DIMO was recognised with a gold award at the SLITAD People Development Awards.
SLITAD People Development Awards are presented by the Sri Lanka Institute of Training and Development (SLITAD), which is a nonprofit organisation that promotes best practices in people development in the country. This year’s awards saw the participation of a large number of local private and public sector organisations out of which 23 were selected to the final round of evaluation. They were selected based on a criterion presented by the institute, which focused on ten key aspects. This framework was used to assess the organisations on aspects including business and people management strategy, effectiveness of management, learning and development strategy, performance measurement and commitment to continuous improvement as well as the organisation’s effort and innovativeness in training and development practices. An audit committee comprised of academics from the University of Colombo and an eminent panel of judges selected the recipients of gold, silver and bronze awards.
