Starbucks is to reward UK employees with a share bonus after the territory reported its sixth consecutive period of growth. Dubbed "bean stock", 6,700 staff at the US coffee giant's UK stores will receive stock units worth £370 to £500, which can be converted into company shares at a latter date. Store managers are in line to get stock valued at more than £1,000. It comes on top of a cash bonus for UK staff in December, and replaces a previous share scheme at the company. The announcement comes as Starbucks group announced record revenue in its first quarter, which included the festive period.
