Technology has revolutionized our lives in countless ways. Amy Kwok, regional talent acquisition director at Hilti North Asia,
shares how the company leverages virtual reality (VR) technology to make a huge difference in its recruitment process.
Why Hilti North Asia invest on digitalisation in our recruitment process?
Hilti adopts a unique direct sales approach and our account managers (sales team)
visit our customers in person to understand their needs thoroughly and propose the right solutions to them.
With our ambition to accelerate business growth in North Asia,
it’s crucial to attract competent sales candidates from non-construction industries to ramp up our sales team.
In 2019, we made a big step forward
by introducing virtual reality (VR) to showcase a day in the life of a Hilti account manager,
instead of inviting candidates to spend a day job shadowing.
This enables candidates to visualize themselves as account managers in different scenarios to experience and
understand our expectations of account managers in a fun, innovative, and cost-effective way.
