Hayleys Plantations won the award for Great HR Practices at the Institute of Personnel Management (IPM) National HR Conference 2018. The award was presented to Hayleys Plantations sector in recognition of its pioneering efforts in developing a modernised and extensive system of Human Resource management encompassing every level of employment within the organisation under the umbrella of its flagship initiative: ‘You Are Identified’.

Hayleys Plantations, Managing Director, Roshan Rajadurai said, “Finely balanced Human Resource Management is very much at the heart of our success at Hayleys Plantations. Through the integration of digitized systems from the field level of operations upwards, we have not only been able to gain visibility into individual employee performance, but also share that information within the organisation.

“This has enabled us to provide employees and managers with a clear measure of performance. These innovations have enabled a vibrant, performance-driven culture across Hayleys Plantations, and we believe these are examples that must be amplified and emulated moving forward.”

Hayleys Plantations sector Deputy General Manager, HR & Corporate Sustainability, Anuruddha Gamage said, “By providing employees and management alike with accurate, reliable data on daily performance that is updated in real-time, we have created a tamper-proof system for measuring the output of our employees. This enables them to trust that they are being compensated fairly according to the effort they put in, and generally the response has been extremely positive.

“Because employees at every level are rewarded for strong performances, we are able to incentivize our best workers and reward them for their efforts, leading to a highly motivated, and driven workforce. The success of these initiatives is amply demonstrated by the high yields, and overall performance of our plantations sector, particularly when compared with industry averages.

These efforts were further emphasised by the performance of Hayleys tea harvesters who won the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places at the first ever Sri Lanka Tea Board ‘Best Tea harvester’ all-island competition, including district level winners as well.
