Switzerland-based beqom, a cloud-based compensation management platform, announced on Tuesday that it has secured a $300M (approx €277M) strategic investment from Sumeru Equity Partners

The company will use the funds to accelerate growth in product innovation to support Compensation and HCM leaders worldwide.

Given the competitive labour market, changing compensation structures, and strategic corporate initiatives, including DEI and pay equity, every company must reconsider its rewards strategy, writes beqom. 

“Compensation and rewards are at the heart of an organisation’s employee experience—since 2009, we have developed software that helps our customers build exceptional workforces that are engaged and inclusive,” says Fabio Ronga, CEO and co-founder of beqom. 

“We are thrilled to partner together with Sumeru to build a global standard for total compensation management. We feel strongly that Sumeru is the right fit as an investor, bringing not only capital but proven expertise and a perfect match in company cultures,” he adds.
