 McLarens Group at the Great Place to Work 2019 award ceremony

McLarens Group, one of Sri Lanka’s largest diversified conglomerates was certified and listed as one of the Top 25 Great Places to Work 2019 for the fourth consecutive year. The award ceremony was held at Shangri-La, Hotel Colombo on 5 July where the Group received this esteemed award.

The Great Place to Work Institute primarily focuses on developing high trust workplace cultures by helping companies recognise, mould, improve and sustain their unique workplace environments. This award recognises the crème de la crème of corporates, where this year the survey was conducted based on a study of over 30,000 employees from a collection of over 90 companies.

“Having been honoured with this award for four consecutive years, we have learned that the workplace needs to evolve in all aspects for it to remain a Great Place to Work. We believe the right blend of our family culture and open-door policy, coupled with the trust and responsibility we place in our fellow employees, together with a push for a healthy and balanced lifestyle gives us a steady foundation to continuously develop a Great Place to Work. With 70 years in the industry, the McLarens Group’s success is dedicated to our passionate and loyal corporate family,” commented McLarens Group Joint Managing Director Shehara Jayawardana. 

McLarens Group is a rendition of continuous resilience and consistent quality when it comes to shipping and shipping related services. While maritime and logistics remain at the heart of the company, the Group has ventured into petroleum and energy, manufacturing and distribution, property and strategic investment and leisure. Being a diversified conglomerate involves working with a variety of people, clients and businesses with a varied range of requirements and distinct personalities. At McLarens, that relationship begins internally, with our corporate family and the well-rounded bond we have with our employees.

“The continued success of this triumphant McLarens journey is dedicated to our loyal employees; therefore, we extend our appreciation and our gratitude to all our employees for sticking with us through thick and thin.”
