Being ourselves, and contributing with our uniqueness makes us all grow
Caring for people, diversity and inclusion are embedded in our vision and in our values. At IKEA Group, we see diversity and inclusion as the right thing to do. Recognising our co-workers’ differences contributes to creativity and supports our growth. We strive to have a diverse and inclusive work environment where co-workers feel valued for their uniqueness, recognised for their diverse talents, and where co-workers can be themselves.
Simply put: we believe the uniqueness of every individual makes IKEA better!
Join us in March to celebrate International Women’s Day 2017 and #committoequality!
Nobody’s equal till everybody’s equal
Human Rights are for everyone. So our vision of “creating a better everyday life for the many people” embraces co-workers, customers, suppliers and their local communities. Our co-workers can expect fair treatment and equal opportunities, whatever their age, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability ethnicity, race, nationality, religion, marital or family status, or any other dimension of their identity.
Social entrepreneurs use business to create social change. We partner with business-minded women in rural areas, local artisans with previously little or no access to paid, sustainable income. The collaboration gives us inspiration, and access to skilled artisans working with traditional handicrafts. And products that are handmade in limited numbers and sold in selected IKEA stores around the world.
As a values-driven company, diversity and inclusion are grounded in IKEA Groups very nature. Offering a competitive advantage, they underpin our success and comprise a fundamental part of our future vision. And as diverse, down-to-earth people with a passion for home furnishing, we believe every individual has something to offer.
Working for a positive impact on people and the planet is about supporting a healthier and more sustainable life at home, using energy and resources in a more sustainable way – and taking responsibility for people and communities.
