To enrich the cultural life of employees and create a warm and harmonious working atmosphere, on May 21, Ipsos launched “Decorate Our Home, Promote Public Welfare,” an ikebana activity to show its deep “affections” for its people. Dozens of employees from various departments accepted this “confession of love.”

In the event, the trainer first introduced in detail the characteristics of flower materials required for ikebana, how to maintain and identify these materials, as well as related ikebana methods and techniques. Next, participants followed the instructions of the trainer and made their own flower baskets that fully proved their ingenuity with roses, gentians, campanula, cape jasmine leaves, nigella damascena, etc. The venue of the event was full of the fragrance and overwhelmed with romantic atmosphere, where everyone made their flower baskets out of their preferences and aesthetics, and enjoyed themselves to their hearts’ content.
