"Be the change we wish to see" is the theme of the Airport Familiarization Programme designed to give awareness to a large majority of our staff to see and learn the airport operation from Porch to Deck and Deck to Porch. The first group consisting of 40 employees commenced their one-day guided tour from the Departure Lobby on 16th December 2016 at 9.30 am. The group was a cross section of the employee group who underwent the awareness programme on "New Development Projects of AASL".
This occasion was graced by Mr Yohann Jayarathne who first threw the idea of conducting a programme of this nature to a committee appointed for the purpose. The committee headed by Head of Human Resources, has evolved the original idea into a full concept which would promote staff engagement and create a sense of “oneness”.
All participants were presented with a "Be the change we wish to see" Badge before commencing the tour. Tour conductors appointed by various operational Divisions helped the participants to receive a clear idea about the integrated airport operation. At the end of the fully active day participants returned with happy memories.
