Daraz Sri Lanka earned the Great Place to Work® Certification, the most prestigious employer-of-choice recognition awarded to organizations globally, for the second consecutive year, re-affirming the company’s position as a one of the most sought-after employers that attracts and retains the best talents in the country.
Daraz was recognized for its healthy workplace environment that strongly upholds racial and gender equality. Having been polled early this year, to gain insights into work culture and overall employee feedback, 89% of Daraz Sri Lanka employees agreed that they were treated fairly regardless of their race, while 88% agreed that they were treated fairly regardless of their gender. Furthermore, 88% also stated that they were proud to be employed at Daraz.
Sharing his thoughts on this notable achievement, Daraz Sri Lanka Managing Director Mr. Rakhil Fernando stated: “We are thrilled about receiving this recognition as a great place to work from the leading global authority on work culture. Given the shift in workplace dynamics over the past two years, with more employees preferring to work from home, most workplaces are finding it challenging to keep the staff constantly motivated and creatively stimulated. Our approach at Daraz has been to create a fun and exciting workplace to keep the energy levels high. Receiving the Great Place to Work® Certification for the second successive year has only inspired us to further our efforts to help our employees grow both professionally and personally while engaging in meaningful work in a fun and stimulating workplace.”
The survey results also showed that Daraz scored high in employee satisfaction, with attributes such as the corporate image, management communications, fairness regardless of age, credibility, community engagement, camaraderie, business competence, and organisational health earning the highest employee ratings and scores.
“We are humbled by this achievement of being recognized by the Great Place to Work® institute for the second consecutive year. Daraz Sri Lanka has a unique, hybrid work environment that is flexible and supportive, and continuously provides teambuilding engagement opportunities to maintain a fun, healthy work culture. We have further enriched the workplace experience of our staff with initiatives that offer flexible working hours and ensure mental health and wellness while enabling team engagement through themed events during and after work hours. We are truly proud to be a safe place for anyone with passion and dedication to grow their careers, regardless of race, gender, age, or any other aspect,” shared Daraz Sri Lanka Head of Human Resources Ms. Shazmiya Jiffry.
