Let Starbucks Employees Have Unnatural Hair Colour UK and Ireland
I would like Starbucks (from the code being passed now in the USA) to finally bring the code over to the UK, Ireland and Europe as in comparison to tattoos, it should be nothing.
The Starbucks mission statement is: "Our mission: to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighbourhood at a time."
Starbucks is place where partners are unique and should be able to show their true selves. How are they going to do it if they can't colour their hair how they want? Sometimes colour shows the person's true self. Allowing tattoos was a good first step but now let's allow unnatural hair colour.
Why is this important?
Variety in a workplace is always great! Wouldn't you want to have some red, purple, green, or maybe pink in your hair?
From my personal Barista experience I have had countless others be let down by the new code not being taken into action since it was passed last summer within the USA. Countless other Barista roles in other companies (Costa, Nero etc.) have allowed unnatural hair for years, so why shouldn't Starbucks?
To keep with the changing times this should be a no-brainer for the company to appeal to it's customers and keep its loyal employees happy and be able to show their uniqueness.
