Leading Employer Award: BUWOG among top 1% of Austria's employers


For many years, BUWOG Group GmbH has relied on extensive training and opportunities for further education as well as occupational health and has been committed to a healthy work-life balance for its employees. The fact that these efforts are worthwhile has also been confirmed now by the 2020 "Leading Employers" study: BUWOG is one of the top 1% of all of Austria's employers.

It is the values that are lived in a company on a daily basis that define an employer brand. At BUWOG Group GmbH, family friendliness, work-life balance, occupational health as well as training and further education have long been on the agenda and are consistently implemented as part of a wide range of measures.

The fact that this commitment is worthwhile has also been proven now by the current "Leading Employers" study by the Institute of Research & Data Aggregation, from which BUWOG emerged as one of Austria's top 1% of employers. With more than 40,000 companies examined and 700,000 pieces of data analysed, "Leading Employers" is the most comprehensive employer study of its kind. The seal of quality is awarded under the supervision and involvement of an advisory board with high-profile members from the areas of science and business. The study evaluates factors such as employee satisfaction and services, health management, talent communication, image and HR expertise.

"We are very pleased about this recognition and important award and are proud to be one of Austria's leading employers," Kevin Töpfer, managing director of BUWOG Group GmbH, says. "The result proves that, together with our team, we as an employer have developed over the years in the right direction, and it confirms our approach. We won't rest on our laurels, though, for based among other things on the valuable insights we've gained from the study, our aim is to continually develop ourselves and to improve even further for our employees."

Astrid Lassner, director of the Human Resources Department, adds: "BUWOG has established itself as a strong employer brand and has proven to be a stable and secure employer, particularly during the corona crisis. It is our daily endeavour to provide our employees the best possible working conditions at every one of our locations. Awards such as those from 'Leading Employers' confirm what we do and that makes us incredibly proud."

Happy working for happy living

BUWOG, which has been awarded the familieundberuf quality seal for work and family, also makes the health and safety and work-life balance of its employees top priority in its new customer and administrative centre in Vienna's city centre. In order to live up to its standard of being a family-friendly employer, a family office with two workstations has been set up in the new office building: it has a play area that provides entertainment for children of various ages. Parents can go about their work and know that their children are safe. Office furniture such as height-adjustable desks fulfils ergonomic requirements and ultramodern daylight standing lamps provide pleasant lighting controlled by motion detectors. Every day the new bistro also supplies the BUWOG team with freshly cooked dishes, most of which are made from regional products. Services such as cleaning, tailoring, massage and a company doctor complete the range of services available in the modern working environment.
