Welcome to the LEGO Group – the company behind the bricks. We’ve been sparking children’s imaginations and inspiring the builders of tomorrow since 1932. Our 18,000+ colleagues across the world keep this spirit alive today.

To discover what we’re made of, where we work and how we do things, just have a look around.

Our locations

Billund, Denmark is our home, but we have 5 main hubs, 37 sales offices, 5 manufacturing sites, over 500 retail stores and awesome people all around the world. Here’s where you’ll find our main regional hubs.

Thomas and Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen

A family business

Since Ole Kirk Kristiansen founded his carpentry business in 1932, the Kirk Kristiansen family have played a leading role in the business. This continues today, with our 4th generation owners, so the values, beliefs and traditions that Ole created still guide us.

The family remains committed to making a positive difference to children around the world, via Learning-through-Play. This ambition is laid out in the LEGO® Idea Paper, which describes their fundamental belief that children are our role models. We see it come alive throughout the LEGO Brand Framework, which steers everything we do today.

Inclusion at the LEGO Group

Diversity and inclusion here is a living thing. It’s something everyone can contribute to, shape, and take further. And it starts with our global priorities, valuing differences and improving our representation. We’re working towards these by building the inclusion capability in our organisation, inspiring children from all walks of life to learn through play, improving our HR processes and tools, and much more. By getting colleagues involved worldwide, we bring our global ideas to life at a local level wherever we work.

Responsible engagement with children

Responsible engagement with children

In 2014, we were proud to be the first company in the toy sector to sign the UNICEF Declaration of Child Rights & Business Principles. This began a partnership that has shaped our Child Safeguarding and Social Responsibility Strategies. Children are our role models and keeping them safe is at the centre of everything we do. This means ensuring children’s physical safety, but also building a sense of emotional safety – enabling them to explore, grow, learn and develop through amazing LEGO play experiences.
For roles that regularly engage with children, we include child safeguarding background screening during onboarding.

This is just a quick look at the LEGO Group, but there’s a lot more to explore.
