FT Seylan Bank among Top Ten

Seylan Bank was recently honoured at Sri Lanka’s first-ever Women-Friendly Workplace Awards 2021 (WFWP), pioneered jointly by the Satyn Magazine and Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Sri Lanka. Seylan Bank was named one of the Top Ten Places to Work for Women at the award ceremony that took place on 2 November 2021, at the Cinnamon Grand. 

The bank was assessed based on how supportive and empowering they were to women at work. The WFWP Awards are widely recognised as strengthening women’s roles in the workplace in Sri Lanka and reinforcing Sri Lanka’s commitment to the United Nations SDG 5, which targets gender equality and opportunity. “We are really grateful for the opportunity provided by Satyn Magazine and CIMA to showcase our commitment to equality. Seylan Bank has always pushed for equal opportunities and a diverse workforce. 

We are happy that 46 per cent of the employee base at Seylan are women and many board committees within the organisation are led by female Directors. 20 per cent of the company’s Senior Management and 34 per cent of the management team is made up of women. 20 per cent of the entire employee cadre at Seylan is managed and led by women. Seylan has been a safe and welcoming environment for women to work, and the company has provided equal opportunities for women to advance in their careers. Seylan is also actively working on ensuring more female representation at the Bank in the future,” said Amanthi Motha, Chief Manager-Human Resources at Seylan Bank PLC.
