Revenue: $2.5 billion
CEO: Jie Zheng
For new hires at China Mobile Communications, starting work is a little like going back to school -- in a good way.
New employees turn in their homework -- or reports -- at the end of their first week on the job and are sent home with a note from the company, addressed to their parents, thanking them for cultivating such talent. (We're not kidding.)
One lucky employee is hailed as the telecom company's "top performer," and the best staffers get to have dinner with CEO Jie Zheng. It's all part of China Mobile's retention and development plan, which includes "Team Day," a "Spring Festival Party," and better benefits for better performance, all of which serves to motivate the company's 8,000 employees.
