Silver at Best Recruiters

Best Recruiters Silver Award (logo)

For the second time, VIG Holding has been rewarded with the silver label by Career’s Best Recruiters. This study evaluates around 500 Austrian companies each year. It looks at how the companies present themselves, and how they address and treat job candidates. The award reflects the success of the Human Resources strategy VIG introduced to position itself as an employer of choice. The award once again recognises the efforts of the VIG HR Management team in terms of presence at career events and on career websites, and the high level of service provided during candidate management.
