Colombo, December 13, 2020: Allianz Insurance Lanka Limited (Allianz Lanka) was recognized as one of the nation’s foremost employer brands at the Sri Lanka Best Employer Brand Awards 2020. Allianz Lanka’s Chief Marketing Officer, Mangala Bandara and Human Resources Business Partner, Shanaka Weerasekera, accepted the award on behalf of the insurer at the virtual awards ceremony held recently.
Hosted by the World HRD Congress, the Sri Lanka Best Employer Brand Awards seek to recognize organizations from across the country that have been effective in attracting, retaining, and developing talent through strategic HR and marketing communications efforts. The winners were picked by a panel chaired by Dr. Indira Parikh, former Dean of the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ahmedabad, India’s premier management school.
“We are honoured to be rated amongst Sri Lanka’s foremost employer brands. This recognition further attests the effectiveness of our efforts to engage with and support our team members who constantly go above and beyond the call of duty to keep raising the benchmark of excellence in our industry,” said Gany Subramaniam, Director / Chief Executive Officer, Allianz Insurance Lanka Limited and Director, Allianz Life Insurance Lanka Limited. “As a global financial services provider, our human resource strategies and initiatives focus on being the employer of choice for the best talent from around the world and effectively supporting our teams via several development programs and opportunities. We will continue to work towards empowering our teams to rethink our business and dare to make a difference with the aim of helping secure people’s lives and giving courage to our customers for what’s ahead.”
In Sri Lanka and around the world, Allianz, is committed to securing the lives of its team members. The insurer’s ambition as an employer is to become the home for those who dare by creating a culture where people and performance matter. In line with this, Allianz Lanka too has a wide range on ongoing employee engagement, appraisal and rewards initiatives.
Earlier this year, the insurer recognized team members from across its Life and General Insurance businesses for their commitment to service excellence under its ‘Trailblazers of Allianz – We care A to Z 2020’ program. These Trailblazers were nominated by Allianz Lanka’s management team from across the company for going above and beyond their call of duty, especially during the COVID-19 related lockdown, to deliver world-class service to Allianz Lanka’s policyholders.
