TSG is a Great Place to Work 2018 Company!
We are extremely proud to announce that Third Space Global has been certified a Great Place to Work 2018 company. The 2018 GPTW certificate was officially presented to Third Space Global’s CEO Roshan Nilaweera by GPTW Sri Lanka’s CEO, Kshanika Ratanayaka on Monday 14th May at our office in front of all our celebrating staff.
Ms. Ratanyaka commented that this is an exceptional achievement given the uniqueness of Third Space Global. Unlike many of Sri Lanka’s successful companies, we are relatively young having only been set up in June 2015.
Since 2015, TSG has rapidly scaled from 25 to 250 staff whilst growing its business volume 17 fold. Despite our youth, we have remained focused on building a strong culture based on our core values of Caring, Commitment, Integrity, Innovation, and Excellence. This has allowed us to quickly adapt and grow as we scaled. But it is not just the company’s age, our workforce are unusually young too with an average employee age of 23.3yrs. Third Space Global continues to break with tradition as our female staff represents 62% of the workforce which is nearly twice that of the disappointing 36% female representation in the national labour force.
Ms. Ratanyaka also commented on how exciting it is for Sri Lanka to have Third Space Global provide education services to the UK in such an innovative method. Currently, TSG is the only company in the world that deliver one-to-one Maths online teaching directly to a state school education sector. As parents don’t pay, we are able to work with state schools and at-risk children who need our support, thus allowing us to progress towards our social mission of:
WE SEEK SOCIAL CHANGE BY CULTIVATING A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF THE MOST AMBITIOUS TALENT TO MAKE EFFECTIVE ONLINE TEACHING MORE ACCESSIBLE THAN EVER BEFORE.
For Roshan, this award is deserving recognition of our staff and culture at TSG. Continuing on our journey, TSG intends to build upon this success by expanding its CSR programmes in collaboration with Sri Lanka’s Department of Education and Commercial Bank whilst also, looking at the development of a new technology platform to create jobs and opportunities across the whole of Sri Lanka.
