Forbes Names DENSO Among Tennessee's Best Employers
Published Sept. 6, 2023
DENSO, a leading mobility supplier, has been named to Forbes' 2023 roundup of America's Best Employers by State, appearing on the Tennessee list.
To determine the recognized companies, Forbes and market research firm Statista surveyed 70,000 workers across the U.S. at businesses with at least 500 employees.
Participants were asked if they would recommend their employer to others and to evaluate their employer based on working conditions, diversity, compensation packages, potential for development, company image and more, according to Forbes. They also assessed employers beyond their own.
"While we are honored to be recognized as a leading employer in Tennessee, all the credit is due to our dedicated team members who show up every day to innovate high-quality solutions for our customers and society," said Marty Deschenes, leader of DENSO's South-Sub Region and president of the company's Athens, TN, location. "Each of our locations in the state are not only critical to making DENSO a great place to work, but also to advancing our mission of contributing to a better world."
DENSO employs more than 6,000 people at sites across Tennessee, a state it has called home for nearly 40 years. While manufacturing facilities in Athens and Maryville produce cutting-edge technologies that are powering the shift to safer, more electrified mobility, the Mt. Juliet logistics center helps distribute those products to DENSO sites and customers across North America.
Together, they collaborate in providing team members resources to succeed, opportunities to advance and the ability to work at the forefront of manufacturing and automotive fields.
