The Kapsch Group attaches great value to offering a balanced and up-to-date reward system.

Furthermore, our employees benefit from a great number of additional services that depend on the requirements and possibilities of the respective Kapsch subsidiary’s location.

Kapsch University

Kapsch University

For Kapsch Group employees, being involved in the courses offered by the Kapsch University is one of the key elements of their individual career planning and personal development strategy. Just like in the company as a whole, the employees and their evolution are the central focus of the training provided by the Kapsch University. In return, we expect our employees to show a high level of self-interest in their further training, since it is only if there is a corresponding commitment that genuine progress is made towards the realization of personal goals. Further training is not an end in itself, but as outlined in our corporate strategy, it is a key component in securing the future of the company and increasing its own and its products’ and solutions’ market value. We need intelligent concepts and strategies from the best-trained, highly-motivated employees who are competent in their field and at an inter-personal level, put simply, from employees who are ‘always one step ahead’.


Kapsch University is organized in four segments:

The College

The College of Kapsch University is open to all employees of all functions and hierarchy levels. Every year, corridor topics are defined by a committee. These are topics that strategically concern a large number of our employees. In every course or seminar, we try to pay particular attention to the individual competences and needs of the employees. A corresponding evaluation of these needs is carried out during the regular employee review meetings.

The Brain-Trust

Kapsch University is supported in terms of content and strategy by a Brain Trust with membership from various bodies. This think tank meets several times a year to help shape the orientation and focus areas of Kapsch University. The Brain Trust is also responsible for strategic education projects and, when necessary, defines and initiates the corridor topics – topics that concern all employees.

Two committees exist independently from the Brain Trust:


The Technical Circle is a committee of internal and external experts whose objective is to study technical developments and derive necessary measures on this basis.
On the sales side, there is the Business Circle, which studies sales-related issues with the same goal.
The Management Convention is an event for all managers of the Kapsch Group that takes place every three years. The major content issues faced by the Kapsch Group are discussed and worked through here.

Integration & Diversity

Integration & Diversity

The exchange of ideas and cooperation across borders, cultures and languages is a fixed part of the daily business in an international company such as the Kapsch Group. The very fact that in the headquarter in Vienna people from over 80 nations work together, shows that we live diversity in every aspect. In order to support that cooperation the best way possible and thus, to nurture the enormous potential of international and intercultural teams, we very much emphasize on continuing education. Thereby, we raise awareness and create mutual understanding and appreciation with the help of diversity and intercultural trainings as well as language courses.

Worldwide Job Rotation

Worldwide Job Rotation

A company like Kapsch, which operates on a global footing with branches and subsidiaries all around the world, lives by the productive exchange and intensive, cross-department and trans-national collaboration between its many specialists. Job rotation is therefore understood to be a key part of the corporate culture at Kapsch. Staff from the head office in Vienna spend some time in a branch in another country or – conversely – specialists from its subsidiaries work on a particular project in the head office. The aim is an exchange of knowledge and information, productive interaction between different cultures, and a process of getting to know one another which extends beyond borders and language barriers. It benefits our company as a whole, benefits our employees, and – not least – benefits our customers.

Rudolf Bernscherer, HR Manager Kapsch Group, on International Exchange
“Kapsch is about global presence and a cosmopolitan attitude. We are only able to play such a decisive role on the global market in as much as we appreciate and cultivate diversity, creativity, and our curiosity. That is why we offer employees opportunities for job rotation, collaboration with teams worldwide, and an international career. All participants benefit from this type of exchange and flexibility. That is why supporting and also requiring diversity, which is the decisive factor in the company’s success, is so personally important to me.”

Working together

Working together

women@kapsch
The Kapsch Group wants to attract competent women and offer them interesting career opportunities. Hence we started several initiatives within the framework of “Women@Kapsch” that make us a particularly attractive employer for women. Topics such as internal exchange of experience, networking and the reduction of barriers are thereby of high importance. Flexible working hours are considered as a matter of course to ensure a better reconciliation of work and family. We offer that model to men and women – this creates equal opportunities.

Employee events
Solidarity and colleagueship play an important role in the Kapsch Group’s daily business, as these values contribute to a familiar and enjoyable working atmosphere. In order to promote these values and to give our employees the chance of getting to know each other also outside of the office, Kapsch regularly organizes employee events. Be it a summerly barbeque, the participation in a marathon or our annual Christmas party; here you will find the perfect opportunity for a talk off the daily business, an exchange of ideas or the networking with international and new colleagues.

family room@kapsch
The Kapsch Group takes different measures to support its employees in the reconciliation of work and family. Balancing both professional and family life often requires a high degree of flexibility, which is especially the case if childcare arrangements are cancelled at short notice. For this reason a "family room" was established. This room is equipped with a red couch, a small table, toys and a whiteboard and has enough space for up to two children. Besides, there is a working space installed, so that the parent can hold a meeting while the child or children are playing.
