IKEA Australia has rolled out its new loyalty club, the IKEA Business Network – a free initiative supporting all businesses across Australia to help them grow and create a better life at work.
Free to join, the network offers exclusive access to services, benefits, communities and knowledge that help small businesses and nurture growth in three key areas.
The first is business, offering IKEA expertise and experience to help improve efficiencies, allowing business owners to focus on running their business their way.
The second is space, helping to affordably create spaces that meet a business’ needs and those of its customers, while reflecting its unique brand identity.
The third area is people, helping to support employees’ wellbeing and creating a better life at work by providing access to benefits, tools and offers normally unavailable to small businesses.
IKEA Business Network membership includes interior design consultations offering guidance on space improving ideas and quick design fixes; online training ‘Learn with IKEA’ incorporating a range of modules where IKEA experts, business leaders and entrepreneurs share their expertise on business basics; member discounts on IKEA products in-store and online, and access to employee benefits including exercise videos, healthy recipes, money advice and financial tools, mindfulness resources and more.
IKEA Australia business leader, Petra Toth said, “Australian small businesses have faced incredible challenges over the past two years and are now going through a recovery phase, while preparing for new growth following the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Small businesses are so varied with unique needs, and that’s why IKEA Business Network offers a wide range of benefits to fit in with what our members need most. It might be design help with their physical space and product discounts, taking advantage of our business expertise with training, or tapping into wellbeing benefits they may not otherwise be able to provide their staff.
“We want to be a supportive and trusted partner who inspires and empowers Australian small businesses to create a better life at work.”
