We are recognized as a Best Workplace in Sri Lanka for the 8th year in a row
Oxford College of Business (OCB) was ranked one of the top 40 Best Workplaces in Sri Lanka for the 8th year in a row. The rankings are put together based on an independent employee trust audit carried out by the Great Place to Work® organization, a global authority on workplace culture, which recognizes organizations with the most exceptional workplace culture practices.
In what has been a challenging year for companies across the world as they grappled with business disruptions and remote operations, Great Place to Work® recognized OCB’s open and transparent work culture, and its relentless focus on employee wellbeing, as being key drivers of instilling exceptional trust among its employees.
The top ranking in Sri Lanka follows OCB’s global accolade for being ranked 9th as one of Asia Best Workplaces in the Small and Medium Category in 2021.
Mr. Malindu Ranasinghe, Director/CEO of Oxford College of Business said, “While I give all glory and honour to Christ alone for this achievement, we are honoured and proud of the trust placed in us by our employees and of being recognized as the top place to work in Sri Lanka. This award is a testament to our continuous efforts to foster a conscious culture where employees are engaged and feel supported to thrive. Our employees are our biggest differentiator, and we are committed to creating an environment where they feel empowered, and purposeful in all aspects of life.”
This year’s awards also saw Oxford College of Business also being recognized as one of the top 10 Best Workplaces for Women in Sri Lanka (for the third consecutive year) and won Gold in the Small Enterprise Category in Sri Lanka.
