Ceylinco Life has been ranked among the 10 Best Workplaces in Sri Lanka’s Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) sector by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.
Great Place to Work® announced its inaugural list of Best Workplaces in the BFSI Industries in Sri Lanka for 2021 at a recent awards presentation at the Hilton Colombo.
The list was compiled by Great Place to Work® after surveying almost 21,000 employees across the sector. The Top 10 were selected on the basis of positive employee perceptions and the policies and practices of the organisation in relation to human resources.
Notably, Ceylinco Life was certified as a ‘Great Workplace’ in Sri Lanka for the first time in 2020 by the same organisation. The insurance leader retained this title in 2021 with a five-mark improvement over the overall rating accorded to it in the previous year.
Commenting on this latest accolade, Ceylinco Life Executive Director Human Resources Mr Devaan Cooray said: “This award validates Ceylinco Life’s efforts to develop a great workplace for its employees through best practices that enrich work relationships and continuously enhance the employee experience. Our employees believe that they work for a great organisation, continue to trust the people they work for, take pride in what they do, and enjoy the company of the people they work with.”
