IKEA
From page 3B
Target doesn't count). Not so in the
land of IKEA.
It's not just the customers who are
treated better at IKEA; the company
maintains an array of standards to pro-
tect its employees and suppliers, both
in the store and factory. An IKEA rep
once flew to India to redesign a toy
on an emergency assignment to save
the jobs of 600 Indian factory work-
ers. It's almost impossible to imagine
an American businessman making the
same trip. With a clearly outlined code
of conduct, environmental guidelines
and strict regulations against child
labor and unsafe working conditions,
IKEA is ahead of most American cor-
porations.
IKEA probably won't seize a global
monopoly on the home furnishings
market, but would it be so bad if it did?
At the very least, IKEA has consistently
if gradually changed the way the world
approaches retail. America is only 200
years old. We still have a lot to learn
- and IKEA is here to teach.
- You should see how many
desk lamps Hartmann owns. Tell
