Within the framework of "Austria's Best Managed Companies" Award, participants were evaluated according to four focus categories, with an independent jury of experts ultimately recognising the 18 top performers. The award ceremony took place at a gala event.
"Small and medium-sized businesses are the economic and employment backbone of Austria, and the driving force behind innovations", says Friedrich Wiesmüllner, Partner at Deloitte Austria.
The programme is now established in over 50 countries and draws on benchmarks from more than 2,000 Best Managed Companies around the world. Following the successful start last year, the event was held for the second time in Austria this year.
"The Best Managed Companies are role models in all currently important areas of the economy", emphasises Reinhard Karl, Deputy General Manager and Board Member for Corporate Customers at Raiffeisenlandesbank Niederösterreich-Wien.
"This award is a reward for all our employees who do an outstanding job, day in day out. In challenging times more than ever, you need partners who you can fully rely on," enthuses Christian Prangl.
