The Verkehrsbüro Group is proud of its state certification for family-friendliness: the Federal Ministry for Health, 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. The Verkehrsbüro Group 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”.
The Verkehrsbüro Group is the proud bearer of the Career’s BEST RECRUITERS Silver Seal 2017/2018 and is also amongst the TOP 20 of the 1249 employers who were tested.

This is not only an endorsement of the quality of our recruiting work, but also reflects the fact that we respect and care about our future employees
