Creating a Workplace Where Everyone Thrives

With about 34,000 team members, operating across more than 120 countries, we are committed to nurturing an inclusive culture where every person feels valued and experiences a sense of belonging.

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are ever-evolving topics with an increasing importance in society. We recognize that incorporating these elements into our working environment enhances engagement and talent attraction while leading to improved business results. With the launch of our new corporate strategy, Lead 2030, we have re-evaluated our approach to diversity and inclusion to better align with the needs and expectations of our team members and our business.

Our new DEI strategy expands our vision to encompass equity, welcoming visible and invisible diversity, and focusing on embracing diversity of thought. At Hilti, our aim is that everyone, no matter where they are based, what their role is or where they come from, feels welcome and included and have equal access to opportunities.

We want to source the best ideas and solutions from various mindsets and perspectives. This will guide us to become a great employer for everyone, everywhere and inspire truly engaged, inclusive and empowered teams. Driven by our caring and performance-oriented culture, we are integrating DEI into everything we do as our ongoing commitment, recognizing that every member of our team shares the ownership of creating a truly inclusive, equitable and diverse work environment.

We invite you to explore a series of narratives from our team members to learn how DEI is shaping their experiences at Hilti and positively impacting our business.
