In May, Starbucks announced more than $1 billion in investments to uplift partners (employees). The investments were a direct result of dozens of collaboration sessions across the country where hundreds of retail partners (employees) and executives met to talk about frustrations, hopes and ideas and to co-create the future of Starbucks.

The sessions are ongoing as Starbucks continues to reimagine its future. Some of the commitments made in May are completed as of today, and others are in development and taking shape based on the ideas and feedback from partners along the way.

Here’s an update on where those commitments stand.
