It is one of three measures announced by Ikea, at a time when inflation has skyrocketed, but when the company saw sales grow 19.5% over the previous year, to a total of 552 million euros. “The excellent performance we had was only possible thanks to the collective effort of everyone, surpassing the pre-established goals”, says Ricardo Pereira, deputy country manager of Ikea Portugal.

“At Ikea, and in line with our values, we want to accompany people at a time of greater economic difficulty, caused by inflation and the effects of the war on the European economy. We want our employees to know that there is a support network to help them if they need it", said Cláudio Valente, People & Culture Manager at Ikea Portugal.
