Daughters get a taste at Postbus

Getting girls interested in technical professions

It is important for Postbus to get many women interested in technical fields and the driving profession. That is why Postbus participated in this year's Daughters' Day.

As part of this year's Vienna Daughter's Day on April 28, ÖBB offered a total of 70 girls an exciting program to discover the world of buses and trains and learn about new training paths in technical professions. 45 girls between the ages of eleven and 16 were allowed to take the Postbus to Vösendorf, where they were welcomed by Postbus board member Silvia Kaupa-Götzl. This is because it is important for Postbus to awaken the interest of many women in technical areas and the driving profession and to get girls excited about non-traditional professions.

Together, the girls visited Postbus traffic management in Vösendorf, where they were able to take a look at the planning and dispatching center. They also learned more about bus technology by taking a tour of the workshop.

There is room for improvement in the proportion of women

Currently, the proportion of women at Postbus is just under 10 percent. This means that the proportion has almost tripled since 2015. There is room for improvement, and many scientific studies prove it: Diverse teams make a significant contribution to making a company successful and ensure a good working atmosphere.
Perhaps we were able to get many young girls excited about Postbus and the diverse job opportunities during Daughter's Day and welcome some of them as employees in a few years.
