The list was determined amidst one of the largest collections of employee experiences with over 3.3 million employees surveyed from across 16 countries in Asia and the Middle East to determine the Best WorkplacesTM in the region.
H-Connect is the global business solutions provider for the HirdaramaniGroup and celebrates nine years in October 2021. Within its short span, H-Connect has been recognised by Great Place to Work® in quick succession – twicein the Best WorkplacesTM in Sri Lanka list as well as Best WorkplacesTM in IT/iTES for two years, in addition to being Great Place to Work CertifiedTM for two years.
“Our employees are our lifeline and their satisfaction is a vital part of our business success. We are thrilled with this recognition of H-Connect’s work culture. We strive to create an inclusive, dynamic work environment for our employees and this recognition is welcome testament to the work we have been doing, especially in the context of the pandemic and changing and challenging work environments which have been in flux,” commented Akshay Hirdaramani, Director, H-Connect.
“The survey helps us identify key drivers of employee perception and areas of importance to our employees, it helps us arrive at focus areas to leverage our strengths and identify any gaps to achieve business objectives and cultivate a beneficial work environment. We seek to improve year on year and build a workplace where fairness, credibility, camaraderie, pride in work and respect are key drivers and where employees will thrive,” Ayesha Ediriwickrama, Head of HR, H-Connect said.
Due to COVID-19, physical and mental wellbeing were key for both employee and employers. Companies were also evaluated on their ability to create an inclusive workplace experience.
A key strength at H-Connect, as highlighted in the survey, was a high level of camaraderie, welcoming atmosphere and cooperation amongst teams. The company’s focus, warm atmosphere and fun at work, growth and development and investment in employee career trajectory were also areas which had ranked high in the assessment. Good facilities and provision of resources and equipment was also highly perceived by employees.
