Commencement of Business 开工吉日 2021

The Chinese pick an auspicious date and time after the Chinese New Year celebration to commence business or work. This is known as "Kai Gong Da Ji" - 开工大吉 as it is believed beginning on an auspicious day and time will bring prosperity and smooth progress and good fortune for the year ahead.

On the 1st day of work, bring along with you some candies, fruits and/or food that are sweet (avoid spicy or sour), cakes or cookies to share with colleagues to symbolize harmony and joyous relationship for the year.

Many bosses would distribute red packet (containing some money), also known as ang bao, to staffs on the first day of commencement of business as a gratitude and encourage better performance in the New Year.

Lighting up the office especially the signage area, laughter and gathering of staffs in the office will boost the "yang" energy which will lead to better work performance and good relationship.
