Shine Like a Diamond, the year-end celebration of Union Assurance, was held recently at the BMICH Colombo, where the Union Assurance family gathered to be enthralled by the memorable night of fun.
The Chief Executive Officer of Union Assurance, Jude Gomes, praised the staff for their exceptional performance over the years, which has earned them the crown of ‘Shine Like a Diamond’. He noted that the Team proved their fortitude despite operating in a very challenging year.
He stated, “Our champions have propelled Union Assurance to new heights, scripting many noteworthy landmarks along the journey. I’m extremely proud and inspired by their performance.”
“UA Ball signifies the employee value proposition of the company and its unique culture. It is special as we have had long breaks of working remotely mostly for the last couple of years,” stated Imtiyaz Aniff, the Chief People Officer of Union Assurance.
He added, Union Assurance is a winning organisation where employees can realise their full potential. The Company values its people and appreciates and rewards them in various ways, including new opportunities to learn and grow, a positive work-life balance, and a culture that fuels creativity and innovation.
A highlight of the event was the recognition of 26 employees for their long-standing service of 25 years. This bespeaks that the Company has been successful in instilling in its employees a strong sense of belonging, togetherness, and purpose. The night, which was filled with exciting entertainment activities and great music, recognised the exceptional work of our employees during the most difficult times.
