“We are honored to be recognized by the Top Employer Institute and are proud to earn this certification that highlights our commitment to employees,” Mohawk Sr. Director of Talent Acquisition Paul White said. “An integral part of our culture at Mohawk is maintaining a safe, fair and respectful workplace where employees have opportunities to take advantage of learning opportunities and wellness programs.”

Thus far, the Top Employer Institute has certified approximately 1200 companies in 116 countries.

Community involvement, world-class safety standards, award-winning training, customizable benefits packages and a nationally recognized apprenticeship program are all part of Mohawk’s holistic value proposition for employees, which recently led to Forbes rating Mohawk as the top flooring manufacturer on the magazine’s annual list of America’s Best Large Employers.
