Initiated in 2004, the NBEA has gained much recognition and prestige among the business community and maintains the highest standards of a well-structured awards scheme recognising excellence among businesses in Sri Lanka. 

Instrumental in receiving the NBEA honours was the vision of CIPM SL’s President, whose continued quest for excellence and promotion of Business Excellence Models has yielded impressive results for the organisation. Emerging as the winner, CIPM SL received this honour in the field of human resources surpassing the stringent evaluation criteria application. Respected as among the pioneering awards competitions in the country, NBEA accolades go beyond testing reporting aspects but instead recognise essential business practices and a sustainable business model. The model is based on seven vital criteria: Excellence in Strategy and Leadership, Excellence in Corporate Governance, Excellence in Capacity Building, Excellence in Performance Management, Excellence in Local and Global Market Reach, Excellence in CSR and Environmental Sustainability, and Excellence in Excellence in Business and Financial Results. 

The final evaluation comprised two stages, including the desktop evaluation and a final interview by the panel of judges.
