Surviving and thriving two decades in the information technology (IT) sphere is no mean feat and that is exactly what the Just In Time Group (JIT) can boast of.
This year, JIT celebrates 20 years of unparalleled achievement as a wholly Sri Lankan company harnessing its success and expertise towards the information communication technology (ICT) imprint in the country and contributing further towards making Sri Lanka’s mark, as an ICT hub.
It is in this background that JIT was recently conferred with the prestigious Asia’s Best Employer Brand Award, which has given us ample reason to celebrate.
“We were surprised and humbled as this award validates our efforts in making JIT a great work place,” as JIT Head of Legal and Human Resources ShereneGoonetileke remarked.
The event was organised by the Employer Branding Institute together with the World HRD Congress, Stars of the Industry Group and endorsed by the Asian Confederation of Businesses – the award for JIT came about by being identified through and for our human resource practices of creating innovation at work. JIT is also a company who believes in consistent improvement in human resource (HR) policy and inculcating values of a social employer with a complete holistic approach.
“We have reignited the company spirit to emphasize and empower a high-performance drive as part of our culture. Why? To enable our teams to work with more of an optimistic attitude, initiative, purpose and most importantly trust. People are the core of any business and creating a nurturing environment to enable them to harness their talents and grow personally and professionally is to create a great work place. This is our success.
We have dedicated the next three years to introducing and anchoring HR best practices, with an emphasis on aligning corporate strategies with the interests of employees whom we see as fundamental to company growth,” Goonetileke further said on this recognition.
“As a leading ICT solutions company in Sri Lanka, JIT continuously strives to create a culture of innovation in the work place and this award validates the efforts and gives us motivation to reach further as a preferred employee,” he added.
Creating a continuous dynamic place of work that adapts to change to keep the approach current and progressive can be a daunting task in this current fast-track world, which puts JIT above the rest. The ‘no holds barred’ all or nothing attitude is their motto at JIT. An encouraging work-life balance is on par with their KPIs with the JIT family with monthly social activities to yoga sessions to corporate quizzes that are all part of the reignite campaign – nurturing both mind and body.
“We have a variety of recognition schemes in place as we strongly believe appreciation is at the heart of a happy and content employee. A key undelaying factor is the family bond amongst the JIT team, having a majority of employees who have dedicated over 10+ years to the company, illustrating commitment and resilience.
