Scott is veteran of the U.S. Navy, where he served as an Operations Specialist. In contrast to some veterans that come to Hilti, the skill set he used during his time in the service did not directly correlate to the roles he's occupied here. And yet, Scott cites Hilti's culture of excellence and reputation for reflecting the values of the military as the reasons he chose to build a career at with us.
Describing his experience at Hilti, Scott said: "It's excellent. I love the company, the culture and the opportunities I’ve been afforded in my time here. Hilti allows you to move from corporate to the field and vice versa, and experience many different roles. This strengthens your career development."
Scott began his Hilti journey in Human Resources, and then made the transition to sales as a software consultant. Though this shift is typically considered challenging, Scott has found great success in his current role, which he credits as being one of his greatest professional accomplishments. Part of that success stems from one of Hilti's core values — teamwork.
As he put it: "In the service your teammates are everything. You are with them non-stop and depend on them. The same is true of Hilti. I rely on my teammates daily to get the job done. So the camaraderie and teamwork (at Hilti) are very similar in my experience."
Building that kind of team, and incorporating new candidates into it, is something Scott is passionate about. While in the Human Resources department, Scott was in a position to hire new team members to Hilti and give back to both the company and its employees. Hilti, too, is committed to the betterment of our teammates by offering great benefits such as retirement plans, maternity and paternity leave, as well as continuing education.
Another way that Scott gives back is by volunteering at local charities. While in Texas, Scott has volunteered at Habitat for Humanity. Back in Oklahoma, he was a part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization for two years, and was a mentor and role model to underprivileged children.
