Solving social issues to increase job opportunities
IKEA, the Sweden-based global furniture retailer, has launched a project with Abilympics – the Work Skill Olympics for People with Disabilities – to promote disability-inclusive environment within the company and to support this international movement. The cooperation includes skills trainings for Abilympics participants, support in organizing events and sharing of expertise. In 2019-2020 there has been a 55 per cent increase (134 persons) in employment of people with disabilities at IKEA Russia.
