IKEA Introduces ‘The Co-Worker Game’ on Roblox, Offering a Virtual Employment Experience

In just five days, on June 24, IKEA is set to launch its first foray into the world of gaming with “The Co-Worker Game” on Roblox. This groundbreaking venture not only marks IKEA’s debut in mainstream gaming but also introduces a revolutionary virtual career concept to its digital universe.

Players will be immersed in the IKEA philosophy, where non-linear career paths and cross-department movement are encouraged. The goal is to provide a realistic simulation of the IKEA working environment, allowing players to experiment with various tasks and progress professionally within the game, mirroring real-world experiences.

If you’re interested in this innovative form of virtual work or need more information, you can visit the website created specifically for “The Co-Worker Game.” And if you want to take it one step further, there are still 10 paid positions available for those who want to interact with customers and advance through the ranks by transitioning between departments and taking on new responsibilities. Selected candidates will undergo virtual interviews between June 14 and 18, with each paid player receiving an hourly wage based on IKEA’s standard rates.

Aside from the paid roles, “The Co-Worker Game” offers all players the chance to freely explore the virtual world of IKEA. Users can visit the renowned Swedish food market and IKEA bistro, serve the iconic meatballs, or explore different exhibition rooms while organizing spaces with IKEA products. This not only enhances the gaming experience but also allows players to access exclusive user-generated content (UGC).

Darren Taylor, Country People and Culture Manager for IKEA UK and Ireland, emphasized the significance of this initiative: “We’re excited to launch paid jobs on Roblox to showcase how we do careers differently, bringing our unique career philosophy to life at IKEA.” At IKEA, there is no defined path for career progression – our people can change roles, move from department to department, and grow in any direction they choose both in-game and in real life.”
