DFCC Bank was recognized again as one of the ‘Top 20 Employers in Sri Lanka’, employing the highest number of Chartered Institute of Management Accountant (CIMA) Sri Lanka members in their organization.

The ceremony was held as part of the CIMA President’s Dinner at the Shangri-La Hotel recently.

CIMA Sri Lanka plans to continue the awards as an annual fixture to strengthen partnerships with employers around the country. The winners were selected based on the members’ employer details on the CIMA member database (MyCIMA). DFCC Bank was jointly awarded third place with Central Bank of Sri Lanka as one of the top CIMA employers in the country, while no second place award was presented. DFCC Bank has been a strong proponent of CIMA and continues to consistently recognize and recruit CIMA-qualified candidates to its talent pool.

CEO, DFCC Bank Lakshman Silva says, “The Bank has had a long and fruitful association with CIMA Sri Lanka and we believe the qualification is critically aligned to the real and emerging needs of the marketplace. Over the years, we have found CIMA-qualified employees to be technically sound, creative and tuned into the needs of the Bank and the wider industry, which speaks volumes for the course content. We look forward to strengthening our bonds with CIMA Sri Lanka even further in the future.”

The Bank has explored a wide retinue of people development tools over its years of operation; for example, it has been a Gold Partner of CIMA since 2019 and a member of the CIMA Corporate Partner Program.
