It is the 5th consecutive year in which the survey is being conducted using data from a substantial number of small, medium and large organizations in the IT, BPO and KPO sectors.

Chairman, SLASSCOM Jayantha De Silva shared his thoughts regarding the successful completion and publishing of the survey results stating, “SLASSCOM’s Compensation and Benefit Survey has fulfilled the need of a compensation and benefits benchmarking tool for IT and BPM industry in Sri Lanka, very well. The survey is in its 5th consecutive year and is therefore in a position to provide a narrative and illustration of the expansion of the IT /BPM industry during the past five years.  SLASSCOM’s consistent effort in conducting this survey has resulted in a reservoir of information which is extremely useful for policy makers and all other stakeholders of the industry.   It has been a great experience partnering with PWC in this endeavor and I wish to thank all participants of this process for their cooperation”.
