CIPM Sri Lanka – one of the nation’s leaders in human resource management, recently conducted its three-day Supervisory Development Program which has been designed to provide a sound working knowledge of supervisory management and enhance leadership skills. The program is a signature workshop of CIPM’s Corporate Training Division and was conducted at CIPM Head Office ‘HR House’ in Colombo-5. 

The program was facilitated through Senaka Muhandiramge and Sarath Jayasinghe who are experienced HR, employee engagement and business-related resource personnel. Over 25 supervisory level staff representing leading companies in the corporate and public sectors, and NGOs participated in the first CIPM three-day Supervisory Development Program.       

“Supervisory level staff plays a significant role in the effective management of an organisation. Proper leadership and motivational skills at this level have far-reaching effects on overall efficiency and effectiveness. A well-trained supervisory level in an organisation will be the starting point for the empowerment of the frontline in order to be a responsive company,” said CIPM Sri Lanka President Dhammika Fernando.   

The CIPM Supervisory Development Program aims to enhance and strengthen the capabilities of frontline management and ensure that they gain the skills, knowledge, and competencies to effectively lead, engage and develop their teams, and face challenges of the business on a day to day basis.
