VERKEHRSBUERO is proud of its state certification for family-friendliness: the Federal Ministry for Family and Youth has scrutinised us carefully. As part of a multi-level annual audit, our company culture is examined annually with regard to family-friendly and commercially viable solutions. In particular we have scored points as we offer employees on maternity leave the possibility to take part in all training and further education events offered by the company – this makes the return after parental leave much easier.
Together with the City of Vienna, the „TOP-Lehrbetrieb“ Quality Seal is awarded by the Chamber of Commerce, the Chamber of Labour, the Austrian Trade Union Federation and the Federation of Austrian Industry to companies in Vienna who offer outstanding training schemes for apprentices. For the award, which is valid for four years, companies must meet very stringent evaluation criteria. VERKEHRSBUERO trains numerous apprentices every year; in doing so they not only help meet the steadily increasing demand for qualified skilled workers, but at the same time also offer young people a very practice-oriented education with a variety of opportunities. Above all we are delighted that our Café Central was nominated the top “Apprentice Training Company 2017”.
In our HOSPITALITY sector, several of our operating facilities have been awarded the “Austrian Ecolabel”: Hotel BASSENA Wien Messe Prater, Austria Trend Hotel Anatol, Hotel Bosei, Hotel Doppio, Hotel Theresianum, Savoyen Vienna, Parkhotel Schönbrunn, Radisson Individual Rathauspark Vienna, the Radisson Park Royal Palace Vienna as well as Camping Wien West (and valid EU Ecolabel), Hostel Wien Hütteldorf and Palace Hostel Vienna. Austropa Interconvention, as an Austrian conference provider, also bears the eco-label “Green Meetings and Green Events” and thus assumes a pioneering role in the environmentally friendly planning & implementation of events.
Austria Trend Hotels have been honoured with the “Viktualia Award”. The award for the best projects and ideas for the reduction of food waste is bestowed by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management. Projects and ideas are awarded in five categories. The Austria Trend Hotels received the “Golden Apple” award in the “Gastronomy and Catering” sector – for their particularly careful use of natural resources and the reduction of food waste.
The building of our new corporate headquarters at AUSTRIA CAMPUS 8 (Jakov-Lind-Strasse 15, 1020 Vienna) has been awarded “LEED 2009 CORE AND SHELL DEVELOPMENT GOLD” by the Green Business Certification Inc. and Green Building Council in August 2020.
