The IKEA values were shaped during a time in Sweden when the living conditions were harsh. People had to get by with what they had. This fostered a culture of entrepreneurship and hard work, and made people more pragmatic and mindful of resources. A lot has changed since the early days of the IKEA brand. Today we have grown into a global business with the size and reach to create positive change, not only for people but also for the planet. But on the inside, not a lot has changed.
