Take a minute, chat, figure things out together.
Does that work for you?
You can get a lot done over a simple cup of coffee, a chat in the aisle or other quick get-togethers.
Keeping things simple is also our favourite way to work. Complicated solutions can often be expensive or time-consuming, and IKEA was born in the rugged Swedish countryside where a down-to-earth, common-sense attitude became part of our culture. That’s why you’re on first-name terms with everyone else, dress is casual, you share open offices, and you’re free to talk with any co-worker no matter your role or their title. And you can always sit down for a ‘Fika’ together – a traditional Swedish coffee break in the day where you pause, reflect and reconnect. You’ll find it’s also a chance to get things done quickly and simply – without booking a conference room, drawing up an agenda or creating a slide presentation. Why not just get together with co-workers and figure things out?
