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 2023."
