Certis Lanka Security Solutions Ltd. was recognised as one of the ‘25 Best Workplaces in Sri Lanka’ for the second consecutive year at the Great Place To Work awards ceremony held at Shangri-La Colombo on 5 July.

The Great Place To Work Institute provides the model, benchmarking and guidance needed to build, sustain and recognise outstanding workplace cultures. It aims to help organisations in maintaining a high trust and a high performance culture. This year more than 23,000 employees were surveyed from 90 organisations with a reach of over 50,000 employees. 

Certis Lanka Group participated in The Great Place To Work Assessment – Study 2019, seeking to build high level of employee trust, engagement, pride and camaraderie that is to build a Great Workplace culture. 

Participation in the assessment was a step in that direction where the leadership team will understand the diagnosis of its current situation, the aspects which are being perceived well by employees and the areas which should be improved to help Certis Lanka Group discover and baseline perceptions of its employees on key aspects of workplace relationships, through analysis of the employee survey feedback.

Certis Lanka Group is a joint venture with Certis International Ltd. of Singapore, a wholly owned company of Temasek Holdings which is the private investment arm of the Singapore Government. It has been operating for the past 42 years and is the trendsetter in providing loss prevention, secure logistics and caring services in Sri Lanka. Certis Lanka consists of five companies providing services in Manpower Security, Cash Management, Cash Transport, ATM Replenishments, Electronic Security Systems, Courier Services, Home and Industrial Nursing, Doctor On Call and Ambulance Services.

“This achievement means that our employees ‘trust’ the people they work for, have ‘pride’ in what they do and ‘enjoy’ the company of people they work with. This is a great accomplishment in part because we are contributing to the movement to create a better world. It will also further motivate our people, help us to recruit and retain top talent and can boost public confidence in our organisation. We take this opportunity to salute and say thank you to all our employees who contributed on achieving this great milestone.”
