Ranked #1 in the Industry Category of Construction and Real Estate sector, Hilti India prides itself on its strong emphasis of employee-centric work culture. Pankaj Gupta, President, Hilti India, about what differentiates the company from others of its ilk and he replies, “Our culture is what differentiates us from other organizations; we invest heavily in building this culture. From our ‘culture journey’ initiative, to our focus on employee development, to our great products, all these efforts are directed to create enthusiastic customers.” The company’s year long ‘Let’s Stay Together’ program ensures a new team member’s painless initiation to becoming an enthusiastic stakeholder contributing to the company’s growth. Employees find that their emotional bonding with colleagues and the workplace grows through the year as a result of hand-holding by team leaders, warmth exuded by those around and congratulatory messages on successes or important personal occasions on a regular basis.
Hiring of employees is based on the company’s principles of selecting the right talent and developing it in conformance with its globally consistent, business related behavioral dimensions to reach excellence. The ‘Our Culture Journey’ program is held periodically and reinforces strong work values in employees. The core values highlighted to employees are to act with integrity, demonstrate courage, work as teams and stay committed to personal and business growth. Employees feel so well tuned into the work ethos that even with little managerial supervision in field offices, they handle their freedom responsibly. The leadership considers this global initiative to be their differentiator as it empowers and nurtures people. Leaders themselves lead by example and interact with teams over lunch and other brainstorming sessions to bring in transparency. Employees believe that they are stakeholders into the company’s growth and remain invested in improving processes by giving suggestions in these forums.
Recognition programs acknowledge efforts on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis at varying rungs.
