How good are you at putting something together? How would you manage it when faced with a task of building Läckös? Most people have already heard about IKEA or have come across with this Swedish furniture wonder.
IKEA is a multinational group from Netherlands. The company name is an acronym of the initials of Ingvar Kamprad (IK), the farm he grew up in Elmtaryd (E), and his hometown in Southern Sweden, Agunnaryd (A). They sell designed furniture, kitchen appliances, and home accessories that are ready to be assembled. In 1943, IKEA was founded in Sweden by Ingvar Kamprad, who was 17-year-old by the time IKEA was built. Kamprad was also listed as one of the ten richest people in the world by Forbes, citing that he has $40 billion. That’s quite a lot of money.
Since 2008, Ikea has been noted to be the world’s largest retailer when it comes to furniture. Ikea is known for their modern designs and different types of furniture and appliances and is often linked to eco-friendly simplicity. They are also known for their attention to details in operation, continuous development of products, control of the costs that allow them to lower their prices for two to three percent back in the year 2010, the period of global expansion. Their complex corporate structure was a cause for allegations made by the European Union. E. U.’s allegation was that the structure is an intentional design for the company to avoid tax payment amounting to over a billion Euros from the year 2009 up until 2014.
Now, if you think that you are up to putting together their simple yet very frustrating and mind-boggling furniture, then, this might be the job opportunity you have been waiting for.
TaskRabbit has been bought by IKEA. TaskRabbit is a gig site that finds a match between workers looking for an instant job and employers looking for workers that can do the job they need even when with short notice. This comes with an undisclosed price and plans to close the deal the month after. The said app will still operate as IKEA’s independent company.
The president and CEO of IKEA, Jesper Brodin said in a news release that they will be able to learn from the digital expertise of TaskRabbit and provide their customers an affordable and flexible service solutions at the same time based on their needs and demands for the day.
TaskRabbit services will be offered by IKEA to the customers who are more likely stressed from navigating the confusing warehouses in the United Kingdom and the United States, while 27 other countries with the presence of IKEA could follow according to the release that was stated.
It is a good thing for commoners like us who flinch upon opening those IKEA instructions but it could be an opportunity to earn for the potential “taskers” that are willing to take the job.
This proves to be true with records showing that by working like this, you could earn $2,000 every week on TaskRabbit. If you are still unconvinced of the demand for IKEA-building services reaching sky high, the comments of people (confusing to cursing and some even worse) would surely give you an idea about their need for help in putting it together as a potential income for you.
Here are some of the comments:
“WHY DON’T THESE INSTRUCTIONS HAVE WORDS?”
“I’m gonna need more beer.”
“I PUT IT TOGETHER BACKWARDS!”
“I don’t think my marriage is going to survive this.”
“(Throws stupid baby wrench.)”
The emphasis was not added anymore. It is crystal clear that the demand for IKEA “taskers” is undeniable. This means that you have to take the opportunity of potential demand for the job if you think you have the patience and you’re up to the challenge.
Now, we don’t hate IKEA. We even love their cheap and delicious options in dining! Penny Hoarder illustrative designer, Kristy Gaunt has expressed her thrill for the IKEA furniture by saying that even with all the frustration in getting the pieces together, it still being well worth it. They saved money by purchasing it and gave them a sense of accomplishment when done putting it back together.
