Business Insider reports that LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner has gifted every LinkedIn employee with an iPad mini.
Here's what a spokesperson had to say about the gesture, which was first tweeted by Darain Faraz, a LinkedIn communications manager:
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.
The iPad minis were handed out an an all-hands meeting to each of LinkedIn’s 3,500 employees, presumably as a small reward for LinkedIn's record Q4 earnings of $303.6 million. 3,500 iPad minis carry a total retail price of just over $1.2 million, tax included.
