São Paulo, April 2022 – With a digital transformation project started ten years ago and reinforced five years ago with a series of acquisitions in different business verticals, the Stefanini Group showed, over the last two years, that it was prepared to to continually reinvent and to support customer and market needs amid the challenges posed by Covid-19.

The pandemic ended up accelerating internal digital transformation processes, including using its own solutions to automate the hiring of professionals virtually, from anywhere in Brazil through its “Stefanini Everywhere” program, in addition to contributing to expand the digitization of companies that had already given an initial start at the beginning of the health crisis, when they saw the need to transfer employees to a home office and maintain the level of productivity and good customer service.

Last year, the Stefanini Group registered in Brazil, under the command of Marcelo Ciasca, a growth of 20%, the best result of the last ten years, with the arrival of large clients and expansion of the scope of work with current clients on different fronts. , with digital transformation as its main focus. The multinational ended the year with a global turnover of R$ 5 billion (+ US$ 1 billion), and in Brazil the Stefanini Ventures division had a large share in this result.

For 2022, the expectation is to reach a growth of 25% in Brazil and in the world, according to Marco Stefanini, founder and Global CEO of the Stefanini Group, who envisions new acquisitions in the country and abroad. “We believe in a hybrid model, which combines acquisitions with organic growth, which brings great value to shareholders and employees.

We had a goal of investing R$ 500 million in three years, but we are going to exceed this amount. In 2020 alone, we made seven acquisitions. In 2021 there were two and we have already started this year with the acquisition of Cobiscorp, through our Topaz venture”, explains Stefanini.
The company also won robust contracts in different verticals, based on greater proximity to its customers. “We listened a lot to customers to really understand what they needed, what were the main pains to present customized solutions that could solve the issues in the short, medium and long term, depending on the project and the urgency. We listened and encouraged, more than ever, co-creation with our customers, as we understand that innovation is part of a collaborative project for a better future, whether for employees, customers and business partners. Therefore, I say that 2021 was the best of the last ten years for the Stefanini Group in terms of opportunities, learning, resilience and business generation”, Stefanini emphasizes.

If in 2020 it was necessary to improvise to overcome a challenging scenario, in 2021 several corporations decided to invest in solidifying their digital transformation processes with the help of the Stefanini Group, which today has about 30 companies in its robust digital ecosystem, which also brings together Universities, customers, partners and startups. The Open Startups program, renamed, in reference to Stefanini’s founding year, aims to go beyond traditional acceleration and embark on a real quest to generate new business models.

As every crisis generates opportunities for identifying problems and developing solutions that prioritize the triad of people, processes and technologies, the Stefanini Group expanded its portfolio with the Ventures unit (digital companies), organized into six major platforms: Banking, Analytics and AI , Cybersecurity, Industry 4.0, Digital Marketing and Technology. All this movement reiterates the desire to reinvent itself all the time, to change the mindset based on leadership.

In 2021, there was a strong investment by the headquarters in hiring new talent, even in places where Stefanini does not have offices. When deciding that at least 80% of its 30,000 employees worldwide (17,000 in Brazil) will adopt the home office model in different formats – full, partial and flexible -, the Brazilian multinational managed to reach almost 1,000 cities in the Brazil. Before the pandemic, the company had employees in 480 cities. It was a turning point for the company, which has always prioritized face-to-face work, but has seen its productivity grow by more than 10% in Brazil with remote work and the adoption of closer and more collaborative management.
