Austria's biggest digital marketplace, willhaben, is one of the largest internet services in the country when it comes to reach (source: www.oewa.at). It includes specialised marketplaces for property, motoring & motorcycles, jobs & career as well as a no-cost marketplace for private adverts. The recipe for the success of willhaben is based on an enormous number of ads (around 1 new one every second), strong regional content, a clear page structure with detailed categorisation of adverts, as well as excellent customer care. Ease of handling, quick search results and focus on online advertisements provide for a clear profile. Due to the enormous hit rate, with every other Austrian using the portal regularly according to ÖWA statistics, willhaben is recommended as a strong partner for advertising business in the field of digital advertising solutions.
Willhaben is a joint venture of Styria Media Group and the Norwegian media enterprise ‘Schibsted' - a union with great prospects, as the ‘Schibsted' group actually dominates online advertising in more than 30 countries worldwide. Combined with local Austrian market knowledge, this offers a solid base for a successful future.
For the seventh year in a row, the Great Place to Work Institute has awarded willhaben the title ‘Austria's best employer' – this year (2016) winning the category of ‘50 to 250 employees'.
Commenting on the award, willhaben manager Sylvia Dellantonio said, "Over the last few years a lot of things have changed at willhaben. The continuous increase in hits and reach, doubling the number of employees, the move to a bigger office, fantastic business development and top positioning in all our business areas are the result of our success as a team."
