Northlake, IL – April 28, 2022 – Empire Today®, also known as Empire Carpet® and Empire Flooring®, was honored with a prestigious Stevie® Award at the 20th Annual American Business Awards®, the country’s premier business awards program.  Empire® was recognized for its consistent leadership throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The company implemented transparent health and safety protocols and processes that minimized the impact of the pandemic on business operations, its workforce, and community. Empire quickly shifted to a completely virtual customer service operation so the company could honor its commitment to customers. Plus, the company expanded benefits to support health and well-being, without premium increases for several consecutive years.   

“Receiving this award is a direct reflection on the exceptional team we have at Empire, and how everyone came together when the pandemic hit. Embracing remote work not only helped keep our employees healthy to service our customer, it improved their work-life balance and increased our talent pool. By focusing on health and safety in the last two years, we were able to greatly minimize the effects of the pandemic on our business operations, our workforce, and our customers,” said Empire’s Chief Executive Officer, Keith Weinberger.
