Tata Starbucks introduces a transportation program for its women partners

Tata Starbucks Private Limited launches its latest partner (employee) benefit program in India, placing the safety, comfort and aspirations of its women partners at the forefront.

The new ‘Women Transportation Program’ offers its women partners working in closing shifts, a seamless commute facility to safely travel back home post night shifts, empowering them to make career choices that support their growth.

Partners are the heartbeat of Starbucks and we will always keep partner care at the centre of how we choose to do business. With The Women Transportation Program, our aim is to support our women partners in every possible way and at every step of their journey, empowering them to grow and progress in their careers,” shared Sushant Dash, CEO, Tata Starbucks Pvt. Ltd. 

This program provides women partners a chauffeur-driven car, enabled with a GPS tracking system and equipped with other safety measures for any emergencies.

The program, which has currently been launched across Mumbai and Bangalore covering few stores, will be extended to a few more routes in the coming years.

The café chain has also launched its ninth all-women store on 8th October, 2021 at Jio World Drive in Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC). This new store is led by female partners who are Coffee Masters and is the brand’s first store in India to have a four-tap nitro capability.

The new initiative supports the aspirations of Tata Starbucks’ women partners by offering them the flexibility to opt for a shift that meets their professional and personal requirements, thus encouraging an inclusive and supportive work environment.

“The launch of Tata Starbucks’ Women Transportation Program is a moment of pride for us and marks an important milestone in our journey of supporting and empowering our partners. This initiative is another step towards Tata Starbucks’ efforts to achieve 40 percent gender diversity by the end of 2022”, added Nabamita Banerjee, Head, Human (Partner) Resources, Tata Starbucks Pvt. Ltd.
