Culture & Values

At IPC, we believe in you.

We are a diverse group of positivity-driven, enthusiastic people with a passion for making our meeting place great for the many.

We may be different in various ways, but we share an inspiring vision:

“Creating A BETTER EVERYDAY LIFE for the many people, while being a great place to work, delivering sustainable profitable growth and a fantastic customer experience”.

How we envisioned this is truly based on our humanistic core values. These core values guide our work and build our inclusive, open and honest culture.

With our value of togetherness, we work hard and have fun together too! We are always looking for people who share our positive vibes and values.

Our 8 Key Values


Togetherness is at the heart of the IKEA culture. We are strongest when we trust each other, pull in the same direction and have fun together.

Caring for people and planet

We want to be a force for positive change. We have the possibility to make a significant and lasting impact — today and for the generations to come.


As many people as possible should be able to afford a beautiful and functional home. We constantly challenge ourselves and others to make more from less without compromising on quality.


A simple, straightforward and down-to-earth way of being is part of our Smålandic heritage. It is about being ourselves and staying close to reality. We are informal, pragmatic and see bureaucracy as our biggest enemy.

Renew and improve

We are constantly looking for new and better ways forward. Whatever we are doing today, we can do better tomorrow. Finding solutions to almost impossible challenges is part of our success and a source of inspiration to move on to the next challenge.

Different with a meaning

We are not like other companies and we don’t want to be. We like to question existing solutions, think in unconventional ways, experiment and dare to make mistakes - always for a good reason.

Give and take responsibility

We believe in empowering people. Giving and taking responsibility are ways to grow and develop as individuals. Trusting each other, being positive and forward-looking inspires everyone to contribute to development.

Lead by example

We see leadership as an action, not a position. We look for people’s values before competence and experience. People who ‘walk the talk’ and lead by example. It is about being our best self and bringing out the best in each other.
