DEVELOPMENT IN IKEA
IKEA grows when its people grow. We are trying to support everybody’s talent and develop it within a given job description and in a form of special smaller projects. In IKEA, there can easily grow a great sales manager from warehouse co-worker or cashier can become a restaurant manager. Reached former education is not that important. What is more important is an effort to constantly learn new things and to take responsibility for my own development.
Learning in IKEA
IKEA has its own system of learning and trainings designed for a specific job position. You will get an introduction training as a new co-worker where you will learn how the company operates, what are the safety and security rules, customer friendly principles and our environmental approach. You will also get a mentor – a colleague who answers all your questions, shows you your department and introduces you to your colleagues. You will pass more trainings according to your training plan then.
Growth and development in IKEA
Development possibilities in IKEA are as various as personalities of our co-workers. We have a Development talk at least once a year which is a friendly meeting with your manager where you agree together where you would like to go and develop yourself in a future.
We also organize Development centers where participants get to know their potential, strenghts and weaknesses and gain a reccomendation which area is the most suitable for their development. Besides that, we have a special development program for future managers where they learn managerial skills and focus on personal development. Every co-worker can join Talent week which runs once a years to find co-worker’s individual talent.
Possibility to work abroad
Working in IKEA abroad is easier than you can imagine. IKEA is constantly growing and new job opportunities are coming together with new stores. It is only in your hands how you use these opportunities and how your career will look like. Many co-workers worked even in several countries so we have many experiences with a support of our co-workers abroad.
