The Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) was presented with a National HR Excellence Gold Award at the recently held National HR Conference for 2016.
Organised by the Institute of Personnel Management (IPM), the conference is tagged as South Asia’s largest HR event. The award was presented in recognition of the CSE’s exceptional HRM practices and the contribution of the HR function towards driving organisational performance.
The shortlisting for the award was done in three rounds, including an in-depth audit of the company’s HR practices and a final viva conducted by a distinguished panel of HR specialists. The award under the Gold category was presented to seven companies, namely: Bodyline, Unilever, Browns, Sampath Bank, Virtusa, Hayleys Plantations and the CSE.
Commenting on the award, CSE CEO Rajeeva Bandaranaike stated, “We are proud to have won an HR recognition award at a national level and it is an endorsement of the transformation that has taken place in HR practices at the CSE.”
IPM holds the National HR Excellence Awards as part of the National HR Conference to recognize individuals and companies for their exceptional people management practices.
CSE Head of HR Prashanthi Sabesan said, “We recognize that achieving outstanding results start with our people and we continually strive to establish and enhance sustainable HR practices. We are honoured to receive this award and we would like to offer our gratitude to IPM for creating this platform.”
This award comes at the back of the CSE’s recent success in being recognized by the Global HR Excellence awards for the Most Innovative Use of Training and Development.
