IPM Sri Lanka – the nation’s leader in human resources management (HRM) – organised its signature programme ‘HRM for Life’ at a sundown seminar at the Kandyan Reach Hotel in Kurunegala recently providing an event-filled evening for understanding the importance and relevance of applying human resources management principles and theories to the day-to-day lives of people in order to be successful at the workplace as well as in the home. 

A large gathering numbering over 140 public and private sector professionals, school principals, teachers and other invitees from towns and cities close to Kurunegala participated in this evening event with much enthusiasm which was followed with cocktails and dinner.  

The resource person for the seminar – the renowned and much sought-after management and HR professional Prof. Ajantha Dharmasiri – delivered a lively and informative bilingual presentation   expanding on the theme: ‘HRM for Life’ that elicited rapt attention by the audience who were well entertained as well, for the duration of the event. 

Prof. Ajantha Dharmasiri is the Professor in Management and Director/Chairman of the Board of Management of the Postgraduate Institute of Management, University of Sri Jayewardenepura. He also serves as an Adjunct Professor at the Price College of Business, University of Oklahoma, USA. He recently won the prestigious IPM Lifetime Gold Award 2014, the highest honour for an HR professional in Sri Lanka. 

Delivering the keynote address, IPM Sri Lanka President Rohitha Amarapala said that they decided to host the ‘HRM for Life’ evening seminar in Kurunegala in order to benefit the professionals both in the private as well as public sector living in and around the busy town of Kurunegala who seldom had time to travel to Colombo to attend important seminars and be exposed to networking opportunities of this nature. 

“This seminar will no doubt help a professional or student in any field of management understand the importance of HR for their daily lives while redefining the perception about HRM as a profession, enhancing awareness on HR development and its importance and will help in uplifting HR knowledge,” he added. 
Addressing the invitees, IPM Sri Lanka Chief Executive Officer Dyan Seneviratne shared the compelling factors which made IPM pick Kurunegala as a Regional Centre with its myriad plus-factors, emphasized on the importance of applying human resources management concepts to one’s own life in order to be successful both as a professional as well as an individual.
