Take a look at some of our flexible working solutions and how this supports our team members to find a good balance between their private life and their career at Hilti.

My working time

Our employees can organize contractually agreed working hours flexibly to suit their needs. This provides greater flexibility – both for team members and for the company. 

 

"Hello, my name is Emma from the Legal team in UK and I would like to share how Hilti supports me to care for my young son."

My time off

At Hilti, we provide a framework for team members to take time off. This could be taking a few days off at short notice. Or having longer periods of absence to fulfil personal wishes (sabbaticals, extended parental leaves).

 

"Hello, I’m Étienne, Business Coach in Switzerland and I would like to share how Hilti supported me when I decided to take some time off in form of a sabbatical."

My family time

One person might want some more time off after birth of their children, another may need some time out to look after their parents. Hilti offers the flexibility that employees need to respond to changes in the family environment, whether it's a change to working hours, unpaid absence or additional days off.

 

"Hi, I am Anne from Legal in the US and I want to share how Hilti supported me in the time when I gave birth to my first child."

My Workplace

Not all functions and activities require the constant presence of employees in the office. We create greater freedom by offering solutions such as remote working and home office so that tasks can also be completed elsewhere.

"Hello, I’m Ximena and I'm a marketing manager based in our Headquarters in  Liechtenstein. As a mother, I appreciate that Hilti gives me a lot of flexibility and support: I can work from home if needed, and can organize my tasks per my family situation.

My retirement

After years of intensive employment, priorities may change. We’ve a number of options for employees in the retirement phase of their careers.

"Hello, I’m Ady from Sales in UK and I would like to share how I managed to continue working in a job I love instead of retiring."
