AIA Insurance is has been recognised as a Great Place to Work (GPTW), in Sri Lanka for the eighth consecutive year.

The company was also adjudged the ‘Best Workplace for Women in Sri Lanka’ for the third straight year.

For 2020, AIA passed the rigorous measurements through analysis of results of the Great Place to Work Trust Index survey and Culture Audit questionnaire and scored among the best in the country, thus receiving this global recognition.

AIA’s Director HR Thushari Perera said, “Consistently winning this prestigious award is an indication of the emphasis we place on employee wellbeing. As a company committed to helping people live healthier, longer, better lives, we prioritize the health, happiness and wellbeing of our staff. This is how we have differentiated AIA as a great place to work for our employees and established ourselves as a superlative employer of choice.”

2020 was a challenging year for staff engagement due to the pandemic. Notably, AIA was able to transition smoothly to the Work-From-Home situation, with concerted efforts made to keep employees engaged and feeling supported.

AIA used online platforms such as MS Teams and Face book live to engage employees with helpful sessions on mindfulness and meditation and achieving that fine work-life balance when working from home. AIA also hosted the company’s first-ever digital Company Conference to celebrate employees for their commitment and contribution to the company.

Despite the obstacles posed by the pandemic and curfew, AIA was able to keep staff engaged and motivated throughout the year.
