In spite of doing “everything” to get workers to return to the workplace, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said they’re not returning “at the level” he needs.

Talking at The New York Times’ DealBook strategy gathering in Washington, DC, on Thursday, Schultz — who returned as break CEO in April after Kevin Johnson ventured down from the job — said influencing staff members from remote work and back to the workplace hasn’t been useful.

“I have been fruitless, in spite of all that I’ve attempted to do, to return our kin once again to work,” Schultz, 69, said. “I’ve begged them. I said I’ll get kneeling down. I’ll do push-ups. Anything you desire. Return.”

He proceeded: “No, they are not returning at the level I need them to. What’s more, you know, we’re an extremely cooperative, inventive gathering. I understand I’m an outdated individual and this is an alternate age.”

In spite of his disappointment, Schultz has not ordered that corporate workers return to the workplace, rather offering “adaptable choices for qualified, non-retail jobs” as half breed and remote situations, as per the Starbucks site.

“Half and half work environment choices rely upon the singular job and are recognized in our work postings,” the Starbucks site states. “Jobs that don’t need to be situated in a particular area are named as ‘remote’ while jobs that can be satisfied in different areas, like a blend of home and office, are shown as ‘mixture.'”

Starbucks didn’t promptly answer Insider’s solicitation to remark on Schultz’s proclamations or the organization’s remote work strategies.

Schultz’s aversion to request full-time office work contradicts ongoing endeavors among different chiefs, including Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who allegedly advised staff members to get back to the workplace or leave. Musk has been transparently basic or remote work, expressing on Twitter that representatives who are against working in the workplace “ought to claim to work elsewhere.”

Schultz seemed to assent to the possibility of half breed and remote work choices, and said at the DealBook occasion that however he by and by comes into the workplace at 7 a.m. what’s more, leaves at 7 p.m. consistently, adaptable working environments are currently “how it is.”

“I figure individuals will return a few days every week and such is life,” he said. “Yet, what I am assessing is, what’s the degree of efficiency? What’s more, you know, apparently individuals are working at home.”
