What defines us

Our co-founder, Martin Hilti, considered it his first job and priority "to create a company climate in which every single individual can develop the will to succeed and a sense of commitment while still having fun at work."

To this day, that has been a constant within Hilti.   

The foundation of our success is our caring culture, together with a focus on high performance. We enable and empower our team members globally to think and act with an entrepreneurial spirit, exercise sound judgment and enjoy what they do. Our values contribute to fostering a truly inclusive workplace and guide how we perform, work together, respect each other, communicate and practice leadership.

What inspires us

While you’re driven to be successful, it’s in our interest too. So we’ll invest in your training and give our genuine attention to the progression of your career. This includes regular one-to-one coaching. It’s time intensive, but we believe it’s crucial. It’s how we recognize your achievements and help you continue to perform – for us, for our customers and for your own ambition.

Impress us with your skills and we’ll give you leadership opportunities as soon as you’re ready. It speaks volumes that 80% of our management positions are filled with internal candidates.

We also have a very thorough people review process, unlike any we know of in any other business. We screen everyone in the company in a yearly career performance matching process. It means we can pair talent with opportunities - developing our people in their current roles or challenging them to work in new ways or in new places. It’s how we find the right fit and further our teams personally and professionally.

Executive management comment

“If at first glance you think this industry lacks sparkle, I urge you to get to know us better. You’ll quickly discover that, at Hilti, we’re anything but traditional. In fact, our whole ethos is about doing things differently – from our pioneering products to our innovative sales and marketing methods through to the way we treat our people.

Our drive to outperform is matched by a deeply caring culture, where we take time to really listen to our team members, encourage them to challenge things and develop their careers at every turn.

After all, today’s generation expects new things from its employers, so we relish the opportunity to make ourselves an exciting, progressive and nurturing place to work
