In the largest collection of employee experiences in Asia, over 3.3 million employees from across 16 countries in Asia and the Middle East were surveyed to determine the Best Workplaces in the region. 99x was among just 14 SME organizations selected from Sri Lanka from assessments conducted over the past two years.
“Over the years we’ve witnessed that satisfied and happy employees drive business results. We believe in first looking after our employees, who in turn will look after our customers. This was proven in 2020, when the pandemic struck and we continued business as usual, driven by our people-first workplace culture. To be ranked on these indexes by Great Place to Work is a brand-new achievement for us each year and we are extremely proud to be listed once again,” stated 99x Founder and CEO Mano Sekaram.
The Great Place to Work model considers workplace culture from two perspectives: The employee perspective – where the employees’ perceptions of the workplace experience are averaged using the Trust Index survey, and the manager’s perspective – where the quality of interactions intended through people practices established by the management is evaluated using the Culture Audit tool.
“These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees’ trust and create a great workplace that is driven by meaningful values, effective leaders and the intent to maximize human potential – critical metrics that anyone considering working for or doing business with 99x should take into account as an indicator of a high-performance culture,” said Great Place to Work Sri Lanka CEO Kshanika Ratnayake.
99x adopted a proactive stance from the early days of the pandemic, from rapidly shifting its people to a work from home model even before the country went into lockdown last year to keeping its primary focus on protecting all jobs at any cost.
The company has been listed as a Best IT/ITeS Workplace in Sri Lanka in 2021 for a second consecutive year and is a Best Workplace for Women in Sri Lanka for two years in a row.
Headquartered in Sri Lanka, 99x is a technology company co-creating well-engineered, innovative digital products for the Scandinavian market.
