GRL09: Austria Quality Seal Manpower Providers
In the last 20 years, the picture of the personnel leasing industry has changed. Originally leased workers were used to cover production peaks. Today leased work is a well-established type of work - not only for wage-earners but also for salaried employees and doctors. In the last ten years, the number of leasing agencies has meanwhile increased to 1800 while the number of temporary workers has quadrupled. A further growth is expected for this industry. It is true there is a separate collective agreement, which does offer legal certainty. Nevertheless, there are not only satisfied people. There also is criticism.
By granting the "Austria Quality Seal for Personnel Leasing Agencies", quality assurance going beyond the legal obligations is documented by an independent neutral body. For 65 years, OQA's Austria Quality Seals have been a guarantor of certified and demonstrated quality of products and services. OQA is the only body to be entitled to grant and monitor the Austria Quality Seals.
