(Calhoun, Ga.) It’s no secret that Mohawk Industries’ success in becoming the world’s largest flooring manufacturer is the result of a commitment to exceptional quality, service and value from employees throughout the enterprise.
With more than a quarter-century of growth, Mohawk has been fortunate to employ thousands of men and women across the United States and around the world whose talent and dedication has helped them to build a lasting career with Mohawk and left a meaningful impact on the business.
Locally, those individuals were recognized at Georgia Northwestern Technical College during Mohawk’s annual Silver Circle Luncheon held earlier this month.Mohawk established the Silver Circle 15 years ago to formalize the company’s appreciation for employees who have been with the company 25 years or longer. The tenure of employees in attendance ranged from 25 to 46 years with the company.
“It’s people like you that set Mohawk apart from the competition,” Vice President of Human Resources-Flooring North America Jerry Hendrix said to the Mohawk employees.
“Your commitment to our organization is a tremendous asset, and your dedicated service has helped make Mohawk what it is today. I extend my appreciation to all of you for your contributions to our business.”
For 2015, sixteen new members were inducted into the Silver Circle, and their careers and contributions to the company’s shared success were honored during the event.
New Gordon County-based members of the Silver Circle include:
The Silver Circle members’ loyalty and commitment for more than a quarter-century has been a driving factor in the Mohawk’s continued success, and their influence on the many employees who have joined the company during their tenure has been profound.
