HNB Assurance PLC Recognized Among the Top 10 Women Friendly Workplaces in Sri Lanka

HNB Assurance PLC (HNBA) has been recognized among the Top 10 Women Friendly Workplaces in Sri Lanka at Women Friendly Workplaces Awards 2021 organized by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and Satyn Magazine. The event was recently held in Cinnamon Grand, Colombo. Sharing his thoughts, Chief Executive Officer of HNBA and its fully owned subsidiary, HNB General Insurance Limited (HNBGI), Mr. Prasantha Fernando stated, “In today’s society women play multiple roles, taking on many challenges to support their families and children. However, most women find it both difficult and challenging to balance responsibilities of their respective profession with the traditionally female-oriented duties required by them at home. With this thought in mind, HNBA and HNBGI has initiated several work-life balance programs to support women in our workplace to reach greater heights in their career, as well as to break the glass ceiling. Creating a gender equal workplace is not a social imperative but its all about good business sense”. Mr. Fernando continued, “We believe that women’s talent pool is a vital part in our organization and over the years we have seen a higher participation of women in our workforce as well as in higher leadership positions across both organizations. The Group will continue to enhance its programs and initiatives focused on women, further creating a safer and happy work environment”. The Chief Human Resources Officer of HNBA and HNBGI, Mr. Dinuka Pattikiriarachchi stated, “This recognition is indeed a great honor to all of us at HNBA and HNBGI. The HNBA Group’s vision has always been to create a work environment promoting equality, inclusion and diversity and this recognition is a testament to our commitment to women across the country. As I always believe, it starts with creating a human friendly workplace. That is the foundation for gender equity. As an organization our effort is to make sure that we don’t look for a man in a women’s body. We need to respect the fact that women are different and that’s a good thing. That given the opportunity, they will do an equally better job as their male colleagues. As organizations and leaders, it’s our duty to do everything possible to create that opportunity”. Mr. Pattikiriarachchi further added, “In a way we are fortunate to have a Chairperson, and a Board which sets very high standards when it comes to Human Resource Management in general. We have a committed and dedicated set of leaders who aspire to live our values day in and day out. We have a system which has zero tolerance on deviations. I believe it requires all these elements to work in coherence to achieve what we have achieved today. But we are conscious, that it’s only a milestone and our journey never end. We need to continue to do better than yesterday, every day“. HNB Assurance PLC (HNBA) is one of the fastest growing Insurance Companies in Sri Lanka with a network of 63 branches.
