StepStone files for acquisition of Swedish employer branding specialist Universum

To press release overview

The e-recruitment firm StepStone, an Axel Springer SE company, is planning to acquire the Swedish employer branding specialist Universum.

Universum is based in Stockholm and is one of the world’s leading employer branding specialists. It helps companies to monitor, define, develop and communicate their employer brand. The Swedish company was founded in 1988 and now serves around 2,000 clients in more than 35 countries.

By acquiring Universum, StepStone is consolidating its position as an important strategic partner for recruiting talent. In times of an ever-growing shortage of skilled workers and increasing competition for the right applicants, StepStone will in future be able to work alongside Universum to offer its customers even better and tailored solutions for securing the right employees.

The transaction requires approval by the relevant competition authorities before it can be finalised.
