Hello HR Specialist.

Full speed ahead.

Having to relocate an employee is very time consuming. This is valuable time the HR Department does not always have. You can avoid this unnecessary stress. We will take care of everything connected to the relocation process.

Hi Expat!

New city, new happiness?

When relocating your residence, there is much to consider. With our help you will quickly feel at home and create the right environment for your well-being and your family’s well-being.

You Are Not Alone.

Relocations of many employees have one thing in common: the HR department normally ends up dealing with it. Often this department is already struggling with scarce resources and this extra work can affect and slow down other internal processes. As a strategic measure, relocating an employee is often critical for the company’s success, which can create additional performance pressure.

Make your life easier. With Step Vienna as your professional relocation partner in Austria, you can benefit from well-founded mobility solutions that have been specifically tailored to the challenges of the modern working world thanks to our more than 20 years of experience.

Depending on the destination and your personal needs, we will tailor the best individual service package for you – from handling all applications to searching for apartments and houses, right through to ongoing support. So that your valuable employee and their family can quickly feel at home in the new location and is able to promote your company with fresh motivation.

Be One Step Ahead.

We should really be called “Step Vienna-Graz-Linz-Salzburg-Villach” but realise that may be too long for people to remember. We have offices in all these locations and can implement mobility solutions from these locations throughout Austria.

Why are we so sure that we are the right fit for your project? Because as one of the first relocation agencies in Austria since our founding in 1998 we have been able to successfully support more than 10,000 people and their employers during their relocations, as well as assist during personally motivated changes of residence to or within Austria, as we know exactly what is important.

As a creative, specialised team, we offer well-founded 360° mobility solutions based on 20 years of experience. In doing so, we attach great importance to trusting cooperation and personal interaction. Our approach is simple, but by no means self-evident: we listen carefully and then provide flexible solutions to your personal needs.

Just tell us where you need to be. We will ensure that you get to Austria as quickly as possible and feel right at home once here.

 

The relocation flow.

Are you planning to relocate to Vienna, Graz, Linz, Salzburg, Villach or the surrounding area? With our mobility solutions, we are there to support you throughout Austria. Or we can support you individually for some of the stages as required.

Preparation.

Proper planning is key. In order to guarantee a smooth move, we are available to support you from a central coordination office long before your assignment and work together to develop a realistic and accurate time and action plan.

We make sure that all the necessary formalities for work and residence are processed on time. If you have specific questions, our qualified specialists will provide answers. In your stApp – a phone and web app – you can access important information from your mobile phone and PC and review your documents at all times. With our Look & See Trips, you also have the opportunity to get a first impression of your future living environment in advance.
