Gamer.LK has been named one of 2022’s Great Places to Work, by the global authority on workplace culture, Great Place to Work (GPTW) making it Sri Lanka’s first Esports company to receive such certification. Gamer.LK has risen rapidly to become one of South Asia’s best Esports organisations, owing much of its success to a flourishing workplace.
Earning the ‘Great Place to Work’ title involves deep analysis by the GPTW team on a company’s workplace culture, management and employees’ mindsets after which a company is scored on its ‘Trust Index’ and awarded the title. The Gamer.LK team’s shared passion for Esports and gaming culture has created an atmosphere of fluid communication and infectious enthusiasm which is evident with Gamer.LK receiving over 90% on the Great Place to Work Trust Index.
“We at InGame Esports & Gamer.LK have always had a work culture quite unlike any other. A company built by gamers, we’ve found the perfect balance between work and play – where the lines often blur in the best ways possible! We felt it was important to maintain this fantastic work culture as we went head-on into our growth stage, and engaging with Great Place to Work helps us with that goal” said Raveen Wijayatilake, CEO of InGame Esports & Gamer.LK
