WHAT OUR MEMBERS STAND FOR…
Value Creation within Austria
We all have our headquarters in Austria, generate jobs and pay taxes in Austria.
Our decisions are made in Austria. This allows us to react quickly and flexibly while also ensuring that we are locally accessible, predictable and continually reliable.
ICT Know-How Made in Austria
We are working to counteract the impending deficit of skilled manpower by developing our own ICT experts, some of whom also go on to work internationally. While ensuring the development and preservation of knowledge in and for Austria, we also pursue the goal of increasing Austria’s attractiveness as a high-performance business location and an ICT competence center for international experts.
Bringing More Women into the ICT Sector
We take on a pioneering role by encouraging highly qualified female experts to apply to Austrian ICT companies and supporting women as part of the ICT workforce. (Examples: We employ women in top IT positions. APC has a large pool of female ICT specialists. ICT Austria cooperates with “Wirtschaftsagenur Wien” within the framework of the pilot project Code Studio for the promotion of future female IT specialists among school-age children).
Support Platform for One-Person Businesses
ICT Austria views itself as an enabler of future forms of employment that allow greater flexibility and independence. We support this fast-growing type of enterprise consisting of freelancers and single-person companies. With 266,910 one-person businesses in Austria (57.3% of all Austrian companies), of which 60,416 are located in Vienna (source: WKÖ 2013), these enterprises are an important driver of the Austrian economy.
