The grand finale of ‘Laugfs on Stage’, Laugfs’ very own in-house talent show, was held recently at the Musaeus College Auditorium, showcasing the many creative talents of its diverse team across the group.


The event was inaugurated by Chief Guests Laugfs Holdings Chairman, W.K.H. Wegapitiya and the Group Managing Director, Thilak De Silva. The finale was adjudged by a renowned judging panel of Sri Lankan artists, which included Nemali Budawatta, Samitha Mudunkotuwa, Lakshman Wijesekara and Ramesh Uvais. The auditorium was packed with over 750 spectators, who were treated to a fun-filled evening of entertainment by the many talented colleagues on stage.


A project by Laugfs HR, the event drew in an overwhelming number of applications from staff across the group for a range of categories, including solo and group dancing, singing as well as instrumental acts. The enthusiastic participants were screened through two selection rounds by the panel.
 A series of workshops were also carried out by industry veterans, Jayantha Rathnayake and Nemali Budawatta, sharing their experiences and providing invaluable guidance for the contestants to help sharpen their talent and to prepare them for the finals.


“As a diverse conglomerate with over 4,000 staff scattered across Sri Lanka serving over 20 industries, creating effective engagement with our staff is always a challenge. Events such as this help us to embrace and celebrate the diversity of our people, and to bring them onto one unique platform appreciated and recognized by all,” remarked Group Chief Human Resource Officer of LAUGFS, Ms. Dulani Nissanka. “This event will not only help recognize and stimulate creativity among our colleagues, but will also provide a platform to showcase their extraordinary talent in front of the entire company,” she further added.

The music for the evening was provided by a live orchestra directed by Jayantha Rathnayake. The audience was treated to a spectacle of sensational performances delivered amidst the resounding cheer of colleagues.
