Why we care
At Hilti, Diversity & Inclusion is crucial for our business – both now and in the future. So we're proud of both our culture and our team. All round the world, we feature in best-employer rankings for creating an award-winning culture: one where all team members are valued and can flourish.
As today's rapidly changing world has diminishing global borders, some of our biggest growth opportunities are in markets where Hilti is less established. As products and services become more varied and complex, we face increasing competition. As a result, Hilti is growing to become a truly international, multifaceted business.
To meet customer needs, we must remain flexible and innovative. We also need to cultivate growth through diverse perspectives, education, work experiences, skills and talents. By focusing on Diversity & Inclusion, Hilti will become an even more rewarding and satisfying workplace.
We've created an innovative working environment where everyone can reach his or her potential and develop further. This helps us attract highly qualified, talented people across the world.
"We must employ a diverse and inclusive workforce. In other words, it requires leveraging diverse thoughts, skills and talents
For this, embracing diversity and inclusion is key for our current and future business and will require ownership from top management. We believe so strongly in the importance and potential of diversity and inclusion we've anchored it in our strategy, Champion 2020."

Khadije - Engineering Manager
"I thought it would be nerve-wracking to join a company as a graduate. First job, fresh faced, don’t know a thing. But Hilti doesn’t make you feel that way at all. In fact, our managing director got all the graduates together and spent time really talking to us personally. I don’t think you’d find that in many companies, the management directors sitting down with the newbies like that.
It sounds mad but, at my graduate fair, the Hilti stand was full of happy faces! Everyone seemed so happy to be working for this company. So I went along and dug a little deeper. I used to be terrified about going on site, but now I absolutely love it. You get to speak to all different people and to see projects ‘live’ rather than just in drawings.
No day is the same and that's what I love. I'm extremely happy to work for such a caring and supporting company that provides me with an exceptional career development. If you want to bring out the best in yourself and create your own career path, with the full support of the company, then Hilti is the place for you!"

"I love working with young people and showing them how to grow in an industrial environment.
Our creativity comes from our people, so we try to hire people with a special profile. People who are curious, who want to explore and contribute"
"I believe that Hilti is a multi cultural company because there are people coming from all over the world, I can listen to people speaking in different languages which is great as we can share our background and experience"
