Companies that do good – Mohawk

Companies that are striving to make a difference in the world aren’t as rare as they once were. Increasingly, businesses are looking beyond simple profit and committing to doing their bit for the planet’s future - like US-based flooring manufacturer, Mohawk. A business not only taking a firm stand to help protect the environment but working hard to improve quality of life and wellbeing both in the workplace and for its wider community.

 

Name: Mohawk

Description: Flooring manufacturer

HQ Location: Calhoun, Georgia (US)

 

Eco-friendly products
Mohawk manufactures flooring products. But, there’s a twist – the company favours recycled and renewable materials. Take their EverStrand carpet for example, which is made from recycled plastic bottles that might otherwise be bobbing around in a nearby river. The bottles are simply ground into chips, cut into pellets and converted into premium fibre. They are then spun into yarn, turned into carpet. Every minute, Mohawk’s factory turns 14,000 recycled plastic bottles into stain-resistant carpets, to-date having transformed an impressive 30 billion discarded plastic bottles into useful products, ensuring they don’t end up harming the environment.

 

Charity commitment
In addition to producing sustainable flooring, Mohawk makes sure to give back to local communities. The company has partnered with US non-profit organisation, United Way, to help families and elderly people in need. Mohawk also donates to the Floor Covering Industry Foundation which assists people who’ve worked in the flooring industry and now struggle financially due to illness, disabilities, and other life-altering hardships. But Mohawk’s charity commitment doesn’t stop there, the manufacturer has its own foundation to raise money for non-profit organisations operating where the company’s facilities are located.

 

Workplace initiatives
Another way Mohawk is doing its part for society is by ensuring its staff are happy and healthy. The company is particularly proactive at tackling mental health issues. Staff have free access to any one of 13 Healthy Life Centres, where they can work with health coaches on their own mental health struggles. The initiative has been a real success as 80% of Mohawk’s employees have used the support services at one point during their employment.

One of my work colleagues put me onto Wealthify. It is simple, easy to use and the communication about your portfolio and re balancing is excellent. I am hooked. I have set up a monthly DD and transfer spare cash no matter how small to build the portfolio. I am maxed on ISA contributions elsewhere so am using it just for supplemental trades.

I'm huge on personal finance, investing and saving. And, for me, Wealthify has allowed me to set up my investment fund, make use of my ISA allowance and make contributions / investments on auto-pilot. I knew that investing into Stocks, Shares, Bonds, Property and so on were all great, long term things to do, but Wealthify has made it easy and dummy-proof... I love it already!

I have found it extremely easy to set up and monitor my ISA. There is plenty of information about stock movements being made on my behalf and it feels like a very personal service being offered by this young company.

Staff is very friendly and quick to respond to any questions that I had. Everything is extremely transparent with emails when they are making drastic changes in the investment plan and as for performance, they did really put my money to work hard with good investment choices and a truly diversified portfolio.
