Personnel outsourcing and digitalization are permanently changing the personnel services industry. The workforce is moving online and the online job placement market is estimated to grow by as much as 40-60% year-on-year (Source: Staffing Industry Analysts).
Flexible job matching platforms provide flexibility, cost savings and efficiency in personnel management and a fast, easy and transparent way for employees to earn additional income.
For Alma Media, investing in Treamer is a natural next step in digital services.
“Alma Career is the market leader in recruitment services in several countries in Eastern Europe. This investment in Treamer is a natural step in the development of our digital services. It also provides Alma Career with a good position for monitoring the rapid digital transformation of the staffing services market,” says Senior Vice President Vesa-Pekka Kirsi, Head of Alma Markets.
“Modern people meet online. Staffing and recruiting services are strongly following this trend. Soon most of the employees will be available only online. We help both companies and employees reap the benefits of the phenomenon, such as speed, flexibility and transparency. With the COVID-19 crisis, the labor market has changed and the parties need new tools to prosper. Treamer platform offers equal opportunities for everyone to succeed.” Treamer CEO Peter Sazonov says.
Treamer's largest customers in 2019 were the City of Helsinki, Palmia, Lassila & Tikanoja and Heinon Tukku. The company's earnings are based on the percentage of the service fee charged from customers. The company pays employees salaries plus bonuses each week. Treamer's revenue has grown rapidly in recent years and in 2019 was EUR 1.7 million.
The investment will be made by Alma Career, which specializes in recruitment businesses. Alma Career is part of the Alma Media Group and operates in 10 European countries.
