Personnel

With around 3,000 employees, the Verkehrsbüro Group is the largest domestic employer in the industry. Tourism is a people’s business. Only highly motivated employees are able to offer the level of service that our guests deserve and appreciate. That’s why we encourage regular training for all employees. Around 200 job-specific seminars and workshops at our in-house academy safeguard our high quality standards. The regular assessment of employee satisfaction and its continual improvement is one of our key objectives for the coming years.

On track

The numerous awards and seals of excellence we have received clearly indicate that we are on the right track. In the previous year, Café Central and six Austria Trend hotels were honored for their “TOP Apprentice Training” by the tourism and leisure section of the Viennese Chamber of Commerce. We were also nominated as a “Career’s Best Recruiter” and awarded a seal of excellence for being a family-friendly employer offering equal opportunities at work.

Traineeships highly regarded

Traineeships represent the basis of our efforts to educate personnel and allow them to complete their training at the Verkehrsbüro Group with a high school graduation. Our traineeships, such as those at the Austria Trend Trainee Academy, are based on the highest international standards. That’s why our graduates are so valued on the employment market. Many young people at the Verkehrsbüro Group use their traineeship as a springboard to secure top jobs. With sufficient commitment, a trainee can take on a management position within just a few years of graduating.

“As Austria’s largest employer in the tourism sector, we offer job security in a growing industry and excellent career perspectives for the future. Our more than 3,000 personnel are the foundations upon which our success is built. Working in tourism is more than just a job. We serve our customers with maximum commitment and dedication every day.
