Tesla aims to stop relying on third-party body shops

Tesla aims to stop relying on third-party body shopsTesla CEO Elon Musk has suggested that the company’s priorities are shifting towards service via the implementation of collision repairs at in-house body shops. Last year, Tesla attempted to combat frequent complaints about the time taken for collision repairs by adding hundreds of body shops to their network. This required technicians to undergo weeks of training in California and sometimes purchase new equipment specially designed for Tesla models.

Starbucks to close over 8,000 coffee shops in the US for racial bias training

Starbucks to close over 8,000 coffee shops in the US for racial bias trainingStarbucks will close more than 8,000 shops in the US on Tuesday to conduct anti-bias training, the next of many steps the company is taking to try to restore its tarnished image as a hangout where all are welcome. After the arrests of two black men in Philadelphia last month at one of its stores, the coffee chain’s leaders apologised and met with the two men, but also reached out to activists and experts in bias training to put together a curriculum for its 175,000 workers. That has put a spotlight on the little-known world of “unconscious bias training,” which is used by many corporations, police departments and other organizations to help address racism in the workplace. The training is typically designed to get people to open up about implicit biases and stereotypes in encountering people of color, gender or other identities. The Perception Institute, a consortium of researchers consulting with Starbucks, defines implicit bias as attitudes – positive or negative – or stereotypes someone has toward a person or group without being conscious of it. A common example, according to some of its studies, is a tendency for white people to unknowingly associate black people with criminal behavior. Many retailers including Walmart and Target said they already offer some racial bias training. Target says it plans to expand that training. Nordstrom has said it plans to enhance its training after issuing an apology to three black teenagers in Missouri who employees falsely accused of shoplifting.

But one expert says training of this kind can have the opposite effect if people feel judged. According to a video previewing the Starbucks training, there will be recorded remarks from Starbucks executives and the rapper and activist Common. From there, employees will “move into a real and honest exploration of bias” where, in small groups, they can share how the issue comes up in their daily work life. Starbucks has described it as a “collaborative and engaging experience for store partners to learn together.” In the Philadelphia incident, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson were asked to leave after one was denied access to the bathroom. They were arrested by police minutes after they sat down to await a business meeting. The incident was recorded by cellphones and went viral. Nelson and Robinson settled with Starbucks this month for an undisclosed sum and an offer of a free education. They also reached a deal with the city of Philadelphia for a symbolic $1 each and a promise from officials to establish a $200,000 program for young entrepreneurs. Starbucks has since announced anyone can use its bathrooms even if they are not buying anything. According to documents Starbucks sent to store workers, employees should also think carefully when dealing with disruptive customers. A guide advises staff to consider whether the actions they take would apply to any customer in the same situation. They should dial 911 only if the situation seems unsafe. Starbucks said the arrests never should have occurred and announced the mass closures of its stores for the afternoon of training.
