STARBUCKS PROVIDES BACKUP CARE BENEFIT IN US
Starbucks’ U.S. employees have a new benefit – subsidized backup care for children and adults. The company says more than 180,000 employees will get up to 10 backup child care days each year to use when regular care is unavailable. In-home backup care for kids or adults will cost employees $1 per hour while care in a childcare center costs $5 per day. Starbucks is partnering with Care.com, a company that connects people to caregivers. Starbucks will also offer free senior care planning through Care.com.
