With some customers, like Mayr-Melnhof, I have been working together for many years. You know the requirements of the company very well and can also openly discuss which trainings work well or where some readjustment is needed, e.g. if the group is not yet completely homogeneous. Continuous training also means continuous change and improvement. Open communication about this is very important to me.
There are numerous but sometimes also complex subsidies for company trainings. Both the Public Employment Service Austria (AMS) as well as the Austrian Federal Provinces offer a variety of funding models for the qualification of employees. We support you in applying for the funding.
Find a short overview below; in case of further questions or further information please contact our company service team.
- Qualification grant for employees More Less
The Public Employment Service Austria supports the training of less qualified and older employees, so even this group can be better integrated into company trainings. The subsidy is granted for courses starting at the latest on 31st December, 2017 and ending at the latest by 31st December, 2018. The amount of funding is 50% of the cost incurred.
- Education benefits during educational leave More Less
In case of an educational leave the employees are granted education benefits during a training of minimum 2 months amounting to the equivalent of unemployment benefits.
- Education Account (Bildungskonto) from the Vienna Employment Promotion Fund (WAFF) More Less
The education account supports employed and unemployed people living in Vienna for qualification and training. The amount of funding is up to 50% of the cost incurred (up to max. EUR 300).
