IKEA Launches Social Fund to Assist Employees

IKEA is launching a $10 million social fund to help employees who are struggling with the economy. In addition, the retailer is offering larger staff discounts to support employees struggling to cope with higher living costs. The fund would be available in all markets, and the money would not be a loan.

All staff can apply for the fund, and the company will assess on a case-by-case basis how much they may receive. The employer said it would also double staff discounts to 30% and is looking into other additional compensation enhancements after it invested in growing employees' compensation and benefits.

Each Food Lion store will donate boxes purchased directly to local Feeding America member food banks or a partner feeding agency in the store’s community. Additionally, 100% of all cash donations will directly support Feeding America and its member food banks.
