Oklahoma's Oldest AV Company Named Among Best Places to Work

Cory’s Audio Visual was named one of Oklahoma’s Best Places to Work at a celebration that recognized 23 small to medium-sized businesses along with 17 large companies from across the state of Oklahoma.

This is the second year the 65-year-old audio visual company—which focuses on production, rentals, sales, service, and installation—was recognized by The Journal Record.

To qualify for the recognition, Cory’s Audio Visual employees filled out anonymous surveys via a third-party company who looked for leadership strength, culture indicators, communication processes, employee satisfaction, supervisor qualities, and more.
