Time Limited Assignments

Time limited assignments (TLAs) expand career pathways by allowing existing employees the opportunity to experience a different role and connect with meaningful work. These short-term assignments have a predetermined beginning and end date, after which they return to their home team, bringing with them expanded perspective and new connections.

Origin Experience

Every year, select eligible Starbucks Coffee Masters from the U.S. and Canada go on a trip to our coffee farm in Costa Rica, Hacienda Alsacia. This two-day experience immerses them in the “first 10 feet of the coffee journey,” getting their hands dirty, planting and participating, growing their relationship with the beautiful process we call “bean to cup.”
