Swedish furniture company Ikea is planning to hire 10,000, both direct and indirect, in Maharashtra over the next three years, according to its people and culture manager for India Anna-Carin Mansson. These people will be deployed at the forthcoming store in Navi Mumbai and the assembling services centres and supply chain networks in the state.

The company’s first store was opened in Hyderabad in August this year and its second store in Navi Mumbai will be opened in early 2019.

Half of the employees will be women at all levels. The company is also open to recruit from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) communities, Mansson told a news agency.

Ikea is the first major single brand retailer to get foreign direct investment approval and plans to open several stores and multiple touch points across the main cities over the next 10 years. (DS)
