Corporate Social Responsibility Approach at ARGE Consulting

Corporate Social Responsibility has been at the core of ARGE‟s philosophy ever since its inception and is a core
value of its governance perspective.

As the first Turkish signatory, ARGE supports the Global Compact and integrates the 10 principles of the UN Global
Compact in its operations.

About ARGE Consulting
•   At the crossroads between Europe and Asia, Turkey is not only experiencing the highest GNP growth rates among
    OECD countries, but is also realizing the benefits of her privileged ties to European, Middle Eastern and Central
    Asian countries. As a matter of fact, Turkey is rated as one of the leading emerging markets in the world.
•   Realizing the growth potential for international business in the Turkish and related markets, ARGE was founded
    in 1991 to provide advisory services in the areas of business strategy development and implementation,
    business excellence methodologies, evaluation and development of investment projects, development of
    organizational infrastructure, change management, EU regulations and competition.

ARGE is committed
 To add value to the business of its clients,
 To provide the right team of experts for each project,
 To provide solutions that differentiate its clients in the marketplace, with special emphasis on
   implementation under local conditions,
 To retain its objectivity and independence of its views, and to protect client confidentiality.

    Sectoral expertise in areas such as energy, financial services, textiles, automotives, FMCG,
     manufacturing, distribution and construction is the fundamental strength of the company. ARGE also has
     a network of collaboration arrangements with organizations and affiliates in Turkey, Europe, and USA to bring
     together relevant necessary experience to its ongoing projects.
    ARGE‟s services target a major improvement in its clients’ business results. We believe that there are
     four main factors that affect business results. These are the business strategy and business excellence
     methodologies necessary to effectively implement the strategy, human resources, and technology management.
     Sustainable business results are achieved only when these four factors are considered as a whole and in a well -
     balanced way. Our approach is to try and balance all the four factors to suit the requirements of our clients in
     order to achieve the best, world-class results.
Corporate Social Responsibility is a part of ARGE’s vision.

CSR Approach at ARGE

•    ARGE„s consultants are recruited based on several factors some of which are unconventional for such firms. For
     example, ARGE prefers employees who are either current members of NGOs or who wish to undertake such
     social commitments outside of work to ensure that its employees are in tune with the social environment, as well
     as the business environment.
•    ARGE has pioneered the practice of corporate volunteerism by asking consultants to devote a full day of each
     working week for voluntary work in NGOs. This practice then has become a part of the performance evaluation of
     ARGE consultants, who were asked to report once every two weeks on how they allocated their time to volunteer
     activities. This practice is in line with ARGE‟s use of the Balanced Scorecard methodology to ensure that its
     strategies are applied throughout the organization. With this methodology, all of the employees‟ actions are
     observed with scorecards and timetables. Also, each ARGE consultant receives one month of training per year to
     keep abreast of the latest developments in his/her field of specialization.

ARGE’s Mission & Vision

•    Imagination is the key to creativity and leadership.
•    The key to success is achieving sustainable improvements in competitiveness.
ARGE believes in leading by example.
•    We demonstrate our corporate social responsibility, by encouraging all our consultants to devote a full day of each
     week for voluntary work in NGOs to improve the quality of life in our community with a local, national, and global
     perspective.

ARGE – Partner to the Global Compact and Caring For Climate Initiatives


UN Global Compact Principles are accepted as default norms at ARGE. The UN Global Compact Principles compose
a fundamental part of ARGE‟s vision, since ARGE is founded with the vision to strengthen corporate social
responsibility. Beyond ARGE‟s alignment with the ten UN Global Compact Principles, ARGE‟s activities are intended to
promote and develop the Corporate Social Responsibility concept and corporate governance principles in companies
and NGOs, throughout Turkey.

For this purpose, we have some keys for success;
•     For Value Creation – Utilize skills and/or systems developed to improve management quality by establishing
      focus in line with corporate values and mission.
•     For Impact – Cooperate with NGOs and develop their institutional capabilities for better acceptance and
      mobilization of larger resources. Projects conducted vis-à-vis NGOs are widely accepted rather than just being
      individual company actions.
•     For Sustainability – Apply good governance principles to CSR projects and NGOs.
•     Being creative and proactive in thinking.
•     Working with the parties that implement the Global Compact.
•     Working on a project or with a party if there exists a potential to add value.
•     Improve Recognition of Best Practices.

One of ARGE‟s major tools to promote corporate social responsibility is its partnership with
several NGOs that are very effective in their areas of operation in Turkey. As a result of its
vast amount of experience in the area of management consultancy, ARGE supports the
operations of NGOs in the areas of institution building, strategy formation and total
quality management. In this respect, in line with its mission and vision, ARGE aims to
promote corporate social responsibility among other organisations and integrate its
management consultancy experience within its projects in partnership with its network of
clients and other NGOs.
ARGE recognized as a leader for Corporate Social Responsibility



             – Granted ‘Responsible Entrepreneurship’ title by the European Commission

             –   ARGE Consulting has further become the only Turkish company which was recognized in the "Responsible
                 Entrepreneurship” report, prepared by the European Commission to recognize best practices by European SMEs.




