Employee Appreciation Day At LinkedIn: Workers Share CEO's $14M Bonus
Just in time for the unofficial holiday, LinkedIn's CEO gave workers his $14 million stock bonus. (You might want to share this story with your boss.)By Katie Link | March 3, 2016
Nothing says "Happy Hump Day" quite like your boss giving all $14 million of his stock bonus to you and your co-workers.
According to Re/Code, that’s exactly what happened for LinkedIn employees Wednesday. CEO Jeff Weiner reportedly didn't take his yearly "equity package," instead opting for it to be put in a pool for his employees.
We did the math for you: LinkedIn reports it has around 9,200 full-time employees, so that gives each person roughly $1,500 worth of shares.
