The management and staff from Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo recently concluded a three-day talent acquisition campaign at the BMICH. 
The career exposition named #HospitalityFromTheHeart, held from May 4 to 6, 2017, attracted a large group of jobseekers eager to join the highly-anticipated hotel opening due later this year.
The management also took it upon themselves to present their vision: to be the first choice for guests, colleagues, shareholders and business partners and their mission: to delight guests by creating engaging experiences straight from the heart. 
“Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo is full of possibilities,” said Shangri-La, Colombo Vice President and General Manager Timothy Wright.
“We understand that it is the people who make the difference in all our properties, so we make a great effort to attract the brightest talent with the right attitude, personality and values that align with our brand. 
He further averred, “We are delighted with the enthusiasm of our potential colleagues and look forward to working together to create a true Shangri-La experience here in Colombo.” 
The hotel staff held engagement activities, such as an in-house talent show, fun photo booth and a selfie corner to help bring out the personalities of all the candidates. The general manager and resident manager took time to meet all candidates.
The campaign named #HospitalityFromTheHeart focused on selecting the right profile, which goes beyond the typical job description and clearly identifies how the employee will contribute to the hotel’s primary objective in employee loyalty to achieve excellence.
Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo benefits from a prime location between the Galle Face Green promenade and Beira Lake and boasts uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean. The site occupies 10 acres of land and will be part of a mixed-use development including an office tower, two residential towers and a high-end shopping mall.  The hotel will feature 500 rooms and suites and 41 serviced apartments. Unlocking a new social and dining scene in the city, the seven restaurants, bars and lounges will offer an uncompromising selection of local and international cuisine, al fresco dining, daily live entertainment, innovative menus and trendy destinations. 
Shangri-La Hotel Colombo will have the most extensive and versatile events space in Sri Lanka, catering to over 2,000 people.
