Company Updates

  • 60 years ago, on the February 4th and 5th 1960, disaster struck in Billund. For the fourth time (yes indeed!) the Kirk Kristiansen family saw a part of their business go up in flames.

    The fire convinced Godtfred Kirk Christiansen it was time to move on and focus on the LEGO System in Play. Even though not all shared his view, the decision was made and March 1st a letter was sent to retailers to inform them on the decision:
    “Dear Retailers,
    As you will probably have seen or heard in the news reports, we have had a serious fire in our department for wooden toys, and a closer investigation of the incident has shown that the damage is far more extensive than at first assumed [...] This, along with our thoughts about the further development of the LEGO System in Play, has led us to close down our department for wooden toys, which has existed for many years. […] it has not been an easy decision to make, but we are convinced that it is the right one, as it enables us to concentrate on the unlimited possibilities of the LEGO System in Play.[…]”

  • Today we introduced LEGO® DOTS – our new tile-based play concept that offers a creative canvas for self-expression. To celebrate the launch, we teamed up with artist Camille Walala to design and build the 'HOUSE OF DOTS' in London.

The LEGO Group – Why Work With Us?


Purpose and responsibility

 

Inspiring and developing the builders of tomorrow

 

Children are the ones who’ll be building the world of tomorrow, and we’re committed to inspiring them and helping them grow. It’s a mission that’s shared by everyone here. We’re all proud to be part of it, and to make our own contribution to taking it further.

 

Planet Promise 

 

We want to play our part in building a sustainable future and making a positive impact on society and the planet, which children will inherit. As a  business, we have a 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 in all kinds of ways – like recently becoming 100% balanced by renewable energy.

 

Other ways we make a difference

 

Our commitment to our purpose takes many forms. Through the LEGO Foundation, we’re transforming the way the world thinks about learning through play. Through LEGO Education, we help build confidence, and maths, science and language skills, in children of all ages. And, with projects like LEGO Braille, we’re inspiring visually impaired children to communicate with confidence.

 

Joining a family

 

We were founded in 1932 by Kirk Kristiansen, and we’ve stayed in the family ever since. Remaining a family-owned business means a lot to us. It means that, without having to focus on delivering profits to shareholders, we can concentrate on our purpose and our responsibilities. It’s allowed us to keep our character and values throughout the years. And it’s a big reason why people feel like they become part of a family when they join us. 

 

The power of play

 

As a toy company, we take play seriously. We know how important it is to children, and our business too. We encourage people to play in their work – experimenting, thinking creatively, and letting their imagination run wild. And one day each year, we stop as a business so all our people, all around the world, can play. It’s an inspiring day - and a lot of fun too.

 

Our 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 –  Only The Best Is Good Enough.

 

Heritage and innovation

 

The LEGO story

 

From a carpenter’s workshop to one of the world’s most recognisable and beloved brands, we’ve come a long way in our 85 years. We have quite a story to tell. You can watch it here. It might just inspire you to come and be part of it.

 

The power of imagination

 

Big ideas aren’t just for kids. Our people are encouraged to dream that bit bigger. Their moments of inspiration keep on opening up new possibilities for them, and for us too. So, we stay open to ideas from everyone, whatever their role. After all, who knows what they might spark next?

 

Ideas come to life

 

A working sports car, made entirely from our bricks. LEGO plants made from actual plants. Sets that come alive under a smartphone. New sets, new ranges, and new ways of working. Everywhere you look at LEGO, you’ll find an idea that’s become a reality. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

 

Diversity & inclusion

 

At work, as in play, LEGO encourages self-expression. We’re proud to have a culture of fairness, trust and mutual respect, where people feel free to be themselves. We’re also refreshingly keen to help our people strike a work/life balance that works for them. It’s all part of becoming a place where everyone can give their best, every day.

    Social Media Projects Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The LEGO Group (London, England) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Very positive process. Initial call with HR for 30min followed by on site meeting with hiring manager. I did not get an offer as it was more of a social media channel management role than project management but both HR and Hiring Manager were really nice and smart people, HR specially was very responsive and came back with a very detailed feedback from my interview with notes from hiring manager, i was really impressed.
