June 28, 2018 at 12.00


VMP Oyj will simplify its service offering by merging its recruitment consultancies Romana Management and Personnel into the Personnel brand in September 2018. The merger is related to the Group’s internal reorganization arrangement mentioned in VMP’s Offering Circular. Until now, VMP has provided comprehensive services in recruitment, suitability assessment, training, and executive search under both the Personnel and Romana brands.

“The merger will bring clear benefits to the customers of both companies. Romana’s customers will have access to a significantly more extensive network of business locations, while Personnel’s customers will benefit from the more comprehensive organizational development services,” says Ari Juvonen, Managing Director at Personnel.

Romana’s strong expertise in organizational and leadership development will expand Personnel’s service offering. Through the merger, Personnel’s comprehensive network of business locations will also gain a new location in Turku. At the same time, Personnel’s staff will increase to over fifty employees.

Juha Pesola, CEO of VMP Plc, says that the merger is a part of the planned internal reorganization of the Group:

“Improving the efficiency of our business operations is one of the cornerstones of our strategy, benefiting not only our growth prospects, but also our customers. We believe that the new Personnel will be even stronger in developing recruitment methods based on customer needs.”
