When I went to Switzerland for work, I was positively surprised by the professionalism of Swiss companies. I think, the difference was coming from the internationality of Swiss companies in comparison to Austrian companies.
This has changed meanwhiles. Austria is now a gate to the eastern european countries and has gained a big market share in this area.
One of the very positive examples is Iventa human resources consulting, a company which is one of the leading human resources management companies offering HR consulting and HR advertising in Austria and CEE.
Iventa is a typical example of an Austrian company living this business model: reinventing the old connections to the eastern european markets. Vienna is becoming once again the hub from west to east, the center of europe. More info about Iventa.
