Starbucks Hires Elderly Staff, Embraces Diversity and Inclusion

The American coffee chain Starbucks on Friday announced the opening of a new cafe in Jalisco, Mexico, which will be exclusively operated by old age staffs.

This is the second Starbucks café in the region to hire staffs aged between 52 to 66; the first launched last year in Mexico City.

“We have become the first job experience for 80% of our partners because we believe in them and have designed a personalized career path,” said Diana González, Head HR, Starbucks Mexico.

Starbucks, had partnered with the National Institute for Elderly People five years ago, is aiming to hire 120 senior workers by 2019. The coffee chain has hired 14 workers at the Jalisco outlet.

“We believe in senior citizens who seek new work experiences. We are a multi-generation company that embraces diversity and inclusion, and we are thrilled to continue fostering a well-balanced work environment that includes both young partners and senior citizens,” added González.

The coffee chain also mentioned that creating opportunities through its employment program is part of Starbucks’ essence.
