IMA Schelling Austria GmbH Work & life
Equilibrium of work and personal time
We do some very creative things to enable the people in our company to give their best. Besides offering flexible working hours and individualized training courses, we also offer educational leave of absence and part-time educational leave.
Our system of employee promotion has been awarded several honours, amongst them the 'national apprenticeship' award and the 'family-friendly company' award. Furthermore, we have attained the “Salvus” gold seal of quality for companies who actively care for the health of their employees.
We strengthen your health through several days of action, sport events and a reduced annual fee for our partner fitness studios as well as a company allowance, because we've always thought that healthy employees are a key to company success.
Moreover we offer the following:
Work is not everything. It is our good fortune that our main production site in Schwarzach is situated in the Vorarlberg region, close to the Lake Constance, which beautifully combines magnificent nature, fascinating architecture and inspiring culture. Located halfway between the Vorarlberg Capital, Bregenz, and the small town of Dornbirn, all highlights of the region are just a stone's throw away.
The region around Bregenz is widely known as a cultural centre – through the Bregenz Opera Festival, the Bregenz Spring International Dance Festival or the Bregenz House of Culture that dedicates an exhibition to contemporary artists four times a year. Also the modern architecture of this area is impressive and can be explored on tours of the VAI – the Dornbirn-based Institute of Architecture in Vorarlberg. The little town of Feldkirch with its medieval scene, which offers a completely different architectural experience, organizes not only classical concerts but also an alternative and pop culture festival – the “poolbar-Festival” – every summer.
And there are lots of possibilities for those who want to be active: Biking and walking routes, many miles long, offer fantastic walking, cycling and mountain biking opportunities. The Lake Constance is very popular with both sailors and swimmers, and the mountains turn into a winter wonderland every winter and are a paradise for winter sports fans.
Moreover, we are situated at the heart of Europe: Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein are just a few minutes by car; Italy and France, a few hours.
So to put it in a nutshell: Schwarzach, and its environment, is not only a good place to work but also a wonderful place to live.
