NSB among top 10 women-friendly workplaces

21 November, 2021

The National Savings Bank (NSB) was recognised among the top 10 Women-Friendly Workplaces at the first Women Friendly Workplace Awards (WFWP Awards) 2021 jointly pioneered by Satynmag.com, and CIMA Sri Lanka was held at the Cinnamon Grand recently.

The awards were audited by Ernst & Young to ensure a fair and accurate result.

NSB, being one of the leading banks in Sri Lanka, always believes that banks have a substantial role to play in empowering women in all aspects.

NSB encourages and empowers women in the Bank by providing enormous opportunities to provide a better service to the nation while being successful in the role that they play at the home front as well.

NSB encourages women in the society by supporting them to inculcate the habit of savings and thereby encourage them to be financially independent and shoulder the multiple responsibilities entrusted to her as a woman with confidence.

Despite the heightened uncertainty due to the impact of Covid-19, the performance of the Bank over the years was characterised by strength and resilience with the leadership of the Chairperson Keasila Jayawardena.

The workforce, with a 55% female contribution, helped to achieve the highest ever Profit Before Tax and Profit After Tax in 2020. Sixty-three percent of the workforce between 18 and 35 years of age are females.

Program Manager, Women in Work - Sri Lanka at IFC, Sarah Twigg was the chief guest while the guest of honour was  Senior Additional Solicitor General, Farzana Jameel PC.
