Current CEO: Howard Schultz
While the company has become famous all over the world, few people may realize the origin of Starbucks. The founders, three individuals from Seattle, wanted to sell high quality coffee beans and were inspired by the book Moby Dick. It wasn’t until 1982, when the current CEO, Howard Schultz, had the idea to sell coffee drinks in addition to the beans. The original owners rejected the idea, and Schultz started his own company devoted to providing hot and fresh beverages. In 1987, Schultz bought Starbucks and renamed his coffee shop to this well-known title. He then proceeded to expand the operations and helped make the company become one of the world’s most famous establishments.
Thanks to these initial efforts by Howard Schultz, many people have enjoyed Starbucks careers in order to fulfill their professional obligations. Choosing this type of employment opportunity allows a unique way to provide new and exciting taste sensations to the connoisseurs of coffee. Working at Starbucks Corporation is more than just a job; it is a way of life. Starbucks has helped to set a trend of operating in a sustainable nature that protects the Earth’s natural resources while allowing people to reap from the benefits that the world provides. With the company continuing to be a trendsetter, people have changed their way of life to better protect their environment.
Unlike other companies, Starbucks culture encourages treating coworkers as friends rather as simply someone that is employed at the same company. This not only conveys a strong sense of community to the customers that visit the store but also allows baristas to take pride in the work they perform. Instead of using term employees, management refers to the workforce as partners. This helps to communicate to everyone that it takes each individual to make the company successful. With an eye toward improving the world in which we live, the Starbucks workforce is all part of one big family.
Not only do partners at Starbucks have the distinction of working for one of the top 100 companies according to Fortune magazine, but they also enjoy the fruits of Starbucks benefits. With a modern approach to the unique and diverse nature of the people that spend their lives improving Starbucks services, the benefits that are offered are meant to celebrate human life. Competitive pay and insurance packages as well as recognition of families of all genres, each plan is designed specially.
