period. In order to adapt to this change, we developed Izocam Attitudes in 2016; We use these five attitudes, which we define as being close to the customer, being agile, being innovative, acting like an entrepreneur, and creating an open and inclusive culture, in the design and execution of Human Resources policy and implementation tools. In the journey of change, the road is not always straight and comfortable, it is rough, muddy and difficult roads are passed. At this point, Izocam Attitudes became the guide for both our leaders and our employees.”

We have development activities to develop leaders who adopt modern management styles, listen, appreciate, teach in their failures, coach and move the employee forward. In our leadership development programs, we process the answers to questions such as 'What will be important for the Z generation, what should we do today to meet these expectations as leaders? What do we need in order for them to choose us and have a successful employee experience here?’”
