There’s a big difference between doing things right and doing the right things. In our team we gather insights from big data to make sure IKEA does the right things. We’re a diverse group of people who spend our days digging into consumer behaviour and how people live their lives at home. You could say that we know the trends before they’re actually trends – and we use that knowledge to create a better everyday life for our customers.

Our small team is part of the commercial team and is supporting the whole organization with relevant analysis, insights and workshops, with the goal to help IKEA to become an even stronger brand, employer and home furnishing retailer, helping the consumers to create a better everyday life.
