Calhoun, Ga.—Training magazine has once again identified Mohawk as one of the flooring industry’s top learning and development organizations. Mohawk ranked 38th on the publication’s 2020 Top 125 list, the 14th consecutive year the company has earned a spot on the list and the 12th time it has ranked as the top flooring manufacturer on the list.

“Across the company, hundreds of men and women formally and informally train, coach and mentor employees,” Redd said. “This honor reflects their exceptional work as well as the commitment to improvement embodied in all of our thousands of employees.”

In its application, Mohawk showcased the company’s commitment to safety, operational, sales and leadership training along with its award-winning apprenticeship program, health coaching, tuition reimbursement and industry-leading retail training resources.

The 2020 Training Top 125 rankings were announced on Feb. 24 in Orlando, Fla., at a black-tie gala preceding the magazine’s annual expo and conference.

“The 2020 Top 125 winners demonstrate the magic that happens when organizations tie training to specific, measurable strategic goals, leading to the behavior change, business impact and employee engagement that drive success,” said Lorri Freifeld, editor-in-chief,Training magazine.
