Lenovo CEO Shares $3 Million Bonus With Workers

Yang Yuanqing, founder and CEO of Chinese PC maker Lenovo, will share $3.25 million from his bonus with some 10,000 staff in China and 19 other countries. ‘Most are hourly manufacturing workers,’ Lenovo spokeswoman Angela Lee said. ‘As you can imagine, an extra $300 in a manufacturing environment in China does make an impact, especially to employees supporting families.’

In its annual review last year, Lenovo raised Yang’s base pay to $1.2 million and awarded him a $4.2 million discretionary bonus and a $8.9 million long-term incentive award. Yang owns 7.12% of Lenovo’s shares, equivalent to about $720 million in stock.
