Unilever Sri Lanka was recently awarded the Occupational Health Award (2007) for Asia which is an award competition between regional manufacturing units of Unilever.

“Adding vitality to life is the mission at Unilever, so looking after the health of its employees is paramount. We’ve been in Sri Lanka for 70 years – since 1939, and we’re really proud of the contribution Unilever has made to Sri Lankan society by adding vitality to their lives,” said Sandamali Perera, Human Resources Director at Unilever, Sri Lanka, in a statement issued by the company.

Open to all Unilever plants around the world, the honour of the award is bestowed on the unit which displays the best practices and record of health. The purpose of the award is to give each Unilever operation and impetus and ample room for improvement n the practice as a proactive initiative rather than a corporate directive, it said.

Unilever Sri Lanka conducts several on going programmes for all categories of employees- management, staff and work force headed by Dr. Vishaka Ariyarathne and the Unilever medical team. They are devised to address mental and physical health issues of individuals and aim at good nutrition, exercise and increase in mental resilience as key determinants.
