Systems Engineer Total Rewards, Group Digital

Helsingborg, Skåne County - Explore location IT & Digital Solutions Full Time

Job description

We want our co-workers to appreciate and recommend IKEA as a great place to work!


Hi, my name is Catrin, Engineering Manager within the Total Reward subdomain in Ingka Digital (IKEA).

Ingka currently spends a lot on co-worker benefits, but co-worker awareness of and engagement in those benefits are low!

The business value we aim to create is to communicate our total rewards offer including salary and all global and local benefits, in a way that is clear and effective, available at all times, up to date and more.

By that we want our co-workers to appreciate and recommend IKEA as a great place to work!


Today, most countries are using their own local solution and not even all countries have procured a solution as of today. The need and urgency for a global solution are therefore very much needed. And that is where we will come in.
