Oshkosh Excellence Awards Highlight Team Members and Gives Back to Communities

OEA 2015

From Romania to Australia to the United States, the Oshkosh Excellence Awards (OEA) highlights employees and teams who are making a difference in our Company. From money-saving process improvements to building community, no matter how big or small, these continuous improvement efforts make Oshkosh Corporation a better place to work and a stronger Company.

In January 2016, the global competition took place and team members came to Oshkosh, Wisconsin from all over the world to present their projects to a panel of executive judges in the categories of Delighting our Customers, Innovative Excellence, Human Development, and Environmental Responsibility. In addition to highlighting the teams and employees who submitted projects, OEA also supports the communities in which we live and work. The Oshkosh Excellence Awards gave more than $125,000 to charities chosen by the winners.

For the 2015 competition, the overall winning project was focused around a continuous improvement event at our Oshkosh Defense facilities that increased energy savings and made our Company more sustainable.

Winning teams get to direct donations to a charity of their choice to celebrate their accomplishments.
