3 / OSHKOSH FAMILY EXCELLENCE
In addition to providing scholarship opportunities for children of our team members, the Foundation supports the Oshkosh Excellence Awards program, recognizing team members who make an impact within the company and awarding their charity of choice Foundation grants.
The 2019 Oshkosh Excellence Awards brought together team members from around the world to celebrate and present their improvement ideas to a panel of executive judges, who selected winners across categories including: Delighting our Customers, Environmental Responsibility and Sustainability, Innovative Excellence, Human Development and Quick Win. The overall winning team was able to reduce turnover in their facility from 17% to 1.9% by better incorporating our People First culture. The team selected Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to receive a $17,500 grant from the Oshkosh Corporation Foundation. In 2019, the OEAs gave $147,500 to charities selected by winners across all categories.
