GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the leading pharmaceuticals and vaccines company in Sri Lanka, has paid tribute to 11 long serving employees for their loyalty to the company.
The employees who were felicitated at this year’s edition of the annual long service awards programme which constitutes a key component of GSK’s employee recognition and rewards agenda, had completed 25, 20, 15 or 10 years with the company.
Addressing these employees at a ceremony held in their honour, Stuart Chapman, Managing Director of GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals Sri Lanka said: “GSK is grateful to you for your initial choice of joining the company, for the many years through which you have delivered results, for being champions of the company’s values and behaviours and for enriching the lives of hundreds of others at GSK. We also appreciate the support of your family through these long years at GSK.”
Handsome commemorative plaques and other rewards were presented to these long standing employees at this ceremony. Apart from their contributions to the company, these awards recognise commitment to the company’s mission to enable people to ‘do more, feel better and live longer.’
GSK and its predecessors have been doing business in Sri Lanka since the late 1930s. A world leading pharmaceuticals and vaccines company, GSK is the only pharmaceuticals company to tackle the three ‘priority’ diseases identified by the World Health Organization (WHO): HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
