FIND AND RETAIN EMPLOYEES
OF SHINY MEDALS, INTERESTING BENEFITS AND EFFECTIVE NETWORKS – A TOUR ABOUT FINDING AND RETAINING TALENT IN THE HISTORY OF VIENNA
Maria-Theresa not only showed a good hand in choosing her advisors, but also found interesting ways to motivate them! In general, the staff of the more than 2000-member court was of great importance. In the end, were the additional benefits of the court the deciding factor in finding personnel? And what about the famous Spanish Riding School today?
What the Habsburgs had in common with the Romans was the challenge of recruiting soldiers and we ask ourselves, how important are values in winning people over? Continuing through the bustling alleys of the Old Town, we are amazed to discover that the Habsburgs not only retained employees, but also exclusive court suppliers!
What kind of work do employees find meaningful? Is it motivating to see projects through to the end? In the case of medieval cathedrals like St. Stephen's Cathedral, this was impossible. Therefore, the question of how good master builders were found during this time is particularly exciting!
Finally, at the Danube Canal, we meet Otto Wagner, Vienna's great architect around 1900, and realize how important his immensely large network was not only for orders, but also for recruiting employees.
