  • The Use of Sustainability Practices in Social Media Communication: An
           Evaluation Specific to the Banking Sector

    • Authors: Duygu KOTAN TÜRKDEN; Yeliz KUŞAY
      Abstract: Social, economic and environmental management understanding of institutions necessitates the need to carry existing values to the future. One of the most important factors that will make this need sustainable is stakeholder relations or target audience communication in a communicative sense. In recent years, with the more frequent discussion of issues such as communication strategies, changing social structure, limited resources, environmental problems, social inequality, which institutions carry out due to their social responsibility understanding, many institutions choose only one area and raise awareness of the society in this area, draw attention to any social issue, raise awareness. Beyond the concept of corporate social responsibility designed with a focus on it, it necessitates the restructuring of institutions starting from their own business processes. In this context, the understanding of sustainability ensures integrity by transferring an integrated structure to the communication process and tries to carry the institutions to the future.In this study, it is aimed to examine how the banking sector in Turkey uses the “Sustainability Principles” included in the Sustainability reports in the target audience communication. The use of social media is becoming increasingly important in terms of stakeholder participation and support in the understanding of sustainable public relations. According to Hootsuite ve We Are Social 2021 Dijital Turkey reports, YouTube is the most used social media platform in Turkey in 2021. From this point of view, in this study, a case study will be made by examining the 2021 YouTube contents of Akbank, which is the first Turkish deposit bank to publish its sustainability report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Principles. As a result of the research, it was seen that the bank included projects on the principles included in the sustainability reports in their YouTube content, but the fact that the account was closed to comments was interpreted as a limiting factor for target audence participation.

  • Corporate Political Activism and Reputation Risks: The Starbucks Case Via
           Media Exposures

    • Authors: Bayram Bilge SAĞLAM; Egemen ERTÜRK
      Abstract: Corporate political activism (CPA) could be defined as a business’ stance towards political issues which are of particular interest to a part or majority of the public, and actions they take in this context. When compared with ordinary corporate social responsibility activities, CPA activities, due to the subjects focused, pose risk of reputation loss for businesses that implement them. The reformed business-community dynamics that were shaped by the changing consumer expectations and increasing impact of businesses, forces said businesses to conduct a more thorough decision making process. In this research that handles the Starbucks Race Together campaign, which is originated from the racial unrest in the United States of America and resulted in corporate reputation loss, it is aimed to thoroughly investigate the reasons behind said reputation loss. The findings that were acquired through media exposures show that “lack of sincerity of the campaign”, “business-cause incompatibility and problems regarding the applicability of the campaign”, and “aim-application incompatibility of the campaign” play a crucial role in the reputation loss of a business. Despite the risks it brings about regarding reputation, it is not possible to deem CPA activities as utterly harmful or useless. The findings from the Starbucks Race Together campaign provide essential implications for businesses that would like to participate in advocacy of social problems.

  • Sustainable Leadership Practices in Public Relations: A Study on TED
           Leadership Talks

    • Authors: Simge ÜNLÜ; Lütfiye YAŞAR, Erdal BİLİCİ
      Abstract: TED is a conference where leaders with different interests share their experiences. That conferences are held several times a year. Leaders contribute to their leadership skills by exchanging information at these conferences. In this research it is aimed to examine TED’s talks according to public relations leadership models within the framework of the concept of sustainable leadership. The research is essential in terms of revealing the leadership models and sustainable leadership roles in leadership speeches. In this context, the research sample consists of three speeches that received the most attention. Content and discourse analysis were used together as a research method. TED’s leadership speech content was first classified by the content analysis method in version 20.2.2 of the Maxqda program. Then, the obtained categories were also analyzed by the discourse analysis method. In this context, charismatic leadership, visionary leadership, and success-based leadership models were mentioned in leadership speeches. Leaders’ ability to change the world, being strong, reliable/transparent, and being open to learning were highlighted in the speech content. It has been seen that leadership roles and perceptions shape macro discourse in TED’s leadership speeches. In this context, it has been determined that the macro discourses mentioned are formed through the role of the leader to unite his followers around a belief or purpose, to foresee change, to provide consultancy, to create innovation, and to manage the masses. While micro-discourse was shaped around everyday language, establishing causality and reference connections in speech rhetoric drew attention.

