Your growth plan is unique to you

Team member Amigh started with Oshkosh as a temporary Machine Operator. With hard work, experience and support, she is now an HR New Hire Training Specialist with our McNeilus business. Amigh never thought she would be training and presenting in front of people for her career, but she let her growth plan guide her to where she is today. When she started, her goal was to learn everything she could. Her drive was recognized by leaders and she started training new machine operators. As she gained confidence in her teaching abilities, her skillset was sought out by HR who presented the New Hire Training Specialist role to her. Empowered by her career growth and with continuous leadership support, Amigh decided to use Oshkosh's tuition reimbursement support to obtain her Bachelor's degree and was the first in her family to graduate with this degree! We are proud to support team members like Amigh who are dedicated to making a difference.

Wellbeing looks a little different for everyone

Senior IT Business Analyst, Scott, has always been physically active and focused on his personal wellbeing. In 2019, he experienced a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and was fitted with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD). He faced a challenging recovery and needed Oshkosh support. We facilitated his ability to work remotely, because of driving restrictions. Utilizing the Oshkosh Accelerate wellbeing program, Scott was able to build up his confidence after his recovery with a goal to be mentally and physically ready to run in a local half marathon just four months after his SCA, which he did! Caring for our team members' physical, emotional and financial wellbeing is important to us, so team members like Scott, can achieve their goals.

People are the foundation of our business. That’s why we’re so focused on fostering a People First culture: a culture that empowers team members, inspires collaboration and prioritizes personal and professional development.

Industry-leading innovations

There’s no tried and true formula for industry-leading innovation. For Design Engineer Megan Schultz, it started with impossibility. The JLG 1932R electric scissor lift looked almost impossible on paper, requiring a set of technologies at a price point that seemed unattainable. Undeterred, Megan and her team examined more than 60,000 possible combinations of parts and technologies to identify the ideal configuration for the new equipment, closely reviewing each detail to ensure the equipment could maximize performance without sacrificing value. Launched in 2016, the 1932R is JLG’s newest 19-foot scissor lift and plays an integral role in their industry leading product portfolio.
