In workplaces across Taiwan, a big milestone in the annual calendar has arrived. In the run-up to the Lunar New Year, the management organizes a “weiya”- a year-end company banquet. This catered feast is a time for employers to show appreciation for their employees. With the Year of the Dog now approaching, we too here at RTI, have had our own weiya banquet. Where does the tradition of this banquet come from? What do workers expect from a banquet? And why has this banquet become something workers look forward to all year long? Here to tell us is RTI’s Rachel Luo, whose hard work behind the scenes has helped give us at RTI many years of memorable banquets.
