Digital Workplace Lead

Liechtenstein, Schaan
Reference No: 12895

What's the role?

Hilti is in the process of rolling out its new digital workplace/intranet globally. The Digital Workplace Lead is the business owner of the platform: driving global employee use and understanding of the new platform, ensuring it is kept up-to-date and relevant to drive value for Hilti, with a strong focus on the user, in particular strong communication and change management. A key part of this is to manage and grow communities, which are at the core of the digital platform.

Who is Hilti?

If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.

With some 29,000 people in more than 120 countries, which we’re looking to expand, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth, step up to new challenges and grow your career.

What does the role involve?

As part of the Corporate Communications team, the Digital Workplace Lead will work closely with global IT and colleagues across the globe to ensure it provides value for Hilti, with a strong focus on training and change management. This is an exciting and challenging role to drive global employee adoption of the new platform, facilitate agreement on global governance processes, gather and prioritize business requirements and ensure smooth implementation of ongoing portal improvement. Many of this is new for Hilti, so the Digital Workplace Lead needs to be an independent self-starter who can maneuver through the organization, ensuring management awareness and support and continually improving the platform. In addition, the person needs to be able to speak the language of IT and communications to work successfully with both teams.

We want your thirst to learn, courage to challenge and desire to improve things, including yourself.

What do we offer?

Show us what you’re made of and we’ll offer you opportunities to move around the business – to work abroad, experience different job functions and tackle different markets. It’s a great way to find the right match for your ambitions and achieve the exciting career you’re after.

We have a very thorough people review process, unlike any we know of in any other business. We screen everyone in the company in a yearly career performance matching process. It means we can pair talent with opportunities - developing our people in their current roles or challenging them to work in new ways or in new places. It’s how we find the right fit and further our teams personally and professionally.

Additionally, we offer you a competitive salary and a wide range of benefits, these may include day care for your kids or a free in-house gym.

Why should you apply?

If you are interested in quickly taking responsibility as part of our digital communications team and really making an impact by contributing to the further development of our global communications strategy, we are keen to get to know you.

What you need is:

  • Demonstrated experience running and measuring the value of digital platforms
