Tata Starbucks gives Transportation Benefits to its First-of-its-Kind Employees with in India. Today, Tata Starbucks partners (employees) in India can receive special financing support to purchase a two-wheeler vehicle for professional or personal use.
Tata Starbucks Two-Wheeler Program provides partners with a range of financial benefits designed to enhance independence and create more affordable transportation options.
“Partners are the heartbeat of Starbucks, and we know that transport is a key concern for many. We’re proud that this program will be able to provide partners with a range of options for their daily transport needs.
We hope the program gives our partners additional peace of mind during
their commute and throughout their daily lives,” said Navin Gurnaney, ceo, Tata Starbucks Pvt. Ltd.
As India’s urban population continues to grow, public transportation remains a key challenge. In a survey of Tata Starbucks partners, reliable transportation was among the top areas of concern.
Tata Starbucks created the program to empower partners in India by creating easier, more affordable ways to become vehicle owners and improve their commuting experience.
Tata Starbucks will provide partners who opt in to the program with a salary advance to cover the down payment for their chosen vehicle, as well as reduced rate loans and discounts on a range of different models, including electric and second-hand vehicles. For full-time partners with a tenure of more than two years, the company will also contribute towards vehicle down payments.
In addition, partners can apply for financial support to purchase new two-wheeler vehicles, benefit from discounts on electric vehicles, as well as on used and refurbished vehicles according to their preference.
Those looking to upgrade their existing vehicle can also sell it
directly through the program and receive a discount on a new vehicle.
All partners that have worked for the company for a minimum of six months can take part in the scheme. Tata Starbucks is also offering educational road safety workshops to all partners who
sign up to promote safe driving and driver responsibility.
The Tata Starbucks Two-Wheeler Program builds on Starbucks long history of supporting partners in India through industry-leading benefits, including a company-wide, five-day workweek – a first-of-its-kind initiative in the industry in India– as well as comprehensive medical benefits, counselling, education and wellness programs, among others.
