Starbucks will offer a series of new benefits, including paid sick time for retail partners, paid parental leave expanded to non-birth parents, a wage increase and more. These offerings will total more than $250 million for more than 150,000 partners.
Kevin Johnson, Starbucks president and chief executive officer shared the following letter with all partners on September 11, 2017.
Starbucks has a long legacy of putting our partners (employees) first. We were among the first companies to offer comprehensive health benefits and equity to those who work just 20 hours or more a week– it’s why we are called partners.
