Exceptional employees of the Teejay Group have been recognised and rewarded for performance, innovation and also for long service at a celebration of people and their contributions to Sri Lanka’s world-class knit fabric solutions provider, on either side of the Palk Strait.

The 2017 edition of the Teejay Achievers’ Awards, the most important event in the company’s employee calendar, saw top performing employees and the best departments being honoured with trophies, prizes and accolades.

“Our annual Achievers’ Awards demonstrate the depth of our commitment to the belief that people are the lifeblood of the company,” said CEO of Teejay, Sriyan de Silva Wijeyeratne.

Taking top billing among those honoured at Teejay’s spectacular awards ceremony in Sri Lanka were 25 top achievers in the different Employee of the Year categories, six innovators who came up with potentially game-changing ideas under the company’s All Ideas Matter (AIM) program, and many others who were recognised with Long Service Awards.

The CEO’s Awards were presented to two Chief Operating Officers of the Group, Pubudu de Silva and Rodney Arland, for their impact on the evolution of the company and for their dedicated service.

The winners of the Employees of the Year awards were Sajeewa Samantha Chandrasiri in the ‘Executive & Above’ category, Chiranga Chamal Bulathsinghala in the ‘Staff’ category and W. A. D. Saman Kumara in the ‘Associate’ category. Sajeewa Samantha Chandrasiri also led his Department remarkably well to win the prestigious Department of the Year Award.

A Special Award for Outstanding Leadership Achievement was presented to Upul Indika Nallaperuma - General Manager, Teejay India Operations, while a Special Award for High Performing Female Talent went to Gayathri Bandara – Assistant Manager, Merchandising.
