Empire Today® Climbs in Ranking on Forbes’ List of America’s Best Midsize Employers


Northlake, IL, August 05, 2019 – Empire Today®, a leading provider of installed carpet, flooring, and blinds and shades, ranked No.279 nationwide and No.22 in the state of Illinois on Forbes’ 2019 list of America’s Best Midsize Employers.

In 2018, Forbes recognized Empire® as No.346 nationwide and No.22 statewide in comparison to other leading midsize companies.

“We’re extremely proud to receive this recognition from Forbes for the second year in a row. Everybody knows about Empire’s commitment to our customers, but this also showcases our commitment to our employees,” said Keith Weinberger, CEO of Empire Today. “For the past sixty years, Empire Today has taken pride in our forward-thinking business model of shop-at-home convenience, on-site consultations, and next-day professional installation. Today, our stimulating work environment allows us to foster employee potential and explore innovative products, both of which lead to fulfilled employees and satisfied customers. On top of that, our Human Resources team has also done a great job developing and launching many new and innovative benefits programs which make working at Empire Today even better, like Daily Pay, Pet Insurance offering, Fooda restaurant service in our offices, and much more. And that’s on top of holding our employees’ health care premiums flat for four years in a row despite an ever-increasing market.”

The 2019 Forbes list of America’s Best Midsize Employers was created in partnership with Forbes staff and 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 and were asked more than 30 detailed questions about their company’s working conditions, including how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others and nominations of organizations in industries outside their own. Employers who received the most recommendations made the final list of the 500 large and 500 midsize best employers of 2019.
