Shaw Industries Group, Inc. (Shaw) has ranked among Forbes’ America’s Best Employers 2016. It is the company’s second time on the list, which debuted in 2015, reflecting the company’s intense focus on people.

By regularly soliciting feedback from both hourly and salaried associates, it remains cognizant of the needs and concerns of its workforce and adjusts or develops programs as necessary.

“We take great pride in this recognition as it illustrates our commitment to creating a better future through people,” said Vance Bell, chairman and CEO of Shaw. “We firmly believe that the future of our company lies in the strength of our associates and their ability to achieve their highest potential. We strive daily to create an environment that fosters their development, feeds their passion, and encourages collaboration and innovation.”

Approximately 30,000 employees at companies with at least 2,500 people were surveyed for the America’s Best Employers List. The survey was conducted with global digital data collection partners who use innovative technology and proven sampling methodologies to facilitate a deep understanding of consumer opinions and behavior. Participation in the survey was voluntary, and respondents were recruited from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation.

“At Shaw, our approach to talent management is fully integrated with our business strategy,” said Shaw Vice President of Human Resources Paul Richard. “By clearly defining how each role connects with the organizational goals, we are able to provide clarity around leadership expectation at every level and what is required to advance through the company. This transparency drives associates’ engagement and accelerates our ability to respond to a rapidly changing business environment.”
