High Performers are recognized and rewarded according to their individual Performance levels and also their team contributions. We at all times encourage very dynamic teams to work towards achieving common goals. The Performance Evaluations Process is not merely being carried out to rank employees, but it goes beyond, where the Appraiser and the Appraisee engages in a continuous “quality conversation” and the employee is supported to bridge gaps or short comings in order to come up to the required standard of Performance. It is in fact a continuous evaluation process.
The LOLC Group maintains at all times an open door culture where employees have access to their superiors at all times and hence creates a very democratic culture. The staff is comparatively young and able to think strategically and outside the box. The opportunity to do their best in such an environment attracts the young talent, pool to the group.Winning a Silver Award at the HRP Awards is a true testament of the best practices adopted by the Group and we are honoured to be set amongst the very best in this league, closed Mr. Uluwaduge.
