“Sapumal Thibbotuwawa, who was presented with the Inspiring Leader award for his exemplary leadership capabilities, was recently appointed a Human Resources Director to Fonterra Thailand – our latest export to the global Fonterra world.”
In total, 22 awards were presented to top performers and business partners with every part of the business being recognised.
The Sales team walked away with the most prestigious award of the night, the Champion Function Award.
“Our team of passionate, results-oriented sales experts are some of the best in the country. They have done fantastic work to completely transform the function and make sales a science,” said Ms. Jayamanne.
On the night, a group of over 100 employees across company levels and functions also had the chance to showcase their hidden talents on stage.
Through an entertaining five-part segment titled “Infinite Talents”, keen team members owned the stage with their professional performances that kept the audience on their feet.
“Our culture is focussed on building an environment that not only fosters their career development, but their personal growth and passions as well,” said Ms. Jayamanne.
The Infinite Talents segment included a live band, group singing, group dancing, drama and an organisation-wide fashion show.
Following a company-wide talent search and auditions in September, teams went on to be mentored by experts in the entertainment industry, emerging after a rigorous schedule of rehearsals as professional performers that stole the show.
