Aitken Spence Hotels has spent Rs 7 million to establish a well-equipped women’s lodging facility in Heritance Kandalama in the creation and promotion of a job setting as an equal opportunity employer.
Worldwide, the tourism sector produces revenue and jobs. The world tourism sector is allocated 1 in 10 jobs in total in 2018 and 1 in 5 new jobs created in the past five years, according to the global statistics published in the World Travel and Tourism Council in March 2019.
It has also developed numerous possibilities in Sri Lanka in both direct and indirect terms.
But women’s representation in the field of tourism is significantly small, in keeping with worldwide statistics.
The President of Aitken Spence Hotels Stasshani Jayawardena said “The choice of the company to invest Rs. 70 million in infrastructure reflects its commitment to enhancing our instant access to our societies, and the dedication to the improvement of Aitken Spence Hotels in Aitken Spence is a signature that Aitken Spence Hotels have been a company which values and promotes equality and non-discrimination.” “The launching facility can accommodate over 40 women and provides three categories of space–for managers, supervisors, and non-leaders. We hope that this work will boost female representation within our workforce. This ladies ‘ lodging has all the facilities for the convenience of its staff. It is comparable to the layout of a guest room. The facility also has two popular lounges for relaxation and rest.
