Social security and stability for your company in Austria

Legal and political stability is a fundamental pre-requisite underlying the decision of a company to select a particular business location. Internationally operating companies can rely on a high level of political and social stability in Austria.

Political stability has a positive effect on the social well-being and security of people in Austria. The agreements reached in negotiations between employee representatives (Chambers of Labor and Austrian Trade Union Federation) and employer representatives (Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and Presidential Conference of the Austrian Chamber of Agriculture) have traditionally enabled a moderate labor cost policy to prevail.

Employer-Employee Relations

Managers across the globe give Austria very high grades. According to the World Competitiveness Yearbook 2018, Austria is rated ninth in international comparison when it comes to employer-employee relations.

 

Low Strike Rate

In addition to social security, the low strike rate and the high level of social peace which is internationally acclaimed also comprise a significant competitive advantage.

In an international comparison by the German Hans-Böckler Foundation, Austria once again proved to be an extremely stable business location. Only two working days were lost per 1,000 employees and year due to strikes. Switzerland was the only country with an even better track record, losing one day less each year to strikes.

Secure Energy Supply

Climate change and natural catastrophes increasingly affect business location decisions. Austria has been largely spared the negative consequences of natural disasters, and does not even appear in the risk estimates prepared by prominent international insurers.
