MANO SEKARAM
Co-Founder & CEO

“For us, the ‘people-first’ attitude that we stand by at 99X Technology has been invaluable in creating a  great workplace, where we have empowered our employees to be ‘Leaders Without Titles’ to drive  business goals. Our open and fun work culture has had a tremendous impact on our success. Taking part  in Great Place To Work surveys periodically allows us to check the heartbeat of the company.”

DIRK PEREIRA
Director/CEO

Union Assurance PLC

“We are pleased to be recognised as a Great Place to Work for the 5th consecutive year. As UAL celebrates 30 years of success, we strongly believe that we have the best team in the industry to take the company to even greater heights. GPTW has given voice to our people, and enabled us to measure and improve employee engagement, direct energy towards organisational growth and benchmark against local, regional, and global best practices to create an enduring organisation where people identify UA is as ‘more than just a work place’.”

Ranjith-Pathirage

RANJITH PANDITHAGE
Chairman/ Managing Director
Diesel & Motor Engineering PLC

“We continue to obtain feedback of our employees through a credible, confidential and structured manner by annually taking part in the Great Place to Work survey. We do this because we are self-critical and we do not want to be complacent about the ‘employee experience’ we create.”

Why Create a Great Workplace Culture?

Sustaining a High Trust Culture leads to a High Performance Organization.

Listing as one of the Best Workplaces enables organizations to be recognized as employers of choice.
