CIPM officials and well-wishers look on while CIPM Sri Lanka President Dhammika Fernando cuts the ribbon to open the new building

CIPM Sri Lanka – the nation’s leader in human resource management – recently acquired a new building in close proximity to its head office in Colombo 5 to facilitate the growing demand for its programs conducted by the Business School. 

The new building is located at Trillium, No. 38, Somadevi Place, Kirulapone Avenue in Colombo 5. The soft opening of the new location was held on Saturday 20 April with the participation of 

CIPM Sri Lanka President Dhammika Fernando, CIPM Standing Committee for New Infrastructure, Development and Planning Chairman Priyantha Ranasinghe, CIPM Council Members, CIPM CEO P.G. Tennakoon, faculty members, staff and well-wishers. The new building has a capacity of accommodating over 1,000 students at any given time. 

“This occasion, which is a result of in-depth investment and development planning conducted by the Council of CIPM, fulfills a dream as we now have over 10,000 students in the CIPM Business School. With the additional demand from students and professionals alike after being awarded the Charter status, the new infrastructure will be of immense value to the learners,” said CIPM Sri Lanka President Fernando. 

“Being qualified in the field of HRM while continuously expanding knowledge and horizons, as well as being knowledgeable in HRM and its practices, are equally important for professionals in HR and managers in other disciplines. We are experiencing the success of our efforts to position HRM as a career of choice for professionals and as an essential area to develop knowledge for non-HR professionals. CIPM Business School has a heavy demand for our programs from students for their basic and advanced qualification in HRM as well as from HR professionals who are seeking to enhance their careers with CPD (Continuous Professional Development) programs we offer,” he added.

“The new building is complete with state of the art learning and teaching facilities and has approximately 21 lecture halls, cafeteria, student discussion areas, free Wi-Fi zone, rest rooms for faculty members and a separate area for parking of vehicles. It is also easily accessible due to its close proximity (walking distance) from the bustling town of Kirulapone. This new location will enable to create the right learning environment for the students. Most of the CIPM Business School programs will be held at this new location,” said Ranasinghe.

CIPM is affiliated to the Asia Pacific Federation of Human Resource Management (APFHRM) and to the World Federation of People Management Associations (WFPMA). CIPM, being a professional institute is also a constituent member of the Organization of Professional Associations [OPA] Sri Lanka. Currently, CIPM membership comprises of over 1200 Professional Members who serve in both public and private organisations. The Chartered Status was conferred on CIPM by the Parliament of Sri Lanka on the 28th of September 2018 by amending the original Act No. 24 of 1976.
