Illustrating the company’s leadership prowess, Airtel Lanka clinched the ‘Company with Great Managers’ title as well as three individual awards for the second consecutive year at the Great Manager Awards 2018 held at The Kingsbury recently. 

The company’s Head of Business Intelligence Rumal Warnakulasuriya, Head of Brand Strategy and Corporate Communications Charith De Chickera and Zonal Business Manager Shamil Amit received accolades for their leadership skills and performance.  

The Great Manager Awards identify, assess and recognise the managerial and leadership quotient of exceptional managers in organisations, providing an avenue for mangers to benchmark with the best, ascertain their strengths, provide guidance for development and enable them to become the best in their domain.  

Commenting on the prestigious accolades, Bharti Airtel Lanka CEO/MD Jinesh Hegde said: “The recognition we received at the Great Manager Awards 2018 is testament to the organisation’s continuous commitment and efforts in people development. The awards recognise and honour the calibre of our managers and the success of the ‘Lead Right’ program which is the flagship people manager development program of Airtel. Through fostering more great managers with specific training and development interventions, we envisage the growth and development of a dynamic and effective leadership pipeline across our organisation.”

Great Manager Awards select winners based on a global research-based model known as R-OPTI. The model evaluates management style, focus on results, execution, people management, building team effectiveness and integrity of leaders. 

A global HR management initiative that revolves around identifying and rewarding inspiring and effective leaders in managerial positions, the Great Manager Awards foster a culture of improving performance capabilities and business acumen of management bodies in organisations.
