With this endeavour, IPM is fulfilling its mandate to uplift the standard of human resources management in Sri Lanka while providing a platform as well as an opportunity for the HR fraternity to engage in fruitful deliberations on timely topics,” said IPM Sri Lanka President Prof. Ajantha Dharmasiri.
“Emotional intelligence and work-life balance are two important factors in today’s complex business and social framework that we operate in on a day-to-day basis. Both go hand in hand for the well-being of the individual as well as the organisation.

During his presentation, which was titled ‘Yin and Yang of work life balance – emotional intelligence of everyday life’, Dr. Law emphasized that in order to meet the health needs of the people, an employer must necessarily provide a method or methods for employees to make their needs known and have ways and means of addressing those needs in an organisational context. This will help the organisations to develop a comprehensive framework for a healthy work-life balance. 
Furthermore, Dr. Law explained the inter-relationships that exist between emotional intelligence, work-life balance and mindfulness and the extent to which these factors impact organisational efficiency and effectiveness. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session where members of the audience were able to clarify and address their concerns on the subject.
