An all pervasive sense of jubilation and celebration prevailed recently at the Hameedia Group’s training room at Borupana in Ratmalana as members of the staff gathered for the “Bounce Back Celebration” to commemorate their victory in overcoming the Covid-19 pandemic.

This was the climax of a journey of perseverance and resilience as the company, along with its staff, celebrated bouncing back higher with renewed energy, higher ambitions and sales performance.

Different members of the management team spoke about how the Hameedia family used the learning learnt from the pandemic and forged ahead to become the first company in Sri Lanka to successfully go beyond drawbacks such as the lockdown of districts, to rise again. The well-attended event was all about energising the staff and to remind them of how the team has come a long way.

CEO Niroshan de Silva spoke of the different kinds of challenges Hameedia encountered during the lockdown period. He said, “We are here to appreciate and celebrate the journey of Hameedia. We have overcome different types of challenges over the years and the Covid-19 pandemic was one of them. With our pro-active team effort we were able to think and go beyond the pandemic. But this is not the end. This is just the beginning of a bright future for Hameedia”.

“In order to work hard, you need a great deal of positive energy to stay motivated and active. Being active and full of energy is, in turn, one of the vital characteristics of a good leader. Each and every one of us should possess leadership skills; which mainly includes high spirits and an abundance of energy. I hope that our team continues to work hard and stay motivated towards achieving all our goals”, he added.

The entire Hameedia team got actively involved in this exercise soon after which the company had a brief on how important it is to work together as a team and have a “Fun at Work” theme. It was revealed that Hameedia, Sri Lanka’s total menswear solution provider, aims to grow bigger and open more branches with time. The company has also planned more projects in the months ahead in different aspects of business and initiatives.

Deputy Managing Director Hussain Sadique said, “I can see that we have grown and achieved the necessary motivation to go even beyond what we have become today. But it is also important to have discipline in terms of work ethics. In order to be a good team with proper organisation, we must allow ourselves to practice discipline and proper time management”.

“We have now reached the point of being patronised by high-end individuals who have become customers of Hameedia. Our mission is to make Hameedia achieve iconic brand status by 2021. This should make all of us proud and happy that we are a part of such an esteemed company. In terms of growth, I believe that we should take the lead in steering towards the digital side of business since this gives us more scope to expand globally. We will continue to be efficient in terms of service, work and quality; and to maintain this, every team member’s cooperation is very vital”, he said in conclusion.

Published

on

To keep pace with the rapid expansion and increasing complexity of elderly home healthcare, training needs of home healthcare nurses must be identified and subsequent training programs implemented. English Nursing Care conducts training sessions on a weekly basis covering a variety of care needs for Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) such as diabetes. The World Health Organisation (WHO) record that NCDs are estimated to account for 75% of total deaths in Sri Lanka.

Furthermore, according to the Sri Lankan Ministry of Health “although people are living longer, they live more years suffering from disease and disability, mainly from NCDs; life expectancy at birth in Sri Lanka is 74.9 years but healthy life expectancy at birth is only 67.0 years.” This has a significant impact on quality of life.

English Nursing Care Sri Lanka works towards improving the quality of life of the elderly living with NCD’s by training nurses on the most advanced and developed methodologies brought through years of experience internationally and locally. Being responsible for the well-being of your loved ones is pivotal in the service they provide.
