Aqeill Subian, Director at Fashion Bug,commenting on receiving this award said, “The team at Fashion Bug consistently focus on implementing the best practices possible. It is a great accomplishment to be ranked as the 7th best place to work in Asia, competing with large enterprises in the region. To be told that we are the only fashion retailer in this category to win this year is definitely an enriching experience. We are proud to be a truly Sri Lankan brand to be recognized internationally. The moral boost from this coming out of the COVID pandemic is phenomenal, and rest assured we will work harder to bring pride to our organisation and the nation to be amongst the world’s best places to work”
Fashion Bug is also a company that is run by millennials and therefore it is a place that understands what the current generation wants from their place of work. While it is a difficult job to toe the line between freedom for their employees and getting the job done, Fashion Bug maintains a good balance between the two, all tied together by a respect for their employees and ensuring that their goals are all aligned with the goals of the organization. It is for this reason that the company was also awarded the Best Workplaces for Millennials Award 2020.
