The Sinhalese and Tamil people in Sri Lanka annually celebrate the Sinhala and Tamil New Year, which is a significant cultural occasion. The Sinhala and Tamil new year, sometimes referred to as the sun festival, has long been a ritual in which the Sun God is honoured. With such a lengthy history, the festival serves as the start of the new year and is the greatest time to learn about Sri Lanka’s fundamental customs and rituals while also taking part in enjoyable activities and traditional games that you cannot find anywhere else. Therefore, we at Oak took this fantastic opportunity to promote a joyful and welcoming workplace environment.
The celebration began at the Oak Business Centre with the boiling of milk and lighting of the traditional oil lamps, which is a typical Sri Lankan tradition to invoke blessings and ward off evil spirits, followed by a feast of many traditional Sri Lankan foods and Aurudu sweets. Then came a number of Aurudu games and exercises that were meant to foster teamwork, communication, and friendly competition among Oak staff menbers. This culture encouraged by Oak demonstrates the dedication to fostering a supportive workplace that values inclusion, teamwork, and fun.
We at Oak values our employees and understand the necessity of creating a welcoming and helpful atmosphere.
