Okuma America Awarded Workplace Recognition

Okuma America Corp., a manufacturer of CNC machine tools, controls, and automation systems, has been named a 2023 Top Workplace in two categories: manufacturing and salary and benefits. Top Workplaces, an employer recognition organisation, bestowed these honours.

Okuma America Corp. is one of 60 top employers in the manufacturing business in the United States, employing 150 to 499 people. The company has also been recognised as a top employer for wages and benefits for enterprises with 150 to 499 employees across the country.

The Top Workplace selections were made based on employee feedback from participating firms. Okuma members were invited to participate in an anonymous employee engagement survey in the spring of 2023, which solicited comments on a variety of themes relating to job happiness and business culture. Nearly 80% of Okuma employees responded to the poll, exceeding the required 35% participation percentage to be recognised for the award. The findings were then compared to those of other participating organisations, with the highest-scoring companies earning the title of Top Workplace.

“We’re incredibly fortunate to have such an excellent team here at Okuma, and it’s a privilege to serve them in my role,” says Jim King, president and COO of Okuma America Corp., upon collecting the award. We are constantly striving to be a manufacturing industry leader, and we work hard to ensure that our workforce is fairly compensated for their achievements. While these efforts are undertaken for the benefit of our team members and customers, we are happy to have been recognised in these areas and to have received these national Top Workplace awards.”
