Howard Schultz, the Starbucks CEO, said that despite doing everything to encourage employees to return to work at office, they aren't coming to the "level" he desires.

Schultz, the interim CEO who came after Kevin Johnson left, said that bringing staffers back to the office and away from remote work has not been productive.

Schultz, 69, stated that despite my efforts, "I have been failed to get our people back into office" I've tried to plead with them. "I said that I would get down on my knees. I'll do push-ups. You can do whatever you like. "Just come back to office."

He said, "No, they're not coming back at my level." We are a collaborative and creative group, as you all know. "I realize I am an old-school person, and this is a new generation."

Schultz, despite his frustration, has not required corporate employees to return to work. Instead, he offers "flexible options for eligible non-retail positions" in hybrid and small roles, according to Starbucks.

According to the Starbucks website, the role determines hybrid workplace options and is listed in job postings. 

"Roles that are not based in one specific area are marked as "remote" while those that can be performed in several locations (e.g., a combination of home or office) are called 'hybrid."

Starbucks representatives said they had no further comments on Schultz's statements or company policies regarding remote work.

Schultz's inability to require full-time office work is contrary to recent efforts by other executives, such as Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who reportedly advised staffers to either return to the office or resign. Musk has openly criticized remote work and stated on Twitter that employees who don't want to work in the office "should pretend they work somewhere else."

Schultz seemed open to hybrid and remote work options and stated at the DealBook event that even though he comes to work at 7 a.m., he leaves at 7: p.m., flexible workplaces are "the way it is."
