OUR SOCIAL POLICY
Otium Eco Club believes that tourism industry, whose prosperity is related with exploitation of natural resources, has to make effort to protect and improve the environmental values and the living conditions. Consequently, decisions taken by Oti Holding in 2009 were published in Declaration on Environment and followed by environmental projects. Based on the defined environmental aspects environmental performance targets are monitored and continuous improvement is reported.
Otium Eco Club carried out such a social responsibility projects as Natural Environment Protection, Promotion and Support Projects, Protection of Human Rights Contribution and Support for Education. Industry-leading environmental projects led by Oti Holding Companies are being developed under the main theme "Green is good".
Otium Eco Club supports constantly local social charity projects by participation in various charity campaigns, sponsoring and donating. International Children's Rights policies are followed to perform these. One of the schools from the region is chosen each year for planting and children and local people are consulted together with the Management
As Otium Eco Club we pay a great importance to regional development, therefore not only we choose our employees from the Manavgat region but also we privilege local products and materials. In this way, continuing professional development as well as service quality increases the number of our repeat guests. Hereby we have the opportunity to integrate traditional lifestyle and we support traditional formation. We are in consultation with our staff with the awareness of that good service is a result of satisfied staff and we make them contribute continuous improvement by asking their opinions.
