Chagala is committed to improving and shaping the future of the local communities in which its investments operate, like Kazakhstan, and assisting to create vital employment opportunities for the local population.
Chagala Group’s corporate social responsibility activities reflect its philosophy of implementing sound business practices; providing high-quality services; assisting the communities in which our investments operate; and helping to shape a better, more sustainable society.
We believe that these activities both benefit society and enhance corporate value.
This section outlines our key efforts to make the world a better place while creating value for our customers, partners, the environment and communities.
Our investments create vital local employment and the companies strive to create a rewarding, healthy and safe environment for all employees. The companies offer diverse and flexible work practices and take a full interest in the career development of all their staff.
To build business confidence for their customers, we believe it is essential to build inner confidence in the people too and that’s why we are committed to assist our investments to:
1. NURTURING PEOPLE TO MAKE SURE THEY FEEL VALUED, CHALLENGED AND FULFILLED
2. REWARDING AND RECOGNIZING ACHIEVEMENTS IN LINE WITH GUIDING PRINCIPLES
3. SUPPORTING CAREER DEVELOPMENT TO HELP PEOPLE REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL
4. HELPING PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE SIGNIFICANT ROLE THEY PLAY
5. ENGAGING WITH PEOPLE, LISTENING TO THEIR FEEDBACK AND CHANGING HOW WE DO THINGS FOR THE BETTER
6. PROVIDING THE TOOLS, KNOWLEDGE AND SUPPORT PEOPLE NEED TO DO A GREAT JOB FOR CUSTOMERS.
We recognize that the people are our most valuable asset. We have therefore developed an internal program for both executives and employees of Chagala Group and its investments to ensure we attract, motivate and develop talent that enables us to achieve sustainable growth, deliver client excellence and enhance our reputation.
