We all face many challenges every day and have to combine many aspects of our lives. That's why we want to create a working environment for our employees in which professional and personal priorities have enough space.

That's what we call life balance. Our holistic package of measures includes elements for sustainability, family life, sport and mobility. Regional and individual needs of employees are also taken into account. Entirely in keeping with diversity.

I like working from home because it gives me a lot of flexibility and promotes life balance tremendously. At the same time, I enjoy the time in the office with my colleagues. It's all about the mix.

A point of strength

Exercise not only makes you fit, but also strengthens mental health and is therefore simply part of a healthy life balance. That's why we offer an all-round feel-good package: "Keep Moving", for example, is an internal package of measures to promote health, mobility and sustainability.

    • Extensive range of sports and fitness courses from an external training provider throughout Austria (live or virtual)
    • Running events such as the Business Run and Vienna City Marathon
    • Sustainably produced VIG sports shirts
    • Anonymous and free advice from an external employee assistance programme for employees and relatives, including a well-being platform with videos, articles and podcasts, etc.

I just need sport to balance out my daily work. That's why I think it's great that VIG supports us here. Personally, I use different fitness courses and I'm always there for every company run – always in a VIG sports shirt, of course!

It would be short-sighted to think that maintaining the ability to work is something purely private and individual.
Eva Schweng EAP Consultant
Angela Fleischlig-Tangl, Diversity & Employer Branding
The quality of cooperation between employees and the company becomes evident in times of stress. We have therefore introduced an employee assistance programme with coaching and counselling. This is how we promote the life balance of our employees.

Of course I take care of my physical and mental well-being. That is why I appreciate the attention paid here to ergonomic workplace design and preventive health care. Even physiotherapy or massages are provided.
Roman Goldberger Employee Internal Audit
I got myself a new bike for the VIG bike campaign and saved myself a lot. I think it's really great that my employer has initiated this campaign in the interest of sustainability.

Diversity and inclusion

It's not important to us who our employees love, but that they feel good and comfortable with us. Our employee resource group, called "all colours", offers the LGBTIAQ+ community many opportunities to exchange ideas and organise.
