Standard Chartered Sri Lanka named one of the 10 ‘Best Workplaces™ for Women in Sri Lanka’






Standard Chartered Sri Lanka was recently recognised by Great Place to Work® as one of the 10 ‘Best Workplaces™ for Women in Sri Lanka’ in 2021, the bank said in a media release. The bank was evaluated in areas related to non-discrimination and fairness with respect to gender, opportunities for career growth, professional development and recognition, involvement in decision-making, regard for both physical and mental health in the workplace, and work-life balance. 


Commenting on the bank’s efforts to ensure gender equity at the workplace, Bingumal Thewarathanthri, Chief Executive Officer, Standard Chartered Sri Lanka said, “Our unique diversity is a powerful asset and we’ve managed to unlock its potential by implementing the necessary policies and practices to motivate more females to be part of Sri Lanka’s workforce. We are proud to champion women in the workplace with 33% of the Country Management Team and 37% of the Country Leadership Team made up of female employees.’


Last year, Standard Chartered Sri Lanka achieved a gender balance milestone of 50:50 as a result of the bank’s initiatives under its People and Diversity & Inclusion strategy. One of the key programmes to support the advancement of women is a unique empowerment network, ‘W3’ – Women Win at Work. The W3 provides a platform for women to focus on their health and well-being, professional growth and the inclusion of females in the bank as well as in the local community.
