LAUGFS Holdings, one of the largest diversified business conglomerates in the country, once again took part at this year’s EDEX Expo for the fourth consecutive year, with the aim of providing a platform for local talent development and youth employment.

Organised for the 32nd time, EDEX Expo exhibition took place at the BMICH recently with the presence of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. Bringing together reputed educational institutions, students, parents, employers, and job seekers, the exhibition featured over 30 stalls attracting large crowds. 

LAUGFS Holdings conducted several interactive sessions at its stall for students and potential candidates to showcase various career options and opportunities available. Led by the LAUGFS HR team, a series of walk-in interviews and career guidance activities took place at the LAUGFS stall under the theme ‘Pride of Sri Lankan Talent’. 

The LAUGFS Lubricants Brand Ambassadors – award-winning racing driver Dilantha Malagamuwa and popular artists Bathiya and Santhush – also graced the LAUGFS stall, providing an exciting experience for the young visitors. The lucky winner of the raffle draw hosted at the LAUGFS stall also got the opportunity to join Malagamuwa in an exciting Lamborghini ride.

With over 4,000 employees spread across a diversified group covering over 20 industries, LAUGFS HR’s vision ‘To make LAUGFS a Great Company, Building a Great Team’ begins by providing great opportunities to its employees, with multiple initiatives engaged to create a platform for learning and progression.
