There's a team

There’s one big we. Rolling up our sleeves to create meeting places with IKEA, together. A team where we are all free to question the status quo and contribute ideas. Where we can be ourselves and explore the limits of what we each can do.

A place where you belong

We are part of the multi-national family at IKEA Southeast Asia, which includes some 4,000 co-workers from 45 countries. We believe employing people of different backgrounds, experiences and viewpoints help us build strong teams – and diversity is a big part of what makes our Ikano Centres a fun place to work.

Every co-worker can expect fair treatment regardless of ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, age or position in our company. Here you can always be yourself. In fact, we encourage it!

Working with us has its rewards

Working with us as its rewards. Wherever your work within IKEA Southeast Asia, you can enjoy a wide range of benefits.

IKEA discounts and restaurants

Co-workers are our most valued customers and are entitled to a 15% discount on any home furnishings and food sold in our stores. All our centres are anchored by IKEA, and co-workers from our centres are welcome to dine at co-worker restaurants that serve fresh, healthy subsidised meals.

Medical, maternity and paternity leave

Our co-workers enjoy medical, dental, eye checks and more in a comprehensive health insurance package. We also give mothers four consecutive months of maternity leave and fathers receive four weeks of paid time off after a baby has arrived to help share the joys – and responsibilities – at home.


We enjoy special occasions together and give gifts to mark seasonal celebrations, birthdays, marriage, the arrival of a baby.

Long Service Awards

We reward loyalty through our Long Service Awards.

Work environment

As part of the IKEA family, we take pride in home furnishings. We provide inspiring workplaces that showcase IKEA products and create a relaxed, open atmosphere where we work side by side.

Incentive plan

All co-workers may earn an annual financial reward when we meet our shared business objectives.

Making a positive impact

We are all entitled to a day of paid leave each year to work shoulder-to-shoulder with our charitable partners or volunteer for a good cause.

Fun Days Out

Health Week activities, tertial team outings and an annual dinner & dance are among some of the most-loved benefits in our total rewards package.

Co-worker Story

Co-worker Stories

Khairi Hadri Mohd Hafizul

As a technician in the Facilities team of our Toppen shopping centre in Johor Bahru, 24-year-old Khairi was surprised to find that he was entitled to a full month of for paternity leave when he had third baby.

“First time I have worked for a company that is caring like this. Before, I had two days off. Now, I am so happy to have a whole month at home with my baby boy. I was able to take care of my wife, help out with our other children and just be with our baby. It made a big difference. This is just one of the things that I love about working for Ikano Centres!”
