Calhoun, Ga. -- Forbes recognized Mohawk Industries again as one of America's Best Large Employers. On the 2018 list, Mohawk ranked 405 out of all American companies employing at least 5,000 people, which makes the company the highest ranked in the flooring industry, according to the company.
"We're gratified that the men and women who work at Mohawk view their experience in such a positive light, and we are expanding the value proposition we offer them in return for their many contributions to the company's growth and success," said Phil Brown, Mohawk's senior vice president of human resources.

Each year, Forbes partners with leading research firm Statista to survey 30,000 Americans to collect their opinions about their employers. To build the Forbes rankings, Statista asked respondents to rate on a scale of zero to ten how likely they were to encourage family members or friends to apply for a job at their organization, as well as what other companies they would recommend. Participation in the survey was voluntary, and respondents were recruited from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation.