           and Tourism

    • Authors: Başak SOLMAZ; Bahar URHAN, Havva Nur TARAKCI, Doğan Can GAZAZ
      Abstract: The tourism sector has an important role in the development and continuity of a country’s environmentalactivities. For this reason, its effectiveness should be maintained in situations that may adversely affect thesector, such as natural disasters or epidemics. The main purpose of the study is to examine the proactivecrisis communication efforts of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism on Twitter from the perspective ofsustainability during the coronavirus pandemic period. In this context, 1626 posts were shared by theMinistry of Culture and Tourism on the official Twitter account named “@TCKulturTurizm” in 20 months,and a total of 11 thousand 293 comments on these posts were divided into four periods and analyzed bydata mining technique; R Programming Language and libraries were used in the process of collecting,recording, processing, analyzing and visualizing data. The posts within the scope of the research andthe comments on these posts were interpreted from the perspective of proactive crisis management andsustainability. During the coronavirus period, the interaction (like reply and re-sharing (RT) averages) onthe Twitter posts of the ministry increased periodically. Although the comments on the Twitter posts ofthe Ministry show the efforts of people to convey their victimhood caused by the pandemic, related postswere not found sufficient in terms of sustainability-oriented content within the scope of proactive crisiscommunication. During the pandemic process, stakeholders need to be informed accurately with datafrom reliable tourism-related sources, and they should be protected from receiving false information, fakenews, or exaggerated reports that may cause fear. For this reason, it is recommended that the ministryshould base proactive communication and sustainability on the use of social media.

  • Goals and Practices in Corporate Sustainability Communication:
           Doğuş Otomotiv Case

    • Authors: Omer VATANARTIRAN
      Abstract: The concept of sustainability was introduced in 1987 by the United Nations Brundtland Commission,at a time when global society was experiencing various political, economic and social conflicts. Statesdeveloped legal measures for a more sustainable life and placed the topic at the core of their politicalagendas. They were followed shortly by non-governmental organizations, municipalities, companies andthe media, who started developing strategies for economic growth that also integrated a sustainable naturalenvironment and society. Although sustainability practices in the business world sometimes remainedsuperficial for some companies and did not go beyond an effort to adapt to business trends, the proportionof corporations that take genuine action for real social change has gradually increased and this has led tothe development of norms in the private sphere. In Turkey, more and more companies have redesignedtheir communication strategies in light of the growing awareness around sustainability and the relatedsocial expectations. In this process, it became important to understand the way in which leading companiesexperienced this transformation and to what extent they combined sustainability practices with the valuesof their stakeholders. With this purpose in mind, this study focuses on Doğuş Otomotiv’s sustainabilityvalues and the communication strategies they implement to spread them. Content analysis was con1ductedon sustainability reports and websites from a qualitative perspective, and an in-depth interview was heldwith a senior Corporate Communications manager. Accordingly, it has been concluded that sustainabilityis defined as a participatory, flexible, open communication-based concept among all stakeholders, as wellas a dynamic and broad concept inherent in corporate ethics and company culture. It also appears that sustainability communication takes a different form in different channels depending on the stakeholderprofile, and that in this sense, new media presents both opportunities and challenges.

  • The Role of Social Media in the Transition from a Sustainable Environment
           to Decent Work: The Case of Street Collectors in Turkey

    • Authors: Safure CANTÜRK
      Abstract: Recycling practices, which are an indispensable part of the sustainable development model in developingcountries within the scope of combating climate change, brought the issue of waste collection and streetcollection to the agenda. In developing countries like Turkey, where source separation is impossible, streetcollection has become a vital participant in the recycling market. This research examines the impacts of theeconomic worth of recyclable wastes on the social status of street collectors and their transfer to a decentwork environment, as well as the function of the media in this transition. After reviewing the literatureand legislation, this article applies content analysis on the relevant social media posts between the dateof October 3, 2021, when the local governments in Istanbul made a police raid on street collectors, andOctober 30, 2021, when the street collectors issue was on the agenda. As a consequence of the increasedsocial and environmental awareness caused by climate change on a global scale, the legislative arrangementsmade at the national level have enabled the waste to gain economic value. The organized street collectors’defence of their rights and public announcement of their grievances through their representatives underthe pressure of local governments had a societal impact on social media and entered into politicians’ andgovernment’s agendas. Accordingly, in the past, perceptions of street collectors as “dirty”, “criminal”, and“poor” all of which were directly related with poverty in society, have been replaced by perceptions of“environmental protection”, “worker who earns their bread” and “zero waste stakeholder”. The analysisshows that 79% of Twitter user shares support street collectors and view the police raid negatively. On theother hand, only 2% of the users see the police raid as necessary for “maintaining public order”. As a result,sustainable environmental policies carried out within the scope of combating climate change have improved the economic situation of street collectors, positively affecting their organization and the improvement ofdecent work environments. These developments have affected street collectors to increase their visibility inthe media and change their social perceptions positively.
