Alma Media Corporation Press Release 12 May 2016
TYÖ&URA IS ALMA TALENT’S NEW RECRUITMENT CHANNEL WITH ADVERTISING SALES BY MONSTER
The combination of Alma Media and Talentum into Alma Talent also means changes for the new company's recruitment media. Alma Talent is closing down its two existing recruitment channels—Talentum’s Uratie and Kauppalehti’s Kulmahuone—and introducing the new Työ&Ura service, which spans all the media channels of Alma Talent. In the future, the online marketplace will be provided by Monster.fi.
Talentum’s Uratie has served business professionals for over ten years, both on paper and online. Kauppalehti, on the other hand, has had its own recruitment channel, Kulmahuone. The Työ&Ura recruitment channel will replace Uratie and Kulmahuone in May 2016 and serve professionals and experts in all of Alma Talent’s media. The Työ&Ura section’s target group media are Kauppalehti, Talouselämä, Arvopaperi, Tekniikka&Talous, Tivi, Mikrobitti and Markkinointi&Mainonta.
Finland’s major target group media under one roof
Thanks to the renewal, Alma Media can offer a wider range of recruitment media to its customers. From 9 May onwards, all recruitment advertisements will be sold centrally by Monster, which will make the planning and management of recruitment campaigns and the purchase process easier for the customer.
“Monster specialises in recruitment advertising, and focusing all our resources in one unit will allow us to offer the best possible service to our advertising customers” , says Tiina Järvilehto, Director of Alma Media Solutions.
“Thanks to Alma Talent’s target group media, we can serve our customers in a more solution-oriented way. Employers know their target group and we know how to reach that target group. We can create the right solution and find the most best professionals by combining different media”, says Mika Kiiskinen, Country Manager at Monster.
