A LOHAS Work Culture
In order to create a "work happily, live seriously" LOHAS workplace culture, members of the LOHAS group diligently planned many different kinds of activities, including celebrity keynote lectures (Li Shuang-Qing, Julian Baggini, Lu Su-Wei), music appreciation lectures, eco-environment parent-child educational activities, and a cross-divisional five-events competition. In addition, LOHAS points cards were made and handed out to each employee to encourage participation in each event, assisting employees to create a healthy work-life balance.
