 Brief description of your activity focus
ÖSB is a leading Austrian consultancy in the field of ALMPol, developing and implementing innovative solutions for the world of work.

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
ÖSB experts, consultants, case managers, project managers, organisers and executives provide programme
implementation and consulting services in the field of labour market and social policy for more than 30 years.

Our clusters of expertise are: Entrepreneurship; International Policies; Labour Market Strategies & Research;
Lifelong Guidance; Talent & Health; Youth & Employment

Together with our clients and customers, we develop innovative concepts, pilot projects, counselling programmes
and services, which we also implement successfully — like the start-up programme of the Public Employment
Service Austria, training alliances for businesses, the PES flexibility counselling for businesses, youth counselling
programmes and European knowledge transfer projects.

Our activities are focused on classical target groups of labour market policy such as unemployed, young people,
low skilled, older workers and sick people while consistently applying non-discriminatory diversity approaches
(e.g. gender mainstreaming).

Clients include government institutions, public employment services, private companies (particularly SMEs), non-
profit organisations and international organisations such as the European Commission (DG EMPL and DG JUST) and
the World Bank.

ÖSB operates nationally and internationally and has extensive experience in implementing projects throughout
Europe. The ÖSB manages large scale exchange of good practice programmes commissioned by the European
Commission, conducts research studies in the realm of EU-Programmes, implements mutual learning projects in
several bilateral cooperation programmes and transfers innovative policy approaches to new Member States and
countries seeking accession.
