EMPLOYMENT CONDITIONS AND SOCIAL BENEFITS
ÖKK strives to offer attractive positions and apprenticeships both at the main headquarters and at individual agencies and other locations. ÖKK promotes a business culture based on honesty and trust and nurtures a goal-oriented leadership style.
Hours and scheduling
Work hours and scheduling are based on a model of variable flexitime for a weekly work schedule of 40 hours. Employees can freely choose their work schedule within the given limits. The work schedule is created using a time recording module. Opportunities for flexitime, overtime, and additional time compensation exist.
Yearly holiday time consists of 25 to 35 business days depending on age and function.
New fathers also receive an additional week of paternity leave.
Modern compensation system
ÖKK is committed to fair compensation based on performance and requirements. Individual compensation for employees consists of the value of the employee’s function, service, and experience. These three components guarantee compensation for employees that matches their performance and capabilities, but is in line with conditions at other companies and labour markets.
