The Great Places to Work Awards recognizes organizations in Sri Lanka based on feedback from employees on what makes an organization a great place to work?. This research was conducted in Sri Lanka for the third successive year by the GPTW Institute in partnership with LMD and the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce. Out of over 60 leading corporates and over 12,000 employees in the country amongst whom this research was conducted, Airtel Lanka was the youngest organization and the only telecommunications company to win this title.

“It is our team’s passion to perform that enables us to operate in a highly competitive and regulated industry. The overall people strategy at Airtel is all about building capabilities to take the business to the next phase of growth. Therefore, we don’t simply give jobs, we present careers with enriching experiences and challenging growth opportunities which is what makes Airtel a great place to work,” said Suren Goonewardene, Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director, Bharti Airtel Lanka.

“This is a fantastic achievement for team airtel,” said Anouchka Pathirana, Head of HR, Bharti Airtel Lanka. Despite being a young entrant into the industry, within such a short period of time our steadfast commitment towards our people agenda is being recognized by GPTW, is a significant achievement for us.
“The growth opportunities at Airtel are tremendous, and is beyond boundaries. Our key focus areas have always been on creating a highly engaged and dynamic team of individuals. Our continuous nurturing of talent and building of capability through focused interventions is a key differentiator. Our core values of “Alive, Inclusive and respectful” is the driving force behind all our accomplishments” she stated.

Bharti Airtel Lanka commenced commercial operations of services in Sri Lanka on January 12, 2009. With its network footprint panned out across the country, Airtel has emerged as Sri Lanka’s fastest expanding network.
