Henkel Indonesia celebrates Chinese New Year

On 31 January, employees of all races joined their Chinese colleagues to celebrate Chinese New Year in festive style.

As employees arrived at the office, Lucky Lee, President of Henkel Indonesia, welcomed them with the traditional greeting, “Gong Xi Fa Cai”, and distributed red hampers containing Chinese cookies and good luck wishes. Then, employees gathered to enjoy a variety of Chinese delights, such as the traditional layer cake or Kue Lapis. All food was prepared in accordance with good standards to comply with the dietary requirements of all colleagues.

Lucky Lee said, “At Henkel Indonesia, we take pride in our diverse workforce. Appreciating cultural differences is a key pillar of an inclusive work environment, which was the main idea behind organizing the Chinese New Year celebration at our office. By giving our employees more exposure to other cultures, we are creating a more globalized workforce which is an important driver of the company’s success.”
