Okuma America Corporation Recognized Nationally as a 2024 Top Workplace

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (March 21, 2024) – Okuma America Corporation, a world-leading builder of computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools, controls and automation systems, is honored to be recognized nationally as a Top Workplace in 2024! The company received the Top Workplace USA designation by USA Today, a prominent national media company, and Energage, a purpose-driven organization that develops solutions to build and brand Top Workplaces.

Award Criteria

The Top Workplace selections were made based on feedback from participating companies’ employees. In the Spring of 2023, Okuma members were offered an opportunity to complete an anonymous employee engagement survey which polled for feedback on various topics related to job satisfaction and company culture. Nearly 80% of Okuma’s employees completed the survey, which was well beyond the minimum rate of 35% participation to be considered for a Top Workplace award. The results were then compared to other participating companies and ranked accordingly, with the highest-scoring companies receiving Top Workplace designations.

Previous Recognition

In addition to the 2024 Top Workplace USA designation, Okuma America Corporation has previously received several national and regional Top Workplace awards. These awards include: a Top Workplace award for the Charlotte, N.C. metropolitan region in 2022 and 2023; national recognition as a top employer in the manufacturing industry in 2023; national cultural excellence awards for compensation and benefits, employee appreciation, and professional development in 2023.

A summary of these awards is available on the company’s profile page on the Top Workplaces website.
