EFC program change mindset on State sector jobs
The Employers’ Federation of Colombo (EFC) will launch a program to
change the attitudes of school leavers and graduates, towards private
sector and public sector job opportunities.
EFC Director General Ravi Peiris told Daily News Business the Sri
Lankan mindset is always to get employment in the public sector
considering its job security.
“They should realize that the private sector is also strong and well
established in the country and it is the private sector which is going
to create business opportunities and creats employment opportunities,”
he said. The private sector will create a large number of employment in
the future and the private sector has the capacity to generate more jobs
than the public sector.
There is also a notion that Government sector jobs are easy and
comfortable with many holidays and less work unlike in the private
sector. If Sri Lanka is to develop these attitudes have to be changed
drastically and the youth in our country should concentrate on
developing their skills required by the private sector.
The EFC jointly with Unilevers invite job aspirants to follow this
program which will be advertised shortly.
