Sampath Bank is pleased to announce its Annual Platinum Corporate Partnership with The Sri Lanka Institute of Directors (SLID), effective from July 2023. This strategic collaboration signifies a milestone in advancing Corporate Governance in Sri Lanka, as both organizations join hands to promote and advocate good governance in the private and public sector.
We take great pride in being recognized as an Annual Platinum Corporate Partner of SLID, and this partnership underscores our commitment to drive positive changes in corporate governance practices. Representing Sampath Bank in this pivotal partnership will be Mr. Tharaka Ranwala, whose wealth of experience will be instrumental in ensuring the success of this collaboration.
Sampath Bank through this partnership will be able to facilitate organizations adopt ethical and transparent practices, and be a responsible corporate citizen whilst optimizing shareholder value.
SLID, renowned for its steadfast commitment to fostering effective Corporate Governance practices, boasts a membership of over 900 influential business leaders from both the private and public sectors. Sampath Bank through this partnership will also be able to nurture a culture of excellence in today’s boardrooms while cultivating a dynamic new generation of Boardroom Leaders prepared to face the challenges of tomorrow.
Both organizations serve as pioneers in guiding forums dedicated to educating and enhancing the capabilities of their members in their respective roles. With more than eight forums currently in operation, SLID maintains a prominent position in this endeavor. For instance, the Audit Committee Forum plays a pivotal role in providing invaluable insights to support members in effectively fulfilling their roles on audit committees. This is achieved through knowledge exchange among peers, the dissemination of pertinent information, and a focused approach to key performance areas.
Such initiatives significantly contribute to the enhancement of effective governance and sustainability within organizations, ultimately elevating the economic environment. Similarly, Sampath Bank, in partnership with SLID, eagerly anticipates advancing the promotion of essential competencies required for effective Corporate Governance.
