Starbucks - Two Examples of Financial and Non-Financial Methods of Motivation
A couple of good examples here to use when illustrating the opportunities for some creative financial and non-financial methods of motivation. In this first article, we learn that Starbucks UK employees are to be given free shares in Starbucks Inc as part of a revised remuneration package. Will the so-called “bean stock” act as a motivational force for staff on a day-to-day bases?
In the second example, Starbucks staff and store managers are taken to work in a fairtrade coffee plantation to better understand the start of the supply chain that stretches from the coffee bean to the skinny latte in-store.
Lots of scope in these two articles for students to compare the methods being used.
We'll use this Series to curate resources that support teachers and students preparing for the BUSS4 Section A Research Theme on Manufacturing in the UK (June 2015). These resources will complement our popular BUSS4 Section A Toolkit on Manufacturing and the BUSS4 Exam Coaching Workshops which also include sessions on Manufacturing.
