Throughout the years, IKEA has stood by a set of values that affect the way we work. These values are as important at an IKEA store in Ireland as they are in a photo studio in Sweden or a distribution centre in China.
Humbleness and willpower
We respect each other, our customers and our suppliers. Using our willpower means we get things done.
Leadership by example
Our managers try to set a good example, and expect the same of IKEA co-workers.
Daring to be different
We question old solutions and, if we have a better idea, we are willing to change.
Togetherness and enthusiasm
Together, we have the power to solve seemingly unsolvable problems. We do it all the time.
Low prices are impossible without low costs, so we proudly achieve good results with small resources.
Constant desire for renewal
Change is good. We know that adapting to customer demands with innovative solutions saves money and contributes to a better everyday life at home.
Accept and delegate responsibility
We promote co-workers with potential and stimulate them to surpass their expectations. Sure, people make mistakes. But they learn from them!
