Shaw believes flooring and the flooring industry at large are vital to healthy, thriving communities. We know our industry has the power to change lives and create a better future. From our associates crafting our products to our retailer partners selling homeowners their dream floors– each part of our industry makes a difference in our communities, the spaces we live, learn, work, and more.
The flooring installer brings our products to life. They lay the foundation for the home, the office, the classroom, and more. They are integral to our industry, but like many other skilled trades, we are grappling with a shortage of flooring installers.
That’s why Shaw is proudly an original supporter and donor for the Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF). The organization is committed to strategically addressing and conquering the installer shortage by considering the future of this industry and implementing lasting, sustainable solutions.
By consolidating comprehensive education modules and working with trades schools across the country to advocate for flooring installation as a skilled trade, FCEF is ensuring that more people searching for an enriching career will join the floor covering industry. The group has effectively rallied the entire industry to support this cause and shed light on the many opportunities that flooring installation offers.
Shaw continues to offer resources and our own experts to help FCEF with their mission. Creating a stable and sustainable flooring installer workforce is imperative for driving further growth for Shaw and our customers.
FCEF, like Shaw, is committed to creating a better future for our industry, our customers, and our people. Their work to educate and advocate for flooring installation as a valued trade will empower the next generation of flooring professionals.
