The Lower Austria Railways were awarded second place in the public company category in the Lower Austrian state competition for “Family-Friendly Business 2023/2024”. This honor is further recognition for the company, which has already received several awards for its exemplary corporate culture, including certifications as a “Great Place to Work”, one of the “Best Employers in Austria” and as a “Best Workplace for Young Talents”.

With six cable cars, two mountain railways and a total of 350 employees, Niederösterreich Bahnen is the largest mobility provider in the country. The company not only offers a variety of jobs, but also attaches great importance to the satisfaction and well-being of its workforce. According to a survey by Great Place to Work™, 93 percent of employees said that Lower Austria Railways is a very good place to work. Nine out of ten employees want to stay with the company long-term and particularly value the strong team spirit.

The managing director of Niederösterreich Bahnen, Barbara Komarek, emphasized the importance of family-friendliness in the corporate culture: “For us, it is natural to take the family situation of our employees into account. In doing so, we create an atmosphere in which mothers and fathers have the same opportunities and opportunities at all hierarchical levels.”

With a proportion of women of 37 percent, the company is well above the rail industry's industry figure of 13,11 percent. Measures such as flexible working hours, maternity leave models, home office, family days and a discount card for employees help to make Niederösterreich Bahnen a particularly attractive place to work.
