Chipotle is following in Starbucks' footsteps and offering more benefits to all of its employees.
Chipotle has prided itself on its "people culture." To further the aims of that culture, the chain will now offer all employees full tuition reimbursement, sick pay, and paid vacation time. These benefits were previously only for salaried employees, but, starting July 1, all hourly and entry level employees will also receive these benefits.
Chipotle is not alone in its push to take better care of its employees. Entrepreneur reports that Starbucks expanded its tuition reimbursement program to cover four years of education, and McDonalds has similarly extended its education program and vacation policy. As a small business, should you take a leaf from these companies' playbook and expand your employee benefits too?
