Training & Development

      Welcome to the ISG Institute for Training & Development

      The ISG Training & Development Institute was founded in 2001 and has had a significant impact on the personnel development and further training landscape in Austria from the very beginning.
      Today it is considered one of the leading drivers of personnel development and further education in the DACH region and is a central source of knowledge and inspiration for all decision-makers, forward-thinkers and co-thinkers. The essential questions we ask ourselves every day are simple: what drives you to discover potential in yourself and in others? How does someone act who understands the corporate culture?

      What is the very personal role in the company and what conclusions can be drawn from this for the future of the company in change processes in relation to leadership, strategy and culture? The primary goal is to make changes understandable and to see them as an opportunity for personal development. Accordingly, we design the projects and processes personally and future oriented.
      Let’s make it happen – talk to us: Whether in personnel development or further training, we work together to implement your company goals.
