LIFE AT GOKEN
Goken America is an engineering and technology services company that helps our clients build better products. We were founded in 2004 with the goal of “creating something different” – a phrase that continues to define our innovative approach to our work and our commitment to our talented associates. Simply put, we hire good people and empower them to be great.
Our associates are like family – and we treat them that way! We hold bi-annual town hall meetings and recognize associates with VMV (Vision, Mission, Values) and Service Awards. Associates also enjoy social events throughout the year including tailgates, golf outings, tennis tournaments, summer family events, STEM day for the children of our associates, and our popular Coffee & Cars event – a monthly Saturday morning tradition when we gather to lift the hoods of our favorite cars and swap tips and tricks.
TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
We take pride in hiring entrepreneurial individuals who are motivated by challenging work, and continue to invest in them through ongoing development initiatives. We provide initial training in our technical center for all associates, engage professional organizations for continued professional development and are committed to creating career growth opportunities for associates.
All associates are hired full-time and are offered competitive benefits including health care, dental, life insurance, 401k and paid time off (PTO). We also offer a wellness program (GO-B-WELL) to encourage and educate our associates in the areas of financial and career wellness, in addition to physical health.
