Austria -Investment in training pays in public procurement -September 20, 2012

Contractors that train apprentices are likely to get a better chance at winning building contracts in the city of Vienna after a new pilot project was introduced (starting in 2013) that means companies who employ apprentices will get favourable treatment. The planned project foresees a change in the public procurement rules and is meant to encourage greater employment among youngsters by giving preferential treatment to building firms who take on apprentices. The trade union youth organisation ÖGJ is in favour of a countrywide application of the principle ‘public works only for companies that train young workers’.
