The Association of Equipment Manufacturers was recently recognized as one of Southeast Wisconsin’s Top Workplaces by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
AEM received the Top Workplaces recognition for the past five years and in 2015. In March 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, AEM instituted a universal work-from-home policy to keep all staff safe and healthy.
“The Top Workplace recognition this year is particularly rewarding as the pandemic has impacted staff and how we work together,” said Dennis Slater, AEM president. “I’m so proud of our team and how we continue to support each other as well as provide the best value for our more than 1,000 members that are located across North America.”
“We work to foster a culture of respect, inclusion and empowerment at AEM and this award reflects that effort,” said Judy Gaus, AEM vice president of human resources and operations. “Challenges often bring teams closer together, and we’ve seen that this year as we adjusted approaches to keep staff connected, healthy and engaged.”
AEM is a North America-based international trade group representing off-road equipment manufacturers and suppliers, with more than 1,000 companies and more than 200 product lines in the agriculture and construction-related industry sectors worldwide. The equipment manufacturing industry in the United States supports 2.8 million jobs and contributes roughly $288 billion to the economy every year.
