Our friends at PetSmart Shanghai recently celebrated Belonging Week! Here were a few takeaways they had 😊

*please note COVID restrictions differ in Shanghai than in the US

  • “It’s another great time for our team seating together with free-chatting about the traditional festival, CNY and family…we realized our diverse backgrounds and different social customs and habits for, we are from different locations…the company makes us in one great team.” – Jason

  • “Glad to see Shanghai office retains the Belonging tradition and we cherish the moment that we can share all interesting things and options around different assigned topics. The theme of the Second Belonging is about Chinese New Year, and I’ve learnt so many amusing ways/styles to celebrate this traditional festival. What a profound and diversified culture in China! Associates also share stories about how their pets spending the holiday with them, that is a perfect illustration of our Values. Fun time and look forward to having the next round of Belonging.” – Aileen
