DIMO goes on eight years as a “Great Place to Work”

DIMO, one of Sri Lanka’s leading conglomerates, was recognized as one of the Great Places To Work (GPTW) in Sri Lanka, for the eighth consecutive year at the GPTW awards ceremony held recently at the Hilton Colombo.

Similar to previous years, DIMO was able to win multiple awards and took home four awards including the “Best Workplaces in Sri Lanka 2020” and “Excellence in People Initiatives - Inspiring” awards, together with Gold Awards for “Best PLC to work for in Sri Lanka 2020” and “Best Workplace in Extra Large Enterprise Category in Sri Lanka 2020”.

Although DIMO commenced operations over 80 years ago in the field of automobiles, during its long journey of continued success, it has expanded to stand out as a leading conglomerate that meets the varied requirements of individuals and organisations in the fields of engineering, consumer goods, education, agriculture and industrial solutions. The company views a ‘thriving workforce’ as one in which employees are not simply productive but are also actively engaged in creating a brighter future for both the company and themselves.

The tribe themselves have come to realize that the organization has the inherent strength to curtail the negative impact of any external forces such as an economic downturn or a global pandemic, without compromising on its workforce. As a result, in GPTW culture audits, DIMO was constantly on top by achieving the highest score in the area of ‘Developing’ for the past 4 consecutive years.

, Chairman & Managing Director of DIMO, Ranjith Pandithage stated, “While igniting and driving high-performing workplace culture, I along with the rest of the leadership team have had bright eyes towards addressing every aspect of our people’s lives. We have always fuelled our people to give their best, and we have also ensured that the organization gives back the best for them through exponential growth and exposure, both personally and professionally.”

“We have practised this to stay true to our EVP: Making Work Enjoyable & Rewarding and to truly differentiate DIMO’s Employer Brand. Therefore, to be continuously recognized for 8 years in a row for our conscious efforts is certainly an affirmation of the success of the DIMO Tribe and the guidance we have given them over the years. With every crown we keep collecting year on year, DIMO’s way of life just keeps getting better and remains a cut above the rest.”
