In appreciation of their long service and contribution to the bank over the last two decades, Seylan Bank recently celebrated the achievements of more than 200 employees who have completed 25 years of heartfelt service with Seylan Bank. 

The felicitation event is a part of the bank’s continued focus to recognise and appreciate the commitment and dedication of its long serving employees. The bank presented a sovereign gold coin and a plaque in appreciation of their contribution to Seylan Bank for over a quarter century. 

The gala event was graced by Seylan Bank Chairman Ravi Dias, Director/CEO Kapila Ariyaratne and the Senior Management.  

Commenting on the occasion, Kapila Ariyaratne said: “These awards are not just simply for long service, but a reward and recognition for loyalty and dedication. Loyalty and dedication are the keys to the success of any organisation. The long years of service of these exceptional staff is ample proof of the conducive working environment provided by Seylan Bank. 

“As the bank with a heart, we understand the value and importance of the human resource and we will continue to enhance the facilities and incentives as tools of motivation to our staff. This ceremony itself is an evidence of Seylan Bank’s efforts to ensure our employees are recognised and appreciated for their efforts. I would like to extend my gratitude to the recipients for demonstrating faith in the company, and standing by it for over a period of 25 years.” 

In addition, the nominated employees were given a glimpse of their journey with the bank, showcasing the bank’s transformative journey and how they have grown along with the bank thus making the Seylan family stronger with time.  

“It is commendable to witness the 25-year journey of these employees who have proved their courage by overcoming challenges and embracing opportunities in building the Seylan brand and transforming it to what it stands today. The felicitation is a part of honouring the progressive career of these employees and encouragement to do more whilst continuing their excellence in their respective fields. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to every one of you and wish you all the best as we march towards a new era in exploring new prospects in the banking sector,” said Human Resources Deputy General Manager Jayantha Amarasinghe.

The evening ended on a high note with dinner for the staff along with entrainment and music.
