Incepted in year 2008 and initiated with the objective of developing the mutual relationship and unity between members, while lending a helping hand towards the welfare of members through financial aid and participation, the employee welfare society of SLT Manpower solutions (Pvt) Ltd has by now organized many programmes beneficial to employees island-wide.
The chief executive officer of SLT Manpower Solutions, Mr. Ranjith. G. Rubasinghe at his welcome speech explained the motive of the project. He mentioned that the “Sihina Niwasa” project was initiated through an idea that was brought up in order to build a house on an annual basis for a selected natural disaster victim or needy employee, currently deprived of a house. Thus the name implies bringing about a dream come true for those whom owning a house were merely a dream.
This project also brought up the opportunity for all members of the society to work as a team and develop their unity, trust and mutual understanding while extending a helping hand towards developing the living conditions of fellow members and their families.
