Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this essay is to illuminate in what aspects IKEA’s organizational culture in Ümraniye in Turkey differs alternatively resembles with IKEA’s organizational culture in Örebro in Sweden. The aim with organizational culture is to analyze the relationships between the leaders and co-workers and the relationships between the co-workers.The study is based on a combination of interviews and questionnaires. We have interviewed people in leading positions and made surveys among IKEA co-workers in two different stores located in two different countries. This combination of the methods gave us a better understanding for how the organizational culture is experienced from two different perspectives. Our aim was to examine the differences and likenesses between IKEA’s organizational culture in Ümraniye and in Örebro, to find out how the relationships between the leaders and the co-workers are and the relationships between the co-workers during work time, and also to find out if IKEA has succeeded in implementing its’ organizational culture in the IKEA store in Ümraniye.We have come to a conclusion that there are no considerable differences between the organizational culture in IKEA in Ümraniye and Örebro. This shows that IKEA has a strong organizational culture that eliminates the national Turkish culture in many aspects. The relationships between the leaders and co-workers and relationships between the co-workers are strong.
