Fashion Bug named a ‘Great Place to Work’ for second year

Following last year’s accolade, Fashion Bug was recognised as one of the Top 25 of Sri Lanka’s Great Places to Work for the second consecutive year, and also won the silver award in the Medium Enterprise category.

In a press release, Fashion Bug stated that as an equal opportunity employment provider the organisation is gender-balanced as well as ethnically and culturally diverse, where diversity is regarded an asset. The organisation boasts of members from all religious and ethnic backgrounds, in all levels of operation, and has also provided employment opportunities to differently abled persons in a bid to empower them in being independent and build their lives.

“Creating an employee centred and growth-conducive working environment is built into the DNA of Fashion Bug. Being named a ‘Great Place to Work’ for two years in a row is a reassurance to us that we are on the right path. In addition, this whole process has given us an opportunity to review ourselves and recognise areas of improvement. It is essentially a part of rebuilding ourselves to be better and give the best to all our stakeholders,” stated Fashion Bug CEO Shabier Subian.

“To be named a Great Place to Work in Sri Lanka and be in the Top 25 is indeed an honour for us, especially when Fashion Bug is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. This is perhaps the most fitting accomplishment for us as a company in a significant year like this. It is a depiction of what Fashion Bug has stood for, for the past quarter-century; 25 years of celebrating diversity, empowering our employees, and creating one of the best fashion retail brands that is always among the top best in the island,” added Fashion Bug CEO Aqeill Subian.
