The Great Place to Work Institute has recognised Hilti as one of the best multinational employers in Europe for the eighth time.

This award shows that together with our team members we have succeeded in bringing our corporate culture to life beyond national borders and making it tangible,” explains Sabine Krauss, head of global human resources at Hilti. Ranked 14th out of more than 3,000 participating companies, Hilti improved by 10 positions on the previous year. The European award was given on the basis of this year's awards’ in the national competitions in Denmark, Finland, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The survey results clearly show that Hilti employees particularly appreciate working for a future oriented family business that gives them the freedom to try things out and explore their individual strengths. Michael Herrmann, co-owner of Great Place to Work adds: “It is remarkable how consistently Hilti manages to remain innovative and dynamic over so many years, while maintaining its reliability. A good example of this are the flexible working time models that take into account different situations and phases in life. The trust that the company places in its employees motivates them and builds sustainable loyalty.”
