The Chamber of Young Lankan Entrepreneurs (COYLE), in collaboration with Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO), will organise a free workshop for HR managers and administrational managers of companies engaging in or planning to commence health and productivity management programs for employee health, to be held on 7 August from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Jetwing Colombo 7.

The ‘Sri Lanka Corporate Health and Productivity Awards’ will be held in the similar lines of the Health and Productivity Stock Selection program held in Japan by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE).

The project seeks to promote the selected enterprises as an attractive investment option for investors who prioritise the improvement of corporate value from a long-term perspective. Through this effort, COYLE, together with JETRO, aims to raise public recognition of enterprises engaging in health and productivity management and to thereby further promote such management programs.

Companies categorised under Extra Large, Large, Medium and Small, based on the number of employees, will be selected for eligibility. Outstanding enterprises engaging in health and productivity management programs that focus on and strategically carry out efforts with regards to their employees’ health from a management perspective will be selected. 

Corporate health programs are critical for maximising performance, particularly in volatile economic times. It is proven to improve engagement, retention, productivity and performance – the ripple effect of which contributes to a healthier and positive-thinking workforce, resulting in higher product quality and customer service.

COYLE is a business chamber with 120 members, comprising of business owners and entrepreneurs, having an extensive national and international business network, offering a broad spectrum of activities and services. Chamber members collaborate with Government officials, policymakers and community organisations to support the community and each other with the mission of building businesses and community through its motto “Recognition through Excellence.”
