Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) today announced that is has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2018. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 10th year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor.
Oshkosh Corporation’s reviews on Glassdoor specifically call out the company’s flexible work schedules, professional development opportunities, strong benefits and People First Culture. Oshkosh Corporation was one of only five manufacturing companies on the list and the highest rated company in Wisconsin.
“We are so excited to receive this award for the very first time, and are truly humbled by the reviews and feedback from our team members. Our People First Culture continues to be strengthened by our work/life balance, career opportunities, amazing products and the ability to make a difference,” said Robert H. Sims, Oshkosh Corporation Executive Vice President and Chief Administration & Human Resources Officer.
“We know today’s job seekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities to pay philosophy and more. To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognize employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they’re determined by those who really know best – the employees,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder. “Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage. We’re proud to celebrate the 2018 winners as we mark our tenth anniversary of the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards.”
On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide can share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between November 1, 2016 and October 22, 2017. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings across eight workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
In addition to being honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, Oshkosh Corporation has also been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies (2016, 2017) by Ethisphere Institute, one of America’s Best Large Companies (2016, 2017) by Forbes and a Military Friendly® Employer by Victory Media.
