  • Records the best year in training and consultancy with innovative and customised programs 

Strategic training and consultation are keys to sustainable corporate building. Organisations worldwide are increasingly focusing on skill development and employee engagement, while looking out for creative ways of doing it. Pioneers in training and consultancy in Sri Lanka, 361 Degrees Ltd. marked the year 2018 as the best year for the company in terms of growth, revenue and innovative outreach.
