Dalton — Training magazine has once again recognized Mohawk Industries in its annual listing of the “Top 125” training organizations, ranking the company fifth among some of the United States’ most widely recognized businesses. This is Mohawk’s fourth year in the top 10.
For the ninth consecutive year, Mohawk earned recognition on the elite list, which evaluates excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs. The company is the only flooring manufacturer to achieve top-10 status in Training’s rankings and one of only a few manufacturing companies to achieve this level of success.
Mohawk’s high place in the rankings was based on a multitude of corporate training initiatives, including Mohawk University, which provides retailers with world-class training, education and business management resources. Celebrating its 20 year anniversary in 2014, Mohawk University will continue making the transition from a classroom learning experience to a world-class online training facilitator hosting hundreds of learning opportunities – all from the convenience of a computer. In addition to Mohawk University, the company also excels in manufacturing, distribution, sales and administrative training initiatives that underscore the company’s learning culture and commitment to extraordinary customer service, innovation and continuous improvement.
“The value of continued education and quality training programs cannot be overstated,” said Mike Zoellner, vice president of marketing services at Mohawk. “Continual learning is the key to success in a highly competitive economy, and Training magazine’s ‘Top 125’ ranking gives retailers total assurance that partnering with Mohawk provides them with industry-leading training.”
The current “Top 125” was the most competitive ever, according to the magazine. The rankings are determined by assessing a range of factors, including the scope of development programs and how well those initiatives assist the organization in achieving its business goals and objectives.
“Knowing that this year’s selection process was particularly rigorous makes Mohawk’s recognition even more meaningful,” added Susan McGowan Hahn, director of Mohawk University. “It helps to validate the merits of our latest Mohawk University courses, designed to deliver top-line growth and drive store profitability.”
