How did Starbucks grow from one shop to over 28,000?
Right from humble beginnings the founder of Starbucks, Howard Schultz, believed, “We are not in the coffee business serving people, but in the people business serving coffee.”
A great workplace reflects a great Employee Experience. The results of a remarkable and sustainable Employee Experience are better profits, productivity, customer success, innovation, creativity, engagement, employee health… in all a better business.
