Jones Lang LaSalle Turkey win ETIKA 2012 award by EDMER (Ethic Values Association)

EDMER (Ethical Values Association) have rewarded Jones Lang LaSalle Turkey for promoting ethical awareness and behaviour across their local practices.


​EDMER (Ethical Values Association) have rewarded Jones Lang LaSalle Turkey for promoting ethical awareness and behaviour across their local practices in Turkey, by awarding the business an ETIKA 2012 Turkey Ethics Award. 

Jones Lang LaSalle Turkey Country Chairman Avi Alkaş said: "Promoting positive ethical behaviour is one of the most significant parts of our company culture. The clear value we place on business ethics enables us to gain the trust of the market and our business associates, which we welcome as it leads to increased loyalty. It is also a clear sign of our ambition for transparency.”
 
According to the latest Global Real Estate Transparency Index report, which was launched by Jones Lang LaSalle in June 2012, Turkey once again tops the global league table of transparency improvement, out of 97 markets. The increased availability of the market data, greater clarity in transaction processes, growth in real estate listed vehicles and increased participation of institutional players have all contributed to improve real estate transparency over the past two years.
 
Avi Alkaş added: “We place collective responsibility on everyone to uphold and strengthen the company’s ethical codes. New colleagues receive training on the company’s Code of Business Ethics when they start work with us, and we even share our Code of Ethics booklet with clients and the wider community.
 
Globally, Jones Lang LaSalle has been selected in the “world’s most ethical companies” list by the Ethisphere Institute for four consecutive years. The EDMER recognition is an excellent opportunity to show our global achievements across a local platform. I personally congratulate all colleagues in Turkey for their outstanding efforts and passion in consistently delivering our clear cultural values.”
