Excelling on and off work

Virtusa launches 'Virtusan+' employee recognition programme

Virtusa Corporation announced the launch of "Virtusan+," a programme designed to stimulate, enhance and recognise talent of all those who make Virtusa the IT hub in Sri Lanka.

Virtusan+ is a programme in which the company identifies internal talent and recognises, supports and guides the employee to reach the limelight in an area of excellence-be it sports, photography, art, performing arts or any other non-work-related field. The programme provides opportunity to boost individual talent and recognises individual employees for off-work accomplishments.

Director HR - Sri Lanka Advanced Technology Centre who also overlooks HR for the larger of the two business units for Asia Ishan Dantanarayana said, "Our most valuable asset is our people.

We acknowledge them for their exceptional talent, innovation and creativity in both professional and individual platforms. Virtusa's core values - Pursuit of Excellence, Integrity, Respect and Leadership - encourage all employees to enjoy a work-life balance.

Virtusa encourages a team and performance-based culture, with performance as the top driver for growth and reward. The company holds that team performance is greater than the simple aggregation of individual members.

Software QA Engineer Nadeesha Masachchi known as the "Queen of Strategy" in Virtusa who excels in chess said, "Logical thinking and an analytical mind have helped me to make the correct moves in both my job as a Virtusan and my favourite pastime-chess. Having captained the Girls High School Kandy chess team to win the 2000 National School Chess Championship, she promotes chess at Virtusa through the Virtusa Chess Club.

Winner of the annual Virtusan singing competition, "VirtuStar 2007," and member of the popular youth band 6th Lane, Tharaka Karunanayake, Senior Software Engineer said, "Virtusa has supported me exceptionally in enhancing my singing talent. I look forward to opportunities within the organisation to please my audience."

Companies, especially in the IT industry, today believe in nurturing the whole individual, including talent outside the workplace. The benefits of diversity, career development and training, along with a balanced social life through Virtusa clubs and events, reinforce Virtusa's HR practices exemplified in its Gold award at the recently held HRM Awards 2007.
