(CNN) — “Fifty Shades of Grey” is paying off in green for some workers this holiday season.  

The New York Times reports publisher Random House is promising each employee a $5,000 bonus to celebrate a profitable year.  

Much of the company’s success this year could be linked to the wildly successful “Fifty Shades” trilogy.  

The first of E.L. James’ books has been on the top of the New York Times paperback best-seller list for 37 weeks already. 

The e-books have been in the top five for even longer.  

Bonuses are expected to be issued in employees’ next paycheck.
