The 2016 STEM JobsSM Approved Employers survey rates companies on their ability and responsiveness to hiring and developing STEM-skilled job candidates, creating STEM career paths, and in connecting with higher education institutions that offer STEM programs. The Top 5 Industry Awards, introduced in the fall of 2015, recognize organizations providing the best job opportunities in the STEM fields profiled in STEM JobsSM magazine.
Companies participating in the survey were scored on publicly available data and responses to proprietary questions around four key indicators that demonstrate the extent to which a company works to: 1) Provide opportunities for employees to explore STEM careers; 2) Promote partnerships with colleges that foster STEM literacy and that connect classrooms to careers; 3) Actively engage in efforts promoting the importance of pursuing STEM literacy and how that connects to the positions for which they hire; and 4) Promote STEM programs and career paths that actively attract and engage under-represented student populations.
“We are honored to be named as one of the 2016 STEM Jobs SM
Approved Employers. This award highlights Oshkosh’s commitment to
promoting STEM to young people.
“Our STEM JobsSM awards help employers, colleges, and K12
schools better understand the kinds of efforts that are critical to
promoting highly effective, efficient STEM programs, plus how well their
programs are helping students understand the value of STEM and the
immense career opportunities that exist,” said
