The management consulting program FairPlusService is 100% financed by the European Social Fund from the investment priority gender equality, and by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Economics. The focus is on the higher qualification and professional careers of employed women with low formal qualifications in companies in the so-called low-wage sectors such as retail, cleaning, gastronomy, care and education. The current shortage of workers and skilled workers in the professional groups and service sectors that are so relevant to Austria as a business location makes the program highly relevant and contains potential for solutions.

The innovative FairPlus consulting approach combines business consulting and business networking with female empowerment, training for employees and communication. This is how companies meet their need for competent employees and women take their professional development into their own hands. The achievements of companies and employees in the service industries become visible through public relations work. You experience recognition and appreciation. Companies present themselves as competent employers. Competent employers offer fair working conditions and career opportunities. You have advantages on the job market in the competition for dedicated and loyal employees.

Our offer

In four Austrian key regions, Arlberg region, Salzkammergut, Industrieviertel-Süd and Wien-Nord-Weinviertel, more than 60 companies receive individual advice, compact training units for women and career coaching for female employees. Employers and employees participating in the project are networked in peer-to-peer events and can present their successes in project communication to the public.

In the consultation, management consultants work together with company management, HR managers and employees to develop strategies and concrete procedures for the implementation of further training, higher qualifications and careers. Career coaches are available to the employed women.

By encouraging higher qualifications and professional careers, we contribute to equality between women and men with FairPlusService.

The advice and all services from the project are free of charge for companies and employees thanks to the funding from the ESF and BMAW.

100 percent equality pays off

There are still significant income and career differences between women and men in the Austrian labor market. The consequence of this is that both the employment potential on the Austrian labor market and the potential of companies and their workforces remain partially untapped. However, the full use of this potential has enormous advantages - for employees, companies and Austria as a business location.

Our offer

The management consulting program 100 percent equality pays off is financed 100% by the European Social Fund and the Federal Ministry of Labor and is working on positioning the issue of equality as a labor market and operational necessity.

In this consulting program, companies are supported professionally, confidentially and completely free of charge in developing transparent income processes and remuneration systems and fair career opportunities that promote equality. The implementation succeeds with the help of the proven specialists in the team. In addition, selected employees will find advice and coaching on career and career planning in the program. Furthermore, entrepreneurs have the opportunity to take part in events for companies and employees face to face or in a digital format throughout Austria, to network, to exchange views on the topic of equality and through specialist input from experts and to learn from each other.


The aim of the consultation is to support companies in exploiting their full potential - both within the existing workforce and on the labor market.

Transparency and fairness are signs of modern employers, companies use it to address future employees who have an above-average interest in development and innovation and thus use 100 percent of the talent pool.

The consulting firms bab management consultancyDeloitteConsulting and ÖSB Consulting form the Austria-wide working group and are 100 percent responsible for the implementation of the project - equality pays off.
