IKEA Croatia will continue to monitor the unfolding coronavirus situation in the country and support those in need, including their own employees, the community, customers and all of their partners.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 14th of April, 2020, IKEA and of course IKEA Croatia’s vision has always been to create a better everyday living situation for as many people as possible. In this emergency, IKEA Croatia wants to continue living with this particular vision more than ever before, and as such has taken steps to ensure continued support for its employees and the wider community.

Although the Zagreb-based department store and the five IKEA Croatia delivery centres (located in Dubrovnik, Osijek, Rijeka, Split and Zadar) remain closed, IKEA Croatia recently announced that it will guarantee jobs and 100 percent income for all of its 611 employees as long as government measures remain in place.

IKEA Croatia will also ensure additional benefits to its employees who continue to ensure that IKEA’s home furnishing solutions continue to be available online and with the availability of contactless home delivery during these times. IKEA has made sure that their employees get to work in an environment that is organised in accordance with strict safety measures, with appropriate protective equipment and in full compliance with the recommendations for social distancing.

“Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, we at IKEA Croatia have done our best to respond to the needs of as many people as possible. Although our business was strongly influenced by the current situation, we wanted to do everything possible to protect the lives of our employees while maintaining business continuity throughout this extraordinary period. Our absolute priority is to protect our employees for the remainder of this crisis and to allow for as many of them as possible to work full time,” said Nikolaos Migkianis, Director of IKEA Zagreb.

The huge Swedish company has stepped up its crisis response efforts, allocating more than 1.5 million kuna in product donations to the Croatian healthcare system and other community support. In partnership with the Red Cross and various government institutions, IKEA provided assistance to COVID-19 patients, medical professionals and members of vulnerable communities, including donations of mattresses, textiles, food and other products.
