WHAT’S HAPPENING AT IKEA

UNLOCKING LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL

At IKEA we believe in helping our co-workers be all they can  be. One of the many ways we do this is through leadership development programmes. For example, the Next Generation Programme run by IKEA UK and Ireland provides participants with 12 months of learning-in-the-business training to develop both their organisational knowledge and leadership skills. And the international nine month Business Development Leadership Programme supports future senior leaders to grow their talent.

BRING THE GARDEN INSIDE

Just because you don’t have a garden doesn’t mean you can’t have a garden. These days more and more people are living in cities in smaller spaces without access to outside spaces. At the same time they’re becoming more interested in healthy eating and living a more sustainable life. Enter KRYDDA/VÄXER - a new range from IKEA, available from May 1st, that lets you grow herbs and vegetables inside without the need for soil. Created in collaboration with the Swedish University of Agricultural Science, KRYDDA/VÄXER makes it easy to grow things in water in any small space - even in the dark of winter.

We’re pleased to announce that RIGGAD has been presented with an iF award - one of the world’s leading design awards. Chosen from more than 5,000 entries, the lamp was presented with with an iF label in the category Lighting.
 
“iF awards outstanding achievements in design. We are very honoured,” says Björn Block, Range Manager for Lighting and IKEA Home Smart at IKEA of Sweden AB.
 
Many people see charging their mobile phone as a chore. So  IKEA developed RIGGAD, a lamp that charges your phone while you work. The result? Less stress and fewer cables. The work lamp has a charger puck hidden inside the lamp base. Just put your phone on the plus sign, and that’s it.*
 
“I wanted the charger to blend in easily to make charging a natural part of your home,” says David Wahl, designer at IKEA of Sweden AB.
 
*Some phones will need a cover to make them work. VITAHULT charging covers are available at the IKEA stores.
