    Maker of specialized construction tools with a global headquarters in the tiny European principality of Liechtenstein, Hilti takes numerous measures to reinforce core purpose and values and align team members with strategy and goals. These include convening “Culture Journey Team Camps” across 19 different locations and led by the CEO, Cary Evert or a General Manager, and holding an annual all-staff meeting to bolster morale and hand out service awards. The company also eliminated sick days and introduced “health and wellness days.” Their time off policy reads “You shouldn’t take time off only when you are sick; you should take time off to manage and maintain your health!”
