Starbucks Achieves Pay Equity in the United States
Published to CNN on March 21, 2018
Starbucks uses several tools to make sure bias doesn’t impact how much employees make. The company regularly checks for compensation gaps among employees, and uses a calculator to determine starting pay rate targets based on experience. It doesn’t ask job candidates about their salary history, and the company analyzes raises to make sure they’re fair.
It is working with women’s organizations like Billie Jean King’s Leadership Initiative and the National Partnership for Women & Families to help guide its efforts.
