At Starbucks, we’re guided by our Mission – to nurture and inspire the human spirit, one person, one cup and one neighbourhood at a time.
At its core, our Mission is about caring for our partners. Partner wellbeing is at the forefront of every decision we make as a business and never has this been more the case than in the past year as we’ve navigated COVID-19. Wellbeing is a fundamental part of our humanity and the pandemic has only further highlighted its importance.
For this reason, we’re thrilled to share that Starbucks will be adding Headspace to the support we provide partners in this region to promote positive mental wellbeing. This adds to the support already available, which includes Partner Life – a confidential counselling, information and advice service for partners and their families, available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, online mental health training for managers and Mental Health First Aiders who provide a point of contact for partners who wish to talk and are experiencing mental health issues or emotional distress.
Headspace is a wellness platform and app that specialises in and teaches mindfulness and meditation techniques. It is a science-backed meditation tool, with over 20 published studies. Headspace meditations have been shown to reduce stress, increase happiness and improve focus.
EMEA partners will be provided with a Headspace subscription as a free benefit, giving them access to hundreds of themed sessions and easy, guided meditations on everything from stress and sleep to focus and anxiety.
We know that mental health needs are diverse and we are committed to continuing to add meaningful support. But sometimes, just taking the time to pause and rest the mind can be enough to feel a little better in the moment.
