SL2College is a voluntary non-profit organization that aims to improve Sri Lanka’s knowledge and human capital pool by developing and retaining highly educated individuals. As part of this objective, SL2College launched the WorkInSriLanka web portal ( workinsrilanka.lk) which is designed to showcase Sri Lanka as an attractive destination for professionals and businesses.

The CILTSL which is a established global professional body, with over 33,000 members in over 30 countries, was established in 1985 in Sri Lanka with the objective of promoting and encouraging the art and science of logistics and transport and presently has over 1000 members in the transport and logistic fields.

Commenting on the partnership, the Secretary General of CILTSL, Major General (retd) Lionel Aluvihare said ” It is indeed a pleasure to join hands with WorkInSriLanka to develop Sri Lanka as a destination for professionals and business at a time where Sri Lanka also needs to stop the brain drain that is drastically affecting our economy as a developing nation”

Since the launch in May, the WorkInSriLanka initiative has found growing opportunities of building a solid brain gain platform. Several partners from both the government and private institutes have shown their support towards the initiative and are committed to building a stronger talent pool in Sri Lanka.
