This esteemed recognition highlights Hilti’s commitment to building a healthy work environment that places immense emphasis on employee well-being and growth.
Awarded to employers with an outstanding employee experience, the coveted ‘Great Mid-SizeWorkplaces’ list by GPTW® Institute is compiled after a rigorous evaluation of organizational culture, engagement, and people practices. For Hilti India, being certified for the 6th consecutive year by GPTW is a remarkable achievement, as it secures the 16th rank among the great mid-size organizations in India. The recognition given to Hilti India is a testament to its commitment to employee satisfaction and happiness.
Since its inception, Hilti India has empowered its team members with the freedom to chart their own career development paths. Its culture is driven by a people-development philosophy called MOMENT, which emphasizes frequent discussions, strength-based conversations, and ownership by team members of their professional growth.
Hilti India believes in providing an inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of gender, age, nationality, or educational background. Beyond leadership commitment, they enable employees to become ‘Inclusion Champions’ through initiatives like OwnIT, Diversity Dialogues, and Coffee Connects. Recognizing the importance of achieving gender balance, Hilti India leads the construction industry in breaking barriers and providing opportunities to women, especially in leadership roles.
Even with rapid growth, Hilti India has remained a close-knit organization, known for its warmth and camaraderie, providing multiple platforms for employees to connect and engage. Their unique performance-with-care philosophy actively encourages employees to plan their vacations and utilize their leaves to rejuvenate and strike a work-life balance.

With market-leading benefits, including best-in-class insurance, 9 months of maternity leave, creche allowance, and a long-term commitment to flexibility, they ensure that employees can continue to pursue their aspirations at all stages of life.
What binds everyone together is the culture – ‘The Hilti Way’, which is kept alive and breathed by their ‘Sherpas’ – tenured Hiltians who act as culture ambassadors.
