Abstract [en]

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.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att belysa i vilka avseenden IKEA: s organisationskultur i Ümraniye skiljer sig alternativt överensstämmer med IKEA: s organisationskultur i Örebro. Med organisationskultur syftar studien till att undersöka relationerna mellan medarbetare och chefer/ledare samt relationerna mellan medarbetarna.

Studien bygger på en kombination av intervjuer och enkäter. Vi har genomfört intervjuer med personer i ledarposition samt enkätundersökningar bland IKEA i två olika varuhus beläget i olika länder. Denna kombination av metoderna gav oss en bättre förståelse för hur organisationskulturen uppfattas utifrån de två olika perspektiven. Vi ville undersöka skillnader och likheter mellan IKEA: s organisationskultur i Ümraniye och IKEA: s organisationskultur i Örebro, hur ser relationerna ut mellan cheferna och medarbetarna samt relationerna mellan medarbetarna inom arbetstid samt om IKEA har lyckats med att tillämpa sin organisationskultur på IKEA varuhuset i Ümraniye.

Vi har kommit fram till att det inte finns några avsevärda skillnader mellan organisationskulturen i IKEA i Ümraniye och Örebro. Detta visar på att IKEA har en stark organisationskultur vilket slår ut den nationella turkiska kulturen i många avseenden. Relationerna mellan ledare och medarbetare samt medarbetare inom organisationerna är starka.
