Invent Human Resources
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.
When we were young and when I was still living in Mauterndorf, the village where I grew up, we often went to Kärnten, which is the state located in the south of Austria.
There are a few lakes and the weather in summer is very warm. We went there for swimming and spent mostly the whole day there though it is only half an hour by car.
This year, I brought my two girls to my partents, to spend some weeks with them and before I returned to Switzerland, I went to Kärnten, together with my brother and his family.
It was like 20 years ago. We went to Wörthersee, which is a very famous lake. There was also a series on TV about a castle hotel located at this lake. The weather was very warm, the water was tremendous warm. I think it had 25 degree. It was a wonderful day. And the girls were very happy.
My brother took two bikes with him and we did a short tour round the lake in the morning. Was also very funny, only 40 kilometers, where you could go as fast a possible. We had one and half an hour.
