We at SriLankan Airlines believe that the right kind of engagement drives our staff to give their best day after day. With an enhanced sense of their own wellbeing and togetherness across the board, we believe that with effective employee engagement activities, each employee is motivated to contribute towards the success of the organization with an increased commitment to its goals and values.
We are always looking for platforms upon which we can bring all our employees together. Whether it be the Children’s Day, Women’s Day or other important forums such as Tea Chats with the CEO, we constantly focus on the inclusion of each and every member of the organization. Initiatives such as VERSO - the companywide talent search and the UL Sports Day brings together the entire organization in a common forum to showcase the unity and solidarity of the SriLankan Family.
As part of our employee engagement activities, we make sure that climate surveys are conducted regularly which help us understand the needs and desires of the employees of our organization. We believe that a positive working environment where each and every member could expand and thrive is key to a successful corporate culture which ultimately results in the flourishing of the organization itself.
