The Year of the Monkey
iSoftStone North America’s parent company is headquartered out of Beijing China, with global offices spread across Shanghai, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Guangzhou. Here in iSoftStone’s North America offices, we like to pay homage to our parent company by celebrating some much loved Chinese traditions. One of these traditions is the centuries old celebration of Lunar New Year, a traditional Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the lunisolar Chinese calendar. We celebrate by hosting an in office feast featuring traditional Chinese dishes. We also hang traditional Chinese decor around the office, have delicious Chinese candies and sweets, and put out fun games and activities for employees to enjoy. In years past we’ve even participated in giving red envelopes, which are monetary gifts that represent good luck!
