Briefly describe this entry's communications objectives and how it met those objectives (up to 200 words):

Turk Telekom everyday connects millions of subscribers. Behind this giant operation there is a great effort of our 30 thousand employees. Everyday we see many nice examples of how we care our customers. Our objective was to make them aware how great work they do. For this, we chose one real story, make the film of it and show it to employees with a message: "We are all heroes in this big family"

Employees sent many experiences about their contribution to our customers. Inhouse jury decided 'Beytusebap story'. Our teams in this impoverished town (50km away to Iraq border) made their best to connect a concerned mother with her son who is there for his military service. The film took 2 weeks to shot.


Turk Telekom CEO Paul Doany posted the film in his social media accounts. Than we broadcast the film in all 250 branches and shops all around the country.

-Employees loved the story, shared on their accounts and it got 2.5 million organic reach.
