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.

Forest Positive by 2020
By 2020, IKEA will become forest positive, meaning that all wood, paper and cardboard we use will come from more sustainable sources, such as recycled wood and wood from forests certified by the FSC®.

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.*
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.
“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.
