Yes, we continue to keep this tradition and are seeking Management's approval for higher amount value just for this year (2021) as there will be no CNY get-together lunch. We are a regional Sales and Marketing office of an electronic component manufacturer - ML
It's a past practice that we will continue this year as well - Ivy

We don't give angbao to employees. We only give oranges and pineapple tart. We are a US MNC - Vivian
Any company that i go to, they will give red packets every new year. I mean private companies, not government. it's a small token, a blessing, you don't have to put too much an amount. some seniors in the company, if they are married and have kids, they will also give ang pao to the younger people in the company. So, i think giving ang pao in the company is not a big deal - Kelly
Yes but a small amount only like $10 - Belinda
Token cash - CT
$100 - JL
