In an increasingly competitive global marketplace, attracting and retaining the right kind of talent is central to a company’s ability to grow. Shangri-La Hotel and Resorts in Sri Lanka is committed to creating an environment that attracts and inspires a talent filled internal community, which in turns allows the hotel to provide an unmatched hospitality experience to its guests.
As part of its employee branding initiative, Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort and Spa commemorated International Women’s Day by hosting a special event for all its female employees. The session was organised to appreciate the contribution of the resort’s female employees and to motivate and inspire them to achieve their personal and professional goals.
Speaking at the event General Manager Iain McCormack said, “At Shangri-La we believe that our team is our best asset. As such it is important to us to appreciate and support our employees while ensuring that everyone feels welcome and valued. We think it is important that our team is able to identify with the company and its core brand values.” “Women play a very important role in the growth of the organisation and I wish the same service and dedication continues in the coming days,” he added. Participants were encouraged to discuss their perceptions on why women are important and how they contribute to the organisation and community as a whole. Speaking at the event employees stated that women are strong willed and courageous enough to make bold decision.
Resident Manager Ghislaine Le expressed her views stating that a mother inculcates same core values that Shangri-La’s holds very highly.
A brainstorming session on how women in the organisation can be helped and foundation was formed to address issues of women under the leadership of Dinu and Sapna.
The evening ended with dance a session and special high tea for the participants.
