Hilti ranked eighth in the World’s Best Workplaces, 2022Published 19/12, 2022 at 15:45
This is the sixth time in the past 11years in which Hilti has received the coveted GPTW recognition. The ranking captures the perspective of both the employees and the organisation, the former accounting for two-thirds of the final score.
The employees share their perspective via an anonymous survey (Trust Index) while the organisation reports on a list of key performance indicators (Culture Brief) and undergoes an evaluation of its human resources processes and measures (Culture Audit) conducted by GPTW. To be recognised as one of the best workplaces, organisations must achieve a Trust Index of at least 70% and meet the criteria established in the Culture Audit.
“Our company’s caring and performance oriented culture is the foundation of our success. Hilti’s business model is built on direct customer relationships and innovation, so our team members are the key to this success. We are relying on highly engaged, self-motivated and skilled colleagues to do their best every day! It is our deep conviction, and data supports this, that only engaged employees can lead to loyal customers. This is why we cater equally to the bottom line and to the engagement and well-being of our teams. Being recognised as one of the best companies to work for globally is extremely gratifying, as it confirms that we ‘walk the talk’,” stated Matthias Gillner, member of the Executive Board.
