Vienna Insurance Group is top recruiter

A leap to the top

Gold for Vienna Insurance Group (VIG)! After receiving silver in the previous three years, VIG as the leading insurance company in Austria and Central & Eastern Europe, reached the top of the insurance industries for the first time in this year’s BEST RECRUITERS study. In the study’s cross-sector rating of 412 Austrian companies, VIG received the excellent 24th place.

Birgit Moosmann, Head of VIG Human Resources department, was very pleased to receive the gold medal: “We are very proud of having moved up to 1st place. Our heart and soul went into achieving this and I would once again like to thank my team for their dedication. Presenting a professional image and treating job applicants with respect is extremely important for our company’s reputation.”

All Vienna Insurance Group companies strive to attract talented employees whose methods and dedication fit best in the corporate culture. Identifying and developing individual skills is therefore a top priority for VIG Human Resources. Promoting diversity is also very important, as is creating a framework that offers appropriate development opportunities for employees. VIG knows that its success is built on the dedication of its almost 25,000 employees.

BEST RECRUITERS is the largest recruiting study in the German-speaking region. This was the eighth year in a row that the recruiting quality of Austrian companies was assessed. Online recruiting presence, online job ads, treatment of applicants and feedback practices were some of the areas of personnel recruiting examined by the study. BEST RECRUITERS awards gold, silver and bronze certificates to companies displaying a high level of professionalism.
