IKEA’s virtual store on Roblox is the center of The Co-Worker Game, an online immersive experience launching on the popular gaming platform on June 24, 2024.

Developed by The Gang, a Swedish game design company, The Co-Worker Game gives players the opportunity to experience IKEA’s unique approach to careers where non-linear career journeys are the norm and lateral moves across departments are commonplace.

Gamers can venture to IKEA’s famous Swedish Food Market and Bistro and serve up endless amounts of meatballs or stop over at the various showrooms and use famous IKEA products to organize the space, all with the chance to win exclusive IKEA UGCs.

But what makes it special from other immersive experiences out there is that the virtual store offers a limited number of paid, virtual co-worker roles in the game.

“We’re excited to be the first brand to launch paid work on Roblox to showcase how we do careers differently, bringing our unique careers philosophy to life,” Darren Taylor, Country People and Culture Manager at IKEA UK and Ireland, said in a press release. “At IKEA, there is no set route to career progression. Our co-workers are able to change roles, switch departments, and grow in any direction they choose, both in the game or in the real world. There are many ways to learn and grow at IKEA, and that’s what IKEA on Roblox is all about.”
