It may not be a brand name, but there’s a lot of potential for a big, expensive mistake.

It’s not the first time a CEO has been caught misusing employees’ labor.
In 2012, Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, was caught by an employee’s personal Facebook account while using his personal cell phone to talk to his employees, according to The Washington Post.
The employees then called the company’s Human Resources Department and filed a formal complaint.
Microsoft responded by suspending Nadells employment and hiring a new CEO.
It was later revealed that the former Microsoft CEO had also been using the same cell phone in private conversations with his employees.
Nadelacat’s alleged actions were the subject of an investigation by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which found Nadels misuse of employee time was widespread.
It wasn’t until 2014 that Starbucks was brought to light for using its own human resources to monitor and control employee behaviors, and it wasn’t long before Nadelly was caught again.
In 2015, a whistleblower reported that Nadeldes personal email account had been hacked and the company was using its workers to monitor them.
The company had a $3 billion profit for the year.
The New York Times reported in 2015 that the Starbucks’ human resources department was in “total disarray,” with employees “trying to get paid as little as possible.”
In a memo to staff on February 24, 2017, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz stated, “Our employees are our future and the future of our company.
We want them to be our best, but we are also concerned about the future.”
Schultz also said that employees who “fail to do the right things, or fail to do their jobs effectively” will face discipline.
