As Palamut Group, we try to be successful in all areas of life and defend the importance of supporting the successful ones.
We are honored to achieve new successes every year with our sponsorship activities and teams.
We sponsored Marmara University Sailing Club. We are proud to be partners in the future dreams and successes of our youth. As Palamut Group, we will always be behind strong, fearless, successful and determined generations.
Operating in two different sectors, Palamut Group and CPM Software have found a common ground in the sea. Competing for the summit under the leadership of Targan Hazarhun, Palamut & CPM Sailing Team worked hard and non-stop to live the team spirit in the sea and to achieve success in this field, and managed to return home with trophies.
Recep Palamut, Chairman of the Board of Palamut Group, stated that he participated in the races individually before establishing the Palamut & CPM Sailing team; “When we thought about how we could make these races both more professionally and as a social activity, including our employees, we decided to participate in the races with a racing boat, and we received serious feedback that our employees would support this team and want to participate in the races. The idea of establishing a team with our company employees increased our motivation.”
“A sailing boat is like running a company. There is team work. There is a leader in the team and everyone listens to that leader’s direction. Each team is in an important position individually. The general manager is the leader and the executive members are the rings of the company. Just as a storm can break out at sea, companies may face various crises. In this case, the leader should be able to make quick decisions, keep the motivation of the staff high, and manage stress management well. The leader may vary depending on the move to be made in sailing and the General Manager may perform different duties in the team and take orders. This increases the efficiency in the company and improves the empathy of the employees.”
