Promotion of Women to the Executive and Supervisory Boards and Senior Positions
Kapsch TrafficCom AG has no specific plan for promoting women to the executive board, the supervisory board or senior positions in the company and its subsidiaries. Candidates are always selected with a view to identifying the best person for the job, regardless of gender. Women are employed in various senior positions throughout Kapsch TrafficCom AG (such as head of finance & administration) and its subsidiaries. Currently two members and thus one third of all members of the supervisory board are female, Claudia Rudolf-Misch (delegated by the works council) and Sabine Kauper (elected by the shareholders’ meeting).
Women are supported through a flexible working hours scheme that is designed to help combine professional and private life. In addition, Kapsch TrafficCom cooperates with schools, universities and colleges in order to increase the proportion of women employed, among other goals. The company also promotes women in the workforce through participation in specific programs such as "FIT Frauen in die Technik" or "FemTech". In addition, Kapsch TrafficCom has established a committee for non-discrimination.
