Starbucks Chief Executive Officer Howard Schultz last fall urged corporate leaders to help accelerate job creation. To lend a hand, Starbucks began selling $5 wristbands with proceeds going to the Opportunity Finance Network, a group of community development financial institutions that lend to small businesses in disadvantaged communities. The company kicked off its “Create Jobs for USA” program with a $5 million contribution to the network. Within two weeks in November, more than $1 million in individual donations were collected.
“I reject the old approach that the role and responsibility of a corporation is only to make a profit,” Schultz told CNN. He said he feels a moral obligation to hire people now that Starbucks’ business is improving, adding that companies that balance profitability and social conscience will be rewarded with customer and employee loyalty.
