After a record drive which had seen Lenovo almost knock off perch topper HP as king of the computer manufactures, Yuanqing was rewarded for his efforts with a nice fat $3.14 million dollar cheque to add to his impressive compensation of close to $14 million dollars.
But instead of shopping for yachts, properties or supercars, he decided to give it back to the people that were ultimately responsible for Lenovo's success, the employees, all 10,000 of them (give or take a dozen either way).
Now $314 dollars for each employee doesn't sound like a lot, but considering Chinese residents earn anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 a year, $314 dollars would make a huge impact to these employee's personal lives, and could only improve work morale in what is already an extremely volatile environment.
Something I'm sure most of us wouldn't be too quick to give away.
It is not known, however, whether Chinese Government owned Lenovo "advised" Mr Yuanqing to distribute his bonus among the company's workers or whether the decision was entirely his own.
