Forbes Names Empire Today® One of America’s Best Midsize Employers


Northlake, IL, March 18, 2019 – Empire Today, a leading provider of installed carpet, flooring and window treatments, has been listed as one of America’s Best Midsize Employers by Forbes.

The news of the ranking comes after Empire Today reached 3 million satisfied customers earlier this year, further demonstrating its commitment to not only its customers—new and old—but to its employees as well.

Empire was ranked 346th nationwide and 22nd in the state of Illinois, where it’s headquartered.

“For the past 60 years, Empire Today has dedicated itself to creating a great work environment for employees to develop their careers and feel engaged in their work every day,” said Keith Weinberger, CEO of Empire Today. “We’ve found that our commitment to exceptional customer service attracts hard-working, positive people that makes Empire Today a great company.”

The 2019 Forbes list of America’s Best Midsize Employers was created in partnership between Forbes staff and the market research company Statista. To create the list, Statista surveyed 30,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Respondents remained anonymous as they were asked more than thirty detailed questions about their company’s working conditions. Respondents were also asked how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others based on a scale of zero to ten, followed by their nominations of organizations in industries outside their own. Employers that received the most recommendations made the final list of the 500 large and 500 midsize best employers of 2019.
