Home News Mohawk ranks on Forbes 'Best Employers' list

Calhoun, Ga.—Mohawk Industries was recently recognized as one of Forbes America’s Best Employers for Veterans 2021, ranking 147 on the elite list that recognizes only 200 employers each year.

“We’re very proud to be recognized as a top employer for veterans, by veterans,” said Rod Wedemeier, senior vice president of human resources at Mohawk. “Our veteran team members have extraordinary skills and expertise. We are grateful for what they’ve done for our country and what they bring to Mohawk.”

Forbes and Statista, sponsors of the list, selected the winners based on an independent survey completed by over 5,000 U.S. Veterans working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S. According to Forbes and Statista, participants were asked to give their opinion on a series of statements related to general topics regarding their own employer, for example: atmosphere and development, image, working conditions, salary and wage, workplace, diversity and a set of topics related specifically to the interests of veterans in the workplace.

“We’re proud of our country’s veterans,” Wedemeier said. “And, we are committed to having more veterans join us as we continue to hire for opportunities across our business.”
