Skills for Employment

IKEA in a cooperation with The Human Rights League run a project supporting asylum holders and subsidiary protection holders: Skills for Employment

The initiative aims to help refugees gain new skills and work experience so that they have a better chance of finding a job, whether it is at IKEA stores and units or at other companies. This gives them better opportunities to integrate into their new host communities.
