Starbucks to hire at least 60 more disabled people

Starbucks Korea said yesterday that it will hire more than 60 disabled people this year in part with efforts to increase employment of the group.

The Seattle-based coffee chain will hire 15 disabled people every quarter with the help of the Korea Employment Promotion Agency for the Disabled.

According to the company, it has been employing workers from the group since 2007, and in 2012, it signed an agreement with the agency to boost employment. As of this month, of Starbucks’ 5,940 employees, 96 are disabled, 12 of whom are in management-level positions.
