IKEA is the world’s largest furniture manufacturer with over 300 stores in 36 countries around the world. Within the UK, IKEA’s continued growth and development led to the decision to proactively recruit a significant pool of managers, who would be ready to trained and ready move into position as and when management positions became available across the country.
This management manpower planning exercise, known as Plus 10, required IKEA to source retail talent over and above their normal recruitment requirements.
IKEA engaged Innergy to manage their recruitment process, based on Innergy's ability to demonstrate a quality of service and their understanding of the unique culture of IKEA.
Innergy successfully placed 10 managers across the country in a variety of roles. Innergy’s success in finding the right fit for IKEA was a result of the initial in depth consultation to understand what an IKEA person was all about as well as the comprehensive screening and selection process.
“Incredibly professional. Innergy very quickly understood our unique culture and the needs of our business and continue to source high quality candidates for us across the UK”
