Ceylon Biscuits Ltd., (CBL) was awarded the Gold Award for Social Dialogue in the workplace, under the Large Scale Manufacturing category, at an awards ceremony held by the Department of Labour recently.

This award recognises CBL’s extensive contribution to encouraging social dialogue in the workplace and maintaining strong and consistent employee relations.

Home to one of Sri Lanka’s best-loved brands ‘Munchee’, CBL has always aimed to place employee relations at the fore of its operations to ensure industrial harmony and, this award, awarded to CBL for the second time, recognises these efforts.

The award ceremony was organised at the Department of Labour under the patronage of Minister of Skills Development, Employment and Labour relations Dinesh Gunawardena and the Country Representative of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to recognise the winners of the completion held during the latter part of the year 2019.
The CBL Team receiving the award comprised of members from the Management, Trade Union and CBL Welfare Society.

Ceylon Biscuits Ltd., Director and CEO Nalin B. Karunaratne said: “This award recognises the contribution of Ceylon Biscuits in introducing and implementing policies and strategies to encourage social dialogue, collective bargaining and reaching collective agreements at the workplace at an enterprise level, to achieve greater industrial harmony.
“Fostering strong employee relations is a priority for CBL, and we conduct many activities to engage our CBL Family, including conducting training programs, workshops and seminars, promoting social dialogue and workplace cooperation and coordinating with trade unions and employees. These practices that promote social dialogue and collective agreements have resulted in minimising industrial disputes.”

Upholding effective social dialogue in the workplace has been pivotal to the growth of CBL’s flagship brand Munchee and its strong positioning, in both the local and international marketplace.
