FMT(four-man team); the revolutionary OBT/Adventure training facilitator, shared its profits donating certain surgical tools and goods required by Cardiac theaters like Pleural Chest Drainage bottles and Suture threads, to the Cardiac theater of Lady Ridgway Hospital, Colombo on 28 October 2013.
We share ten percent of our profits with the society, which is one of our business principles since inception, NirodhaDayananda, Human Resources Executive who did the major role in coordinating the donation spoke to the press. Initially we wanted to assist few cardiac patients who are in the face of going through expensive surgeries. But when we were searching for patients, SisterPriyadarshiniwho is attached to the Cardiac theater of LRH convinced us to get into this memorable donation, Nirodha added.
believe in the fact that, companies should share its profits with the society. SMEs have a big role to play as the country’s economy consists with majority of SMEs. It is certainly a myth if a company taking time to grow enough and waiting to be mature to share its profits with the society, MadhushanRaigamage, the Chief Executive Officer of Monsoon Leisure and Adventure Lanka (Pvt) Limited expressed his views to the press.I humbly request all SMEs to think twice on their profit sharing strategies. We understand that capital is important when growing, but at least if an SME could contribute LKR 50,000 a year, just see how the society gets benefited. It’s unbelievable. Madhushan added.
Job Factory (Pvt) Limited which is the parent company of Monsoon Leisure and Adventure Lanka (Pvt) Ltd is popular in sharing their earnings with the society. This is not our first time in the social work, so far we have offered more than ten Scholarships for unprivileged students including some children of war heroes, during past two yearsNirmalaDasanayaka, representing Job Factory (Pvt) Limited at the occasion explained to media.
We are not at the maturity stage still, yet FMT has decided to keep ten percent of its profits dedicated to the society rather than waiting for decades to become mature and spend, Madhushan further added. We are now on the penetration stage and hopefully coming out with a breakthrough product which could turnaround the industry. Monsoon Leisure and Adventure Lanka Ltd owns the brand(FMT)four-man team. The learning, based on a simple theory in Management Learning; “Comprehension-REFLECTION-Application” and FMT provides a platform for individuals, companies and organizations to reflect their desired comprehension of learning needs/goals in an adventurous environment and support them in application.
Answering a question raised by a journalist, Madhushan said that “Four-man team concept was originally conceptualized and implemented by the western Armies to ensure high level of synergy when engaging their enemies in highly fluid battle scenarios with a high operational tempo. It is simple, flexible, fast and focused. The concept was effectively executed by Sri Lankan Special Forces especially during the Humanitarian operations .Here at Monsoon Leisure and Adventure; through FMT (Four-man team) exploits the same concept focusing on achieving high level of synergy and communication amongst individuals/employees and facilitatesthem to convert groups into Teams.
We have proven our ability to turn groups into TEAMs. We do not conduct just management games nor adventure sports. We receive a group of individuals and take them through all the five stages of TEAM Creation, Madhushan explained to the press. Every moment is linked to some kind of theoretical learning. That is our uniqnessMadhushan rapped up the success story.
