You read that right. The Swedish home-furnishing giant announced that to say thank you to its employees through Tack! – the IKEA Group loyalty program. IKEA Group will pay its co-workers another €108 million this year into their pension funds, for their loyalty and contribution.

In India today we have around 300 co-workers, which will grow to 1500+ co-workers in a year and 14000 by 2025. We value our co-workers who are our most valuable assets.” said Anna-Carin Mansson, Country HR Manager, IKEA India.

As part of this unique loyalty program, IKEA Group co-workers annually receive an extra payout in addition to existing pensions, according to the same fair and simple principle.

Every full-time IKEA Group co-worker in India who has worked for IKEA for five years or more receives the same amount regardless of their position or salary level. Part-time co-workers will receive a proportional amount in relation to hours worked.

Since Financial Year 2014, €413 million has been allocated to the TACK! programme. The global funding is divided amongst all IKEA Group countries, based on each country’s proportion of the total salary and wages. A pre-requisite for a funding of the program is that IKEA Group reaches its goal results.
