About the LEGO Group

About us

The power of play Since 1932, we’ve been passionate about our belief in the importance of imagination and play. Children have been our role models from the start, and we keep them at the heart of everything we do. Putting smiles on faces for generation after generation has made sure that the first brick, we made over 60 years ago, is still as relevant today as it always was. We’re the masters of reinvention and will continue to reimagine and rebuild what it means to play for years to come. Over 17,000 people. One purpose. Every single person in our team is united behind our mission to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow. After all, children are the ones who will ultimately shape the future of our world. We’re working to bring the LEGO system of play to children everywhere. And, guided by our mission, we’re also working to build a more sustainable future, improve education, and help visually impaired children communicate with confidence. Help us make a difference Working with us gives you the chance to explore, create, discover and find new ways to bring the power of learning through play to millions of people around the world. If you’re energised by the thought of making a positive impact on the lives of children, colleagues, communities and the planet, you’ll feel at home in our team.

Our Culture

Playning well Together At the LEGO Group we’re proud to have a culture of fairness, trust and mutual respect, where people can always feel free to express themselves. Bringing together the qualities that make each of us unique helps create a special team environment that brings out the best in our people. We care about wellbeing too. We take a refreshing approach to helping our people find a work/life balance that works for them. It’s all part of becoming a place where everyone can give their best and enjoy their work Imagination at all ages Big ideas aren’t just for kids. We encourage you to play in your work – experimenting, thinking creatively, and letting your imagination run wild. We even take one day each year to give all our people around the world the chance to stop what they’re doing and just play. It’s an inspiring day, where we all have fun and remember why we do what we do. Built on values Imagination. Creativity. Fun. Learning. Caring. Quality. You’ll find these six values at play, wherever in the world we are. They guide and shape what we do and how all our people work. And it’s all underpinned by a spirit we’ve stuck to, right from the start – that ‘only the best is good enough’. If your personality is made of similar pieces, you’ll thrive here.

Our Purpose

Making a positive impact Working at the LEGO Group gives you the power to help make the world a better place. Of course, we’re here to have a positive impact on the lives of the children who play with our products. But our purpose goes much deeper than that: we’re equally committed to having a positive influence on our colleagues, our communities and the entire planet. Access to play Play matters. We believe everyone should have access to play, regardless of who they are or where they’re from. This is why we’re always working hard to bring learning through play to children and communities in need. Through this work we hope to inspire more children of today to become the builders of tomorrow. Responsible & renewable We’re playing our part in building a sustainable future by making a positive impact on the planet children will inherit. As a big business, we recognise our responsibility to minimise the environmental impact of our operations. Our aim is to make zero environmental impact on the planet and we’re working towards this by balancing 100% of energy used to make LEGO® bricks with energy from renewable sources.

Our Heritage

Meet the family The LEGO Group has been a family-owned business since we were founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. Active and engaged ownership is very important to the family. They continue to play an influential role in the business – helping to ensure that the beliefs and traditions that created the business will continue to guide us for years to come. Learning through play When children play, they learn, and our very name LEGO® comes from the Danish to play well. At the LEGO Group we feel we have an obligation to make a positive difference to children all over the world by giving them the opportunity to learn through play. Changing the game As a toy company, we take play seriously. We continually challenge ourselves to innovate and bring new dimensions to play. This means we encourage our people to dream bigger, search for new opportunities and explore new ideas. We’ve already built a sports car out of bricks, and created bricks that come to life under a smartphone. Who knows what’s next?

Diversity & Inclusion at the LEGO Group

We’re committed to building a diverse organisation with a unique sense of belonging to reach and inspire every child in the world. We work with a broad definition of diversity, from gender, ethnicity, background and experience to other dimensions such as lifestyle and family responsibilities. Our goal is to increase the representation of all dimensions to reflect the increasingly diverse and global marketplace we operate in. Diversity depends on inclusion. Inclusion starts with creating a safe space and helping everyone be seen, heard, valued and respected. The more inclusive we are, the better we will be at developing and empowering everyone to contribute at their full potential. Build inclusion capability within our organisation Our leadership model emphasises the importance of inclusion. We each play a part in creating a safe space for everyone to be seen, heard, valued and respected. In 2019 we introduced the Leadership Playground, an inclusive model for leadership which begins by creating a safe space for everyone and “energising everybody every day” Balance global and local priorities We work with a Diversity & Inclusion Council which represents employees across our diverse organisation and many locations. The Council drives global priorities and works with local and regional needs to accelerate our progress. The Council members help to stimulate conversation and action in all corners of our organization and used our employees' feedback to address diversity issues. Webinars and podcasts help bring together the many aspects of diversity and inclusion. Engage our employees in diversity and inclusion We want our employees to play an active part in shaping the diversity and inclusion agenda. Task forces, events and communication are essential to building awareness and ownership at all levels. Improve HR processes and tools We strive to develop an organisation where employees with different backgrounds, knowledge, experiences, perspectives and beliefs can all realize their full potential. We invest in everyone and make lifelong learning and career development solutions available to all. In 2019 we launched a new learning platform, improved our succession planning and introduced new tools to make the language in our job adverts gender neutral and our commitment more visible on our online platforms. Inspire all children to learn through play Regardless of race, gender, language or religion, children of all ages love to play, and LEGO commercials should reflect that. That’s why we work to ensure that our creative content reflects society and the children who play with LEGO bricks. Track progress through HR metrics and insights To ensure progress, we set targets for employee motivation and satisfaction which we track through our annual employee engagement survey - the 'LEGO People Pulse'. In the survey, we set specific questions related to belonging, inclusion and psychological safety which we monitor and work with as part of our inclusion index. We believe that building positive team dynamics that make the most of differences and encourages the best contributions from everyone are critical to creating a truly diverse and inclusive workplace. We publish our progress in our Sustainability Report. Visit LEGO.com to find out more about Sustainability including People and reporting
