FACC is a partner of this great initiative from the very beginning. With our 50 nations on board, we are highly appreciating the services of Welcome 2 Upper Austria with which we are able to offer our internationals a comprehensive onboarding focusing not only on company related topics but also covering daily life activities and Austrian specific customs, focusing not only on the “working” internationals but also on the accompanying family members. We at FACC really enjoy cooperating with this highly professional service center and benefit from the dedicated support of Maria Dietz.

Moving to another country is always tough and a stressful experience at the beginning. Hundreds of bureaucracies to take care and think about. Maria helped us since we were in Brazil, from work permit issuance, to finding anapartment. She supported us on every single issue. My son was born in Austria, so she was there again helping us with doctors, hospital, birth certificates, simply everything. I’m very thankful to Maria and all the team for the support they gave and still give to us. 😊

Especially for an international company like KTM AG, it is important to recruit employees from all over the world. For us as the largest motorcycle manufacturer in Europe, it is a matter of course to employ people of all nationalities - especially here at our main location in Innviertel. The Innitiative Lebensraum Innviertel makes a major contribution to ensuring that employees from all over the world can feel at home here in the region and find a new home.

We contacted Maria, when I got the job in Upper Austria. She helped us to find our first accommodation, which would be very difficult without her. She supported us in doing all the paperwork after our arrival. We understood the Austrian health insurance and taxation systems very good thanks to two detailed presentations, Maria invited us to. When our daughter was born, she explained us all the necessary procedures very carefully. She came to our city to discuss our questions each time and she was always very nice to us. We are very thankful, for what she did and is still doing for us.

The decision to move to a foreign country has a huge impact on the personal and professional life of any person – especially, when an entire family is involved. Frauscher is strongly supporting international employees that focus on the business location Innviertel and we have found a reliable and competent partner with the Lebensraum Innviertel initiative. The comprehensive knowledge oft his organization and especially the personal support given by Maria Dietz in many different topics became very valuable to our entire company with its international experts working and living in the Innviertel.

I was introduced to Ms. Maria Dietz by my company much later, but the help has been really great. Especially, the seminars conducted for internationals. In the beginning, I was helped by my friend who suggested me to move here. Whenever I have a question, I ask Maria and she responds immediately. It was in December 2017 that Maria Dietz and others organized a day trip to Steyr for us. This was the best weekend I had ever had until then in Austria. It was great since I met many people from different parts of the world and also made many new friends who I meet during the weekends now.
