LinkedIn CEO Gives All Employees an iPad mini


Business Insider reports that LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner surprised employees by giving every one an iPad mini.

LinkedIn had reported record revenue of $303.6 million in Q4 2012, up 81% from the year-ago period, which easily beat Street estimates. 

So it was a small gesture from the CEO for their hard work.

Here’s what LinkedIn spokesperson had to say about it:

We wanted to acknowledge the hard work and accomplishments of all of our employees in 2012. During today’s biweekly All Hands meeting, we surprised our employees with iPad Minis as a small gesture of the company’s gratitude for their contributions.

Darain Faraz, a communications manager at LinkedIn UK tweeted about it:

Weiner gave them the 32GB iPad mini and not the entry level 16GB iPad mini.

A total of 3500 iPad minis were given away, which works out to approximately $1.5 million including taxes.
