WU again awarded the BGF seal of approval


On March 16, 2023, WU was again awarded a three-year BGF seal of approval for occupational health promotion for the period 2023–2025.

The seal of approval is awarded by the Austrian Network for Workplace Health Promotion and the Fonds Gesundes Österreich health fund, based on strict quality criteria, and it is the most prestigious award for workplace health promotion in Austria.

In addition to the seal of approval, WU receives funding from the BVAEB health fund for implementing its workplace health activities.

It is our goal to improve the well-being of all WU employees, and we are pleased to be able to offer a wide range of health promotion measures:
