LinkedIn Provides iPad Minis to All Employees

While LinkedIn is primarily recognized as a platform for professional networking and job searching, it seems that being an employee there has its perks too. Today, the company’s CEO distributed 3,500 iPad minis to every staff member.

Yes, every single person working at LinkedIn received an iPad mini from CEO Jeff Wiener, as shown in the image above.

This generous gesture is not just about giving away gadgets. The iPad is known to enhance productivity in the workplace.

With every employee equipped with an iPad mini, LinkedIn is poised to streamline document distribution and perhaps integrate more iOS apps into daily operations.

Interestingly, LinkedIn is not alone in this practice. Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of YouSendIt and a former colleague of Weiner at Yahoo!, also provided iPad minis to his employees during the previous holiday season.