             – European Parliament: Best Corporate Social Responsibility Project
             –   At the end of 2002, the European Parliament provided the setting for a Europe-wide recognition of the impact of
                 Developing Civil Society. Generation-Europe, a platform for the young leaders to interact with today‟s political and
                 economic leaders, has voted to include ARGE‟s efforts among the top three of Europe‟s best Corporate Social
                 Responsibility projects. Out of 25 competitors, all multi-billon dollar companies except ARGE, three projects were
                 recognized for their impact on “Shaping the Future”, one of which was ARGE.

                                         – ARGE CSR Case Study – the European Clearing House

                                         – ARGE‟s efforts in corporate social responsibility are also taught as a case study in
                                         many universities. The        case study, which was prepared by the Bosporus
                                         University, is also taught in universities all around the world through the European
                                         Case Clearing House. The case study embodies the context, strategy and methods in
                                         the design and implementation of the “Developing Civil Society” project.




             – CSR4U Best Practice: ARGE Consulting
             –   ARGE corporate social responsbility activities has been chosen as best practise by CSR4U – which is an initiative
                 Mainstreaming Corporate Social Responsibility among SME's run by the Irish Exporters Association/Dublin Euro
                 Info Centre, Fingal County Council and the County Enterprise Boards network. The purpose of the initiative is to
                 increase awareness of CSR among SMEs throughout Ireland. The delegation of the CSR4U initiative has done a
                 study trip to ARGE in May 2007. The visiting participants of the CSR4U project expressed that the key lesson of the
                 trip has been that using the knowledge and skills of an organisation‟s staff and applying these to voluntary projects
                 outside of that remit is probably the most effective way to implement CSR - as implemented by ARGE.

KALDER – Turkish Quality Association


Chairman of ARGE, started the National Quality Movement in Turkey in 1998 while he served as the
Chairman of the Turkish Quality Association (KalDer). National Quality Movement aimed to improve
the management effectiveness of private, public, and civil society institutions throughout Turkey by
promoting TQM philosophy. The National Quality Movement is probably one of the most effective
national programs to extend the use of the EFQM model and could provide an interesting example for
other countries as well. This project extended the implementation of the EFQM Excellence Model to all
walks of life, from industry to service sectors; from large institutions to very small organizations; from
private sector to public sector and even the NGOs. Also, a new Prime Category for NGO‟s, has been
established for the first time in Europe to promote utilization of good governance principles in the
NGOs. Within National Quality Movement, 40.000 people have been trained in country wide. Local
Quality Days are organized in order to deploy the National Quality Movement country wide.

                                        ARGE has provided project management and leadership supoort to our partner NGO -TESEV, in
                                        a project named „Good Governance‟. „Good Governance‟ project aims to strengthen governance at
                                        the local level by increasing the participatory role of civil society in local governing. The project aims
                                        to develop mechanisms to make civil society able to affect decision making processes. In this
                                        respect, the instruments used and the expected results could be summarized as follows:


                                        Digital development maps – that show the development disparities within cities to determine
                                        how local public services and resources could be allocated most efficiently to eliminate the

                                        public expenditure to determine the criteria that these expenditures are based on and contribute to an
                                        increased consciousness among local governing institutions to spend according to the needs of the
                                        local areas to contribute to the development of participatory strategic planning mechanisms,
                                        which is a legal condition with the new decree on local governance.
Principle 10: contd..   In this line, the aim is to increase the capacity of non-governmental organizations to
                        direct local governing bodies‟ public expenditure schemes. In this way, the
                        expected result is to create an efficient use of public resources especially to build the
                        necessary infrastructure in most needy areas and with a view to decrease poverty.
                        In this framework, the overall objective is increasing transparency, accountability,
                        sustainability in local governing procedures which we believe is a
                        direct effort against corruption.

                        With the ARGE publication, „Management in Voluntary Organisations‟,
                        methodology has been developed which determines the performance criteria in the
                        operations of voluntary organisations. In this way, the aim is to make the strategies,
                        objectives and activities of voluntary organisations more visible, more result-oriented
                        via the application of self-assessment procedures. ARGE aims to direct and support
                        Voluntary organisations with this methodology which as well provides the ground to
                        apply its wide-range of management consultancy experiences in voluntary
                        organisations. We believe that in this way, we would support the capacity-building of
                        voluntary organisations, which would make their operations more transparent,
                        effective, sustainable and accountable.
