Awards

EXCELLENT HOLIDAYS AT THE HOCHKÖNIG

We, the Burgschwaiger family and all the team at the Übergossene Alm Resorts are proud that at this juncture we are able to present a series of awards for the various areas in our hotel. It is not just for the quality of our hotel that we have received awards, but also for wellness and cuisine. Anyone who knows our resort will be aware that it is not just in terms of our cuisine that we emphasise sustainability, but that we have integrated this concept as important pillars in our business vision – and we have been awarded for that too. We are particularly proud of the many awards we have received as an employer.

AWARDS AS EMPLOYER

AWARD FOR BEST EMPLOYER

Best employer of the year 2017 | Best Alpine Wellness Hotels

In 2014, 2015 and 2017, the Übergossene Alm Resort was named Best Employer by the Best Alpine Wellness Hotels. In 2018, we came second in the election for Employer of the Year. More than 2,000 employees work in all Best Alpine Wellness Hotels member companies. During the annual survey carried out by the Association of Best Wellness Hotels Austria, around 35% of all employees were asked to complete a questionnaire with a total 130 questions. The survey content related to employee satisfaction in different areas such as management competence, working conditions, team, work content, opportunities to learn and develop, as well as communication. In addition, questions were asked about business and working structures and employees' sense of belonging. The Übergossene Alm Resort achieved the top ranking as best employer in 2014, 2015 and 2017, and we are very proud of this. 

EXCELLENT APPRENTICE TRAINER: 2019 TO 2023

The high quality of our apprenticeship training is ensured by motivated and dedicated instructors. The Übergossene Alm Resort is proud to say that it has received recognition not only from hogast, but also from the Salzburg Chamber of Commerce as an "Excellent Apprentice Trainer".

STATE AWARD FOR TRAINING ESTABLISHMENTS: 2012

STAATLICHE AUSZEICHNUNG FÜR AUSBILDUNGSBETRIEBE

Our future depends on well trained apprentices. This is why we pay particular attention to training our members of staff. Our efforts have been rewarded.

We are very proud of the fact that we were the only hotel and hospitality business in Austria who received this award in 2012.

Awards for sustainability

AUSTRIAN ECO LABEL FOR TOURISM BUSINESSES: 2011

Umweltauszeichnung für die Übergossene Alm

Sustainability, environmental protection and a clean world worth living in for future generations - this is what counts for the Übergossene Alm Resort. In 2011, this commitment was rewarded with the Eco Label for Tourism Businesses from the Ministry for Environmental Affairs. The hotel will continue to develop the concept of sustainability. It is important to create a symbiosis between ecological, business and social issues. We are using organic regional products, reducing our water consumption and improving waste separation procedures. 

The Übergossene Alm Resort has made a major contribution towards COneutral heating. In autumn 2008, Peter Burgschwaiger, Wolfgang Burgschwaiger's cousin and neighbour, constructed a woodchip plant that reduces CO2emissions by 400 tonnes yearly. All areas of the hotel can now be heated with this organic source of warmth.
