The Human Resources Management Unit focuses on the Union's vision in the management of its human resources by developing, adopting and implementing human resources polices, systems and management approaches to ensure that a complement of high quality, competent and skilled staff joins and is retained in the Sri Lanka office and in co-located regional programmes with high levels of productivity and job satisfaction.

In pursuance of the objective of maintaining high competence levels amongst the staff in all areas, the SL Office conducts training needs assessment in conjunction with the Performance Appraisal process. This annual process which encompasses taking stocks of current staff development needs and emerging needs helps the organization to source and deliver high quality professional individual and collective developmental prgrammes with a view to reach its desired position.

We believe in individual brilliance and synergized efforts in multiple fronts to deliver what IUCN stands for. Hence, we continually engage our staff in diverse activities designed to stimulate innovative mindsets and ability to harness creativity alongside excellent interpersonal relationships and team spirit.
