The objective of the survey was to benchmark corporate entities and organisations as preferred employers in Sri Lanka.
In its report on the survey, LMD magazine states that "Commercial Bank wins a seal of approval as the most desired employer in Sri Lanka."
The magazine listed 42 companies in the ranking, which includes two global banks, multinationals, leading Sri Lankan conglomerates and top apparel manufacturers.
"Our people are without a doubt the key to our position as Sri Lanka’s leading private bank, and we are pleased to be acknowledged as a leader across sectors, in the sphere of HR," said Dinesh Weerakkody, Commercial Bank’s Chairman. He said the Bank provides many opportunities to its employees to build a career within the organization.
"This ranking is a valuable endorsement of the commitment of the Bank to adhere to best practices in the field of human resources management, and the consistent efforts made by the Bank to ensure that all employees reach their highest potential," said Ravi Dias, Commercial Bank’s Managing Director/CEO.
The largest private bank in Sri Lanka, Commercial Bank employs 4,400 people and is the only Sri Lankan Bank to be listed two years consecutively in the world’s Top 1000 Banks.
