Alma Media in brief
In Finland, our business includes national, regional and local media, digital consumer and business services, training, events, trade literature publishing as well as the printing and distribution business. Alma Media’s international business in Sweden, the Baltic countries and Eastern Central Europe consists of recruitment services, financial and trade publications, an online marketplace for commercial properties and telemarketing services.
Alma Media employs approximately 2,300 people (excluding delivery personnel), one quarter of whom work outside Finland in nine different European countries. Our revenue in 2017 totalled approximately EUR 367,3 million.
Alma Media is a dynamic multi-channel media company with a strong capacity for renewal. Our products are the leading media and service brands in their respective fields and they have a strong market position in most of the operating countries. Our best-known brands include Kauppalehti, Talouselämä, Affärsvärlden, Iltalehti, Aamulehti, Etuovi.com and Monster.
We add service into media business
Our transformation from a company reliant on the printed newspaper publishing business to a provider of digital services has been well underway for a long time. We have made investments in digital media and services since the mid-1990s. The expansion of our digital services has been particularly successful in Eastern Central Europe. Digitisation is opening up a variety of opportunities for us, and media is increasingly becoming a service.
We build sustainable media
To us, corporate responsibility implies both the responsibility of our own operations and making responsibility an integral part of business operations. For Alma Media, reliability, primarily implying the provision of reliable media content, as well as environmental responsibility, are the two most important elements of responsibility. Other key elements of responsibility include journalistic integrity, responsibility for employees, the promotion of free speech, as well as supporting and promoting locality and communality.
We reach our customers
Network advertising, with a weekly reach of more than three million Finnish consumers, has seen strong growth in recent years. We are also actively developing tools and solutions that make it easier to buy digital advertising; for example, in the areas of targeted online advertising, user traffic measurement for web and mobile services, and analytics.
We work hard to constantly find new ways to refine and package information to meet various customer needs or, in other words, to bring information to life. Living information helps make better decisions and choices. Alma Media works for individual freedom and well-being. We want to be the most exciting provider of information, service and experiences. We set the stage for the future of media.
Alma Media creates growth together. Today and tomorrow.
