In this sentence 送上 means what?? I think is means 'send = 送 to attend = 上(a series of lectures) = 一场讲座' but maybe it is just 送给??

据报道,某石油化工公司前不久举办了一场心理知识讲座,为近百名员工送上了一把找到工作快乐和取得成功的“心灵钥匙“。

送上,送给 both means send.

Two differences:

1.送上 is more polite。

  1. in different sentence structure。

a. 为 someone 送上 something。

b. 送给 someone something。

This sentence equals to ... ... 送给近百名员工一把找到工作快乐和取得成功的“心灵钥匙“。

reply to the comments.

心灵钥匙 is a description of 讲座,it is a metaphor. This lecture is the 心灵钥匙。

examle 学校组织了一次军训活动,为广大师生送上了一次军旅体验。

军训活动 is the 军旅体验。

  • How do the lectures come into this? The employees first attend the lectures, don't they? '公司为员工举办一场讲座,然后发给员工一把‘灵心钥匙’ 这样的意思?

  • @Pedroski "心灵钥匙" is metaphor. That is to say the lecture acted like a key for the staff to access the success. In other words, the lecture enlightened everyone's soul. Make sense?

  • Aha, so the lecture, not the company, gave the staff 'enlightenment'. This part is really a relative clause '...lectures, which .....' 为近百名员工送上了一把找到工作快乐和取得成功的“心灵钥匙“。

送上 - send

送上 is usually used in situation where things are delivered humbly / 'with a heart'. You will use 送上 when sending a gift or a blessing for example.

送给 - send to

Since it means 'sending to', in most cases it is followed by the person / party receiving the 'thing' being sent. I.e. It is not practical to use in your example.

Also I believe it is a term in conjunction with 收下, as a term used by the receiver of the things you have just 送上.

送上

KEY

[ v ]

◊ deliver (to a superior)

◊ present (to a superior)

◊ send (wishes, etc.)

so we have:

送上了一把.......钥匙

send/deliver/present - a - key

you could, as you suggested, even replace 送上 with 送给 here (meaning wise, not grammatically).
