Employee Business Resource Groups

Our seven Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs) are incredibly important to us because inclusion and belonging are critical components of our People First culture. For that reason, we offer our team members the opportunity to join a variety of EBRGs. Regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, work experience and more, we offer groups that serve Black, veteran, LGBTQ+ and disability communities, to name a few. Our full list of EBRGs is below.

How you feel at work matters

We’re focused on building an inclusive culture where you feel a sense of belonging and can make a real difference in people’s lives. A culture where you feel valued, included and cared for. Our seven EBRGs help create a space where you can be your unique self. They allow you to connect with other team members by sharing experiences, networking and joining a community that embraces individuality, and are just one way we are helping people like you feel right at home.

Demonstrating we belong

Recently, our Oshkosh Corporation Pride and Equality Network EBRG made a debut appearance in the Milwaukee PRIDE Parade during Pride month. Team members and their loved ones had a great time walking together to show Oshkosh supporting the LGBTQ+ community, living our core values and making a difference in the community. This was the first public appearance for Oshkosh and the team is excited to continue to spread awareness and demonstrate to our communities that we all belong.

The importance of body language

Recently, our Young Professionals Network and Culture Connect 360 Network co-hosted an event focused on the importance of body language which featured guest speaker, Kristin Bock, Certified Body Language Speaker, Trainer and founder of Body Language Blueprints. Oshkosh team members learned subtle yet impactful techniques to demonstrate warmth and competence when connecting with others. As a key takeaway, team members were encouraged to reflect upon what actions they could take to make others feel seen and heard.

Hosting distinguished veteran guests

In May, members of the Oshkosh Corporation Military Network (OCMN) had the privilege of hosting the Deputy Assistant Secretary Margarita Devlin of the US Department of Labor among other distinguished guests from the US Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) and Wisconsin’s Department of Workforce Development (DWD). The group shared our global initiatives for hiring and supporting Veterans in the workforce. With support from our Pierce team, they gave a tour of the Pierce Assembly 41 (Appleton) location, where the team heard from a few Veteran production team members about their unique military/civilian transitions.
