Bravo, Starbucks for partially funding the first two years of an employee’s online university education and for fully reimbursing the final two years [“Starbucks will pay tuition for many employees to finish college,” Business/Technology, June 15].
Starbucks gives its employees the tools to do a good job, trusts that they will consistently uphold the organization’s philosophy and is now offering the added incentive of even more tuition reimbursement.
And, yes it gets better: The company will not require any commitment to the organization from an employee once he or she has graduated. Bravo, again! The corporate end has not forgotten its humble roots. Starbucks has heart, soul and wisdom.
