The aim of this study is to analyze the impact of nepotism on the employee performance and to find out what kind of a strategic move can be nepotism in the presence of such a relation. Although personnel selection through nepotism which is also known as family or acquaintance partiality causes a certain amount of disadvantages, it is possible at the same time to have more loyal employees to the company. In the framework of this study, Istanbul Anatolian Side has been chosen as a pilot area and the questionnaires have focused mostly on telecommunication and logistics sectors. The outcomes obtained at the end of the study reveal that nepotism does not have a direct impact on employee performance. Besides that, it has been found out that self-devotion factor, when it has been evaluated independently from nepotism, has an impact on the employee performance in a direct and positive way. Accordingly, the study includes certain suggestions for managers and academicians in its conclusion.
