Starbucks Culture

High concern for people
High concern for performance
Looking to expand and improve
Yet care about employees and community
Social Mission

Best healthcare program and a focus on personal interactions
Preferential buying status for those who have high scores in best practices
Customer satisfaction, experience and strengthening the brand and loyalty
Donate to local causes and encourage community involvement
Will advertise coffee as fair trade even if it is not
Use hormone-added milk which counter's the mission they portray
How Starbucks counters these criticisms:
Fair Trade Certified coffee permanently on menu
Working on getting 100% Fair Trade Certified Espresso in US market
3 billion cups are thrown into landfills each year
Only 5% of the stores recycle the cups
Working on eco-friendly cups
Sell reusable cups that consumers bring in a receive a small discount

Partnership with Kuerig
Howard Schultz
Ethical companies do better in the long run
Short-term loss than losing core values

Wanted to build a company that cared
So he came up with this:
Health Care
Life Insurance
401k Plans
Tuition Reimbursement
Brings all social concerns together
Work environment was top priority

Health Care for 20+ hours
Benefits package with stocks, medical, dental and vision
Continued throughout recession
As an employee at Starbucks you don't just work there, you are a partner
Being a Starbucks partner means having the opportunity to be something more than an employee (#tobeapartner). Gigantic possibilities lie ahead—to grow as a person, in your career and in your community. To live the Starbucks mission and to be a leader. It’s the opportunity to become your personal best. To be connected to something bigger. To be meaningful to the world. And to be recognized for all of it. It’s all here for you.
