OEM Recognized for Workplace Success

MADISON–OEM President Mark Tyler accepted Wisconsin’s Workplace Success award at a ceremony at the State Capitol on May 14. Wisconsin State Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Tony Evers and Scott Frein, ACT Assistant Vice President, Policy, Advocacy, and Government Relations, presented the award. Wisconsin is one of 30 states participating in ACT’s College and Career Readiness Campaign to raise awareness of college and career readiness.

OEM was identified as an exemplary Wisconsin employer as part of the College and Career Readiness Campaign, sponsored by ACT and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

Tyler, a long-time advocate for workforce development, praised the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) for its statewide collaboration and leadership in college and career readiness. “We appreciate Dr. Evers’ commitment to high quality, relevant programming to help prepare our students for success both academically and as members of a competitive workforce. We have great respect for Sharon Wendt, who as Director of Career and Technical Education, encourages meaningful partnerships with businesses and higher educational institutions to provide students with a strong foundation for lifelong learning in a fast-changing world.”

The Workplace Success Award has five key criteria: 1) Strength of relationships with local colleges and high schools; 2) Use of career readiness assessments for recruitment and advancement within the company; 3) Dedication to providing employees with opportunities to acquire new knowledge and skills; 4) Demonstrated effort to create and maintain diversity in its workforce, and 5) Demonstrated efforts of employer and employees to give back to the local community.

Other recognition categories include a community college for Career Preparedness, a high school for College and Career Transition, and a student for the Student Readiness category. WITC received the Career Preparedness award.

Tyler said, “In accepting this award we are honored to be in great company. WITC, recognized for Career Preparedness, is an excellent college serving Western Wisconsin.   We have great respect for the institution and consider WITC a valued partner in workforce development.”
