Payouts will be about $325 per worker
Computer maker Lenovo has reported that its CEO Yang Yuanqing plans to share at least $3 million of his bonus with workers for the second straight year. Lenovo
posted record sales for the year
and the company’s CEO plans to spread his bonus amongst 10,000 workers with payment amounts going to recognize worker contributions.
Lenovo spokesperson Jeffrey Shafer said that the total amount the CEO paid out would be about $3.25 million, up from
$3 million last year
“This is quite rare, especially for a chairman of a Chinese company, to use his personal money as a bonus to reward employees,” said Kirk Yang, a managing director at Barclays Plc in Hong Kong.

The shared wealth will be handed out to Lenovo staff in 20 countries with about 85% of those receiving money located in China. The average payment to individual workers at Lenovo will be around $325. While that may not sound like a lot of money, it is equal to about one month's pay for the typical city worker in China.
Lenovo currently has more than 35,000 employees around the world as of the end of March.

I agree, and it's amazing how little it takes to really endear your employees to you. I have a small business, and a dozen or so employees, and every the Christmas party is paid for by me personally, as do other occasional outings.
They're the ones who are truly critical to running my business, and I know it, so I take care of them. If only other CEO's realized it.
