Mountain Hawk Express Ltd. (MHE), Licensee of FedEx and TNT in Sri Lanka was ranked amongst the 25 Best Workplaces in Sri Lanka, by Great Place to Work in Sri Lanka for the fourth consecutive year along with the Silver Award under Small Scale Enterprise Category Awards at the gala event held at Shangri-La Colombo. 

The ranking was based on the results of an extensive survey conducted by the Great Place to Work in Sri Lanka involving over 50,950 employees from an excess of 90 companies representing over 20 industry sectors.

This year, FedEx including Mountain Hawk Express was recognised among Asia’s Best Multinational Workplace for 2019. MHE was amongst the eight organisations in Sri Lanka which were recognised by the Asia List for their dedication to sustaining high trust cultures for employees. 

The Great Place to Work annual study of Asia’s Best Workplaces recognises great workplaces in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East. More than 1,200 organisations are considered, representing the voices of over 1.6 million employees across eight countries. The list recognises the 75 Best Workplaces that fall under the categories of Best Multinational Workplaces in Asia, Best Large Workplaces in Asia, and Best Small and Medium Workplaces in Asia.

Hayleys Advantis Ltd. Managing Director Ruwan Waidyratne said, “Being able to stand amongst Sri Lanka’s 25 Best Workplaces for the fourth consecutive year means a lot to everyone at Mountain Hawk Express. We are also proud to have contributed towards FedEx qualifying as one of Asia’s Best Workplaces this year. What makes us unique is our culture which is inspired by FedEx values; passion, care and trust. That’s what makes us ‘A Family’. We look forward to using these achievements and past years learning to make MHE an even better place to work in the future.”

As the Licensee of FedEx and TNT in Sri Lanka, MHE has been playing a game changing role in the country for the past 32 years, offering fast, reliable and time definite express transportation to a range of industries. Enriched with the employee friendly culture benchmarked directly from the principal FedEx, the company follows the ‘People, Service, Profit’ mantra which translates as ‘take care of people, they will provide the desired service, which in return will generate profits, ultimately going back to the people’. Meanwhile MHE Chief Executive Officer Chamila Bandara said, “Throughout the years, we have considered our team as our biggest asset. That’s why each year we work towards improving our Employee Experience. Our main focus is to make our employees feel valued and appreciated whilst creating an environment that supports them to reach their maximum potential. So, being recognised as a Great Workplace in Sri Lanka and Asia is truly encouraging for us to continue being a workplace that is loved by our employees.”
