Around three quarters of those surveyed cite attractive salaries and social benefits as well as a pleasant working atmosphere as the two most important factors when it comes to choosing their future employer.
Despite the current pandemic, many companies in Austria are desperately looking for qualified specialists. The attractiveness of the potential employer plays an important role here. According to the latest employer branding study by the international personnel service provider Randstad, for which around 3,800 applicants and future employees in Austria were surveyed, 74 percent of those questioned saw attractive salaries and social benefits as the most important factor when choosing an employer. 71 percent of them appreciate the pleasant working atmosphere and job security. The fourth and fifth place among the relevant factors are shared by the work-life balance and the company’s financial stability, each with 61 percent.
“When it comes to what Austrian employers offer potential applicants and future employees, financial stability, very good reputation and job security take the top three places.”, comments Bjørn Toonen, Managing Director of Randstad Austria.
Selected top employer in the country
Healthcare, pharmaceutical and chemical industry, the automotive sector, plant and machine construction as well as manufacturing companies are therefore the five most attractive sectors for the employees surveyed. Specifically, the Oesterreichische Nationalbank, AVL List, Siemens, BMW Austria and Kepler University Hospital are the top five employers in Austria in terms of awareness and attractiveness.
“These companies are perceived as financially stable by future employees. In addition, they have a very good reputation and thus ensure secure jobs and diverse career opportunities “says Ulla Havas, Chief Operating Officer of Randstad Austria.
