This year, IKEA was voted by coworkers as a Great Place to Work® on the ‘Fortune 20 Best Retail Workplaces’ list, received a 100% score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2016 Corporate Equality Index, and was listed as #3 on Forbes’ list of “Happiest Retailers to Work For.” The company has raised its own minimum wage twice in two years.

IKEA also will be installing Tennessee’s largest rooftop solar array, consistent with the IKEA renewable energy presence at its 90% of its U.S. locations.
