Sustainable Development Goals

Sustainable development has formed the set of rules that must be applied worldwide with the international agreements reached in the 1990s.

Sustainable development is a development strategy that meets the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs and survive. Sustainable development rules came into force at the end of the 20th century and formed the body of rules that should be applied worldwide with the international agreements reached in the 1990s.

The implementation of a development plan in which the link between the natural environment, social life and economic conditions and development is not fully established can meet the current demands. However, in the future, it may compromise on meeting the basic needs of individuals. Because it is uncertain when socioeconomic and environmental expansion may cause negative effects. In addition, environmental damage can have irreversible consequences in many cases. Therefore, the underlying principle of sustainable development is to analyze the economic, social and environmental structures holistically and to ensure that current and future generations benefit from the opportunities offered by progress in a fair way.

The Sustainable Development Goals, which were approved by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015 and started to be implemented on January 1, 2016, are a movement alert consisting of 17 general objectives valid for countries with different developmental levels. It creates a strategy to end poverty, protect the environment, ensure that all people live in peace and comfort, and provide perspective for global and local sustainable development practices by 2030.

Although the Sustainable Development Goals were developed as viable goals for governments, they play a critical role in achieving each of these goals through business practices, responsible corporate practices, new ways of doing business, investment, innovation, technology and partnership. This is 17 sustainable development goal builds on the achievements of the Millennium Development Goals approved by governments in 2001 and expired in December 2015 ; it also covers new priorities such as global warming, seasonal changes, injustice in economic fields, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and others. The Sustainable Development Goals function within a culture of cooperation and pragmatism by making the right decisions now for a better life for future generations. It gives all countries clear direction and targets to follow in line with their priorities and global environmental concerns.

Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

Beyond the traditional and uniform working models, we believe in the diversity of working models, their compatibility with people and mutual respect for people. From system designs to our processes, as well as to the questions that create the data that feeds our algorithms, we focus on this issue.

Although the number of workers in extreme poverty has decreased significantly compared to the last century, thanks to the global economic growth that has taken place in the last 25 years, the current conditions are still not enough to stop the work in this field. Unemployment still remains a very important problem in geographies where economic growth is slow and social inequalities are more common. According to the report released by the International Labor Organization, as of 2015, the number of unemployed people in the world was approximately 204 million. As Workflex, we are creating a community that brings together people and institutions who, despite being qualified and equipped, cannot find a job that meets their expectations and needs in the working model they seek, and prefer to work in the business model as independent experts.

“Decent Work and Economic Growth”; It aims to encourage entrepreneurship and job opportunities, to provide equal employment conditions to different social groups, and to achieve global economic growth with sustainable methods. As Workflex, we support these efforts and stand by those who want to create value and aim to make their lives easier.

Goal 5: Gender Equality

As Workflex, we find it extremely important that women have equal rights in all areas of life, especially in order to achieve sustainable development in social, economic and social terms. Although significant progress has been made in the field of gender equality with the work carried out by the United Nations since the beginning of the 21st century, women still have equal conditions with men in many different fields from education to business life in many parts of the world.It is obvious that he is not hip.

The goal of “Gender Equality”; By 2030, it aims to ensure that women have equal rights to economic resources such as land or property, to support women in business life in both public and private sectors, and to create a world where women can access many basic human rights, especially reproductive health, on equal terms. As Workflex, we, too, can help productive value-creating women get married, have children, care for the elderly or health issues, etc. We are working to ensure that the new generation working models that will encourage them not to break away from working life for reasons, to work flexibly and to continue producing by arranging their own time, and to encourage them not to be idle, are also widespread in Turkey.
