“In locations where drive-thru isn’t feasible we are testing platforms like delivery,” Roz Brewer, chief operating officer, explained recently.
In China, Starbucks already has a delivery program, Starbuck Delivers, which caters to 2,000 stores across 30 cities. Through Uber Eats, the company plans to bring delivery services to about a quarter of its U.S. stores by the end of the second quarter.
Starbucks's partnership with Uber Eats signals an investment in a business model that further prioritizes convenience— a key aspect of thriving as a business in today's fast-paced and overwhelming digital world where customers are increasingly expecting deliver services to be the norm. "Convenience as a business ideal prioritizes efficiency and ease," said Harris Poll CEO John Gerzema on Forbes. "Brands can provide convenience to consumers by thinking holistically and proactively about consumers' lifestyles and make their products and services accessible during their routines, different life stages and future milestone moments."
With this move, Starbucks follows in the footsteps of brands like Amazon that continue to lead because for the e-commerce giant convenience is not only an ideal, it is their "core product".
In our new survey for Lululemon, we found that more than 75% of those surveyed said the world feels more divisive now than it did a year ago. In fact, 53% of adults said they feel more anxious in their daily lives today versus last year—and this anxiety is even more prevalent among millennials (65%).
The study is Lululemon's first annual Holiday Stress & Wellness Outlook, a survey of 4,000 people in the U.S. and Canada, to understand how people are feeling and what makes them feel better during this time of increased anxiety and stress.
In spite of the tumultuous climate, people are finding ways to deal with the increased anxiety and stress. Chief among them are prioritizing wellness and building social relationships. 80% of respondents said the key to feeling good during the holidays is maintaining a healthy mind and body. And 65% of people said that being with friends and family is the best antidote to stress and that nearly nine out of ten adults feel that the holidays should be about in-person connections and experiences.
“The survey reconfirms that giving back to yourself and others during the holiday season assists in a more balanced mind and body," said Celeste Burgoyne, the company's EVP, Americas, in a blog post on the findings. "At Lululemon, we truly believe that prioritizing wellness is crucial to fostering positive connection with guests, family and community, especially during the busiest time of year.”

Results from a new survey conducted online by The Harris Poll on behalf of Your Lawyers Online show there is nearly universal agreement among Americans that legal fees today are extremely expensive, with over 9 in 10 (91%) agreeing, and they wish there were alternatives to traditional lawyers when dealing with small legal matters (82%). More than two-thirds (69%) of American adults say they would be willing to use online legal services if it would save them money. Younger adults (76% of those age 18-54 vs. 65% of those age 55+), those who have lower household incomes (72% of those with total household income of less than $100k vs. 62% of those with $100k or more), and are parents (78% of those who are parents of children under 18 vs. 66% who are not) are more likely to say this.
The survey findings highlight the relevance of virtual law firms such as Your Lawyers Online, which replace traditional “fee-for-time” models with “fee-for-service” solutions that offer unbundled legal services to save users time and money—especially on small legal matters like reviewing legal documents or establishing a will.
“I really think virtual law firms like Your Lawyers Online represent the future of law in a digital age where Americans are seeking efficiency and value over cumbersome and costly traditions,” says Your Lawyers Online Founder & CEO Nicole Schaefer, a family law attorney and entrepreneur based in Portland, OR. “There is this exclusive mystique around law that keeps people without a law degree feeling mystified by the process, which is why they usually end up paying so much for legal services. We are setting out to change that by making the process more accessible to everyone.”

The tech giant drew the public's ire when it was discovered that it had failed to disclose the data breach last spring for fear of damaging its reputation.
Google's CEO Sundar Pichai is slated to address Congress today, December 11, where he'll most likely fend off questions from lawmakers regarding consumer privacy, Google's relationship with China, regulation of the tech industry and allegations of political bias.
These scandals could impact Google's already tumbling reputation as the company's corporate reputation dropped from #8 in 2017 to #28 in the 2018 Harris Poll Reputation Quotient study. Google will have to do more to assuage the fears of a public that is already wary of their personal information getting leaked. Our recent survey for IBM uncovered deepening consumer anxiety over data privacy and security. 85% of consumers said businesses should be doing more to actively protect their data and 75% will not buy a product from a company – no matter how great the products are – if they don't trust the company to protect their data.
Americans voters from across the political spectrum seem to desire stronger American leadership on key human rights issues, according to our 2015 survey for Human Rights First. Most Americans say eliminating hate crimes (59%) and human trafficking (56%) worldwide are among the most important issues. The poll found that more than three in four Americans believe that the U.S. should lead the world in promoting human rights.
But it's not just political leadership that Americans want, they are turning to corporations to champion human rights and practice their values in their business processes. The Human Rights First study also found that 82% of Americans want companies to be held accountable for slavery and human trafficking when it occurs in their supply chains. And our recent survey with Out & Equal Workplace Associates revealed that more than 80% of Americans say businesses should not be able to deny service based on race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or disability.
The UDHR is a foundational document of international human rights law and was referred to as humanity’s Magna Carta by Eleanor Roosevelt, who chaired the UN's Commission on Human Rights that was responsible for the drafting of the document.
