Recently, Our Company Global Regency, the parent company of GlobalTQM had its annual dinner in Shenzhen and we also celebrated our 20-year Anniversary. Every year this is the perfect occasion for employee recognition as deserving employees get rewarded for their efforts in front of the whole company, and the team gets to reflect on the successes and lessons of each year.

During the event, Our CEO – David Hoffmann’s speech uplifted the spirit of the employees for the coming year. Also, he distributed red envelopes to all the employees as it’s a most recognized tradition of Chinese New year. 2018 is the Year of Dog as per Chinese zodiac which begins on February 16th, 2018 and ends February 4th, 2019.


Red envelopes or hongbao in Mandarin and lai see in Cantonese are small red and gold packets containing money given to children, family members, friends and employees as a symbol of good luck. In Chinese culture, the color red is associated with energy, happiness, and good luck. In the modern world, the idea of offering ‘Lai See’ during Lunar New Year is similar to bestowing Christmas gifts in Western culture to family, friends, colleagues and support staff. Lai see is distributed during the first 15 days of Lunar New Year, and the ritual is brought to an end at the Lantern festival.



I personally enjoyed this yearly event and eagerly anticipated winning the lucky draws, one of our favorite part of the event. Many employees won price vouchers, electronics, hampers, Big screen TV’s etc.

The entire event was a complete success and all of us had enjoyed ourselves very much! We ended our night with many good pictures. Together, we took the opportunity to connect, had fun, and celebrated notable accomplishments of our people. We hope everyone in attendance had a great time, and we look forward to an even more successful 2018.
