Okuma America Corporation Recognized as a Top Workplace in 2022

Okuma America Corporation, a leading builder of CNC machine tools, controls and automation systems, is recognized as a 2022 Top Workplace within the Charlotte-metro area of North Carolina. This award recognition was granted by The Charlotte Observer, a leading media company in the region.

Okuma America Corporation is recognized as one of 19 companies in the intermediate-size business category, defined as an organization with 150 to 499 employees. The Charlotte Observer granted a 2022 Top Workplace distinction to 85 businesses for the entirety of the Charlotte-metro area, which has an estimated population of 2.6 million residents. Okuma America Corporation says it is proud to represent the machine tool industry amongst the wide variety of industries that are included in this year’s list.

The Top Workplace selections were made based on feedback from participating companies’ employees. In Spring 2022, Okuma members were offered an opportunity to complete an anonymous employee engagement survey which polled for feedback on 24 different topics related to job satisfaction and company culture. Over 80% of Okuma’s employees completed the survey. The results were then compared to other participating companies in the intermediate-size business category and ranked accordingly, with the highest-scoring companies receiving a Top Workplace designation.

Jim King, president and COO of Okuma, expresses his thoughts regarding this accolade, stating “I’ve known for quite some time that what we have here at Okuma is special. I’m grateful that our team’s efforts to support one another and live out our values is being recognized by those outside of our organization. We’re honored to be named a Top Workplace — the secret is out that Okuma is a wonderful place to work and grow your career.”
