Starbucks, things we did not know...

Sarbucks. One of the worlds most famous coffee company's. The butt of many an over expensive coffee joke. In my mind the great American success story. A company created by possibly one of the greatest businessmen of our times. This company has managed massive growth globally and yet has systems in place to take care of employees locally. I have had the pleasure of being friends with a VP at Starbuck for many years and have been privy to some inside information from time to time that has given some insight to the man that started it all and has returned the company to the top. Howard Schultz has done with a massive corporation what few have ever achieved. Here are some of the things that besides good coffee the corporation does for its partners (employees). More than 70% of their U.S. partners (employees) are students or aspiring students. They want to help. Supporting their  partners’ ambitions, they believe that this is the very best investment Starbucks can make.
Below are just some of the programs accessible to those partners.

College Achievement Plan
A first of its kind collaboration with Arizona State University, we’re offering all part- and full-time benefits eligible U.S. partners full tuition coverage for every year of college to earn a bachelor’s degree. Partners receive support from a dedicated team of coaches and advisors, 24/7 tutoring on a variety of subjects, and a choice of more than 50 undergraduate degrees through ASU's research driven and top-ranked program, delivered online.
