SRI LANKA EMPLOYERS’ SYMPOSIUM 2014 “BREAKING BARRIERS FOR BETTER WORKPLACES”

The Employers’ Federation of Ceylon (EFC) celebrates its 85th anniversary this year. The EFC was set up in 1929 as an Organization that would have the expertise to give advice to Employers in maintaining better relationships within the workplace. Today, human capital is considered as the most vital asset of an Enterprise. Therefore, maintaining excellent relationships at the workplace between Management and employees is imperative. In doing so, we need to eradicate all barriers that would be obstacles towards this end. In keeping with this objective, the EFC will conduct its 3rd annual Symposium on 2nd and 3rd October 2014 at the Waters Edge, Battaramulla on the theme “Breaking barriers for better workplaces”.

    The Employers’ Federation of Ceylon (EFC) celebrates its 85th anniversary this year. The EFC was set up in 1929 as an Organization that would have the expertise to give advice to Employers in maintaining better relationships within the workplace. Today, human capital is considered as the most vital asset of an Enterprise. Therefore, maintaining excellent relationships at the workplace between Management and employees is imperative. In doing so, we need to eradicate all barriers that would be obstacles towards this end.

    In keeping with this objective, the EFC will conduct its 3rd annual Symposium on 2nd and 3rd October 2014 at the Waters Edge, Battaramulla on the theme “Breaking barriers for better workplaces”.

    The keynote speaker at the Symposium will be Mr Brent Wilton, Secretary General/CEO of the International Organization of Employers (IOE), Geneva. The IOE is the international body which has a membership of more than 150 Employers Organizations around the world. In addition to Mr Wilton we will also have overseas resource persons from academia as well as from industry.

    We attach herewith a tentative programme which outlines the sessions at the Symposium.

    A significant feature of the Symposium will also be the launch of “Compliance +” a Sri Lankan Employer Branding which we will promote amongst all Sri Lankan Enterprises. This would involve an audit conducted by an independent international Audit Company in relation to employment related Standards. More about it will be known at the launch.

    All participants at the Symposium will also be invited to the launch of Compliance + at the end of the sessions on the first day (2nd October), and to cocktails thereafter.

    The Symposium will also show Case Studies of good corporate practices in relation to breaking barriers and building work places. A compilation of the case studies in the form of a publication will be released and given to all participants who attend the symposium.

    We are extremely happy to announce that the Sri Lanka Employers’ Symposium this year is sponsored by the following Companies
