Perks and Programs

We asked Hilti, Inc. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • B.T.S: Basic Training Seminar, is Hilti’s 3-week intensive Product, Tool, Application, and Sales Training that all customer-facing team members (i.e., Account Managers, Field Engineers, Fire Protection Specialists, Hilti Center Representatives, Customer Service Representatives, Inside Sales Representatives), Management, and Senior Management team members must complete as part of their onboarding with Hilti. Many corporate team members also participate in this 3-week training, however, a condensed, 1-week training is also offered. Regardless of their function, department, or role within the organization, all Hilti team members are requested to complete BTS as part of the onboarding process.
  • Hilti RED: Hilti RED is an updated online Rewards and Recognition system. Points are gained by team members rewarding their coworkers. Team members can access the Hilti Red Platform anywhere at work or home, on their computer, tablet or smart phone. There is a "limitless catolog" of prizes to choose from which include: Hilti tools, electronics, jewlery, watches, appliances and much more! On top of that there is more visibility for both peers and management to see the recognition through visibility of the social media aspect of the platform.
  • Hilti H.E.E.E.T: Hilti HEEET is a team member-led events committee that arranges various events throughout the year. HEEET strives to provide consistency between events locally and in Tulsa, so that team members experience the same culture in both offices. They execute this by having the same type of themed events around the same time period, such as baseball, cookouts, and more.
  • Our Culture Journey: At Hilti, culture plays a critical role in motivating team members and inspiring them to look beyond the routine tasks of their every-day jobs, and to focus on the ‘bigger picture’ of what Hilti, as a company and as global citizens, strive to accomplish. The company's culture focuses on living out the core values, creating enthusiastic customers, and building a better future! Globally, Hilti invests 25 Million dollars each year on OCJ (Our Culture Journey) team camps and culture-activities. Approximately 2 Million dollars and 25,000 people hours are invested in reinforcing the Hilti culture within North America.
  • E.L.P: Hilti's Emerging Leader's Program is a 6 to 8–month long program that was formally launched across Hilti North America in 2013. The ELP is designed to help us take a more formalized, structured approach to how we prepare talent for leadership roles across the organization. ELP also allows our Executive Management team to get extended exposure to developing talent in the organization over the course of several months and allows the Executive Management Team to play a key role in the emerging leader’s development earlier on.
  • Market Share Madness: Hilti has initiated a long-term, on top compensation and competitive opportunity that recognizes and rewards various departments in the organization for successfully achieving individual and departmental targets. All activities are under the umbrella of a basketball game. Players (Account Managers) are able to earn additional compensation by scoring points, while coaches (sales managers) also have the opportunity to earn by supporting players achievement of strategic goals. In addition, sales teams compete against one another monthly for the most points. The teams that comes out on top at the end of the year will be able extend their annual sales meeting into an incentive sales trip at a destination of their choice.
  • Leadership Academy: The goal of Hilti's Leadership Academy is to provide our team members with opportunities to develop the skills and competencies needed to be successful at Hilti and in life. The required skills are embedded within Hilti's Red Thread Dimensions and are at the heart of People Development. The Leadership Academy offers several classes in a face to face setting for both individual contributors and team leaders. The classes within the Academy revolve around enhancing presentation, communication, conflict management, and problem solving skills, as well as a better understanding of behavioral styles, situational leadership, the sourcing and selection process, and team coaching.
  • Women in Sales: Hilti created an event where women across the United States come together to share sales best practices, network, and learn more about the important role that women play in the construction industry. Participants shared their interpretation of the Hilti experience with a few common themes: strong culture, valued employees, career flexibility and people who truly love their company. This event brought women together who are already in sales roles from different industries, backgrounds and experience to network in a collaborative environment with Hilti sales women. The goal of the event is to disseminate our career development opportunities and culture through seasoned female sales professionals.
  • A Brush for Kindness: Hilti has teamed up with Dallas Habitat for Humanity in their mission to improve Joppa, one of the three remaining Freedman communities that still exist. Hilti will transform 50 homes in this historic neighborhood. The goal is to provide critical repair and maintenance to homes for families who would otherwise not have access to the resources or possess the ability to maintain the integrity and safety of their homes.
