IKEA Says Thank You To It’s Employees With a Bike

Submitted by on December 10, 2010 – 11:28 pmNo Comment

IKEA, that Swedish home furnishing company, recently announced they are giving bicycles to all of their 12,400 employees in December.  How cool is that?

“It’s been a good year for IKEA, so what better way to celebrate our success than to thank our IKEA co-workers who made this happen. Our big reveal today will be a fun day as we unload 12,400 new bikes at IKEA US locations. This is our way of saying ‘thanks IKEA co-workers for being strongly committed to working together.’ We hope this bike will be taken in the spirit of the season while supporting a healthy lifestyle and everyday sustainable transport,” – Mike Ward, IKEA US President

IKEA has always been a socially conscious company and this employee bonus program is an extension of their commitment to sustainable living and also promoting a healthy lifestyle.  We salute their efforts and hope other companies follow their lead.

No mention of the bike manufacturer and they will not be putting the IKEA logo on it, so as not to confuse the public to think they manufacture bicycles.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
