Ace Hardware Corporation, the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the world, is pleased to announce it has been named one of America's Best Employers in 2019. Forbes, along with market research company Statista, ranked Ace Hardware at number 193, up from the company’s spot at number 330 in the 2018 report.

“It is a great honor to be recognized as one of America's Best Employers,” said Kane Calamari, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resource Officer, Ace Hardware Corporation. “We are committed to our people and the employee experience, and this ranking reflects the hard work of so many throughout our organization.”

To compile the report, Statista surveyed 50,000 Americans on whether they would recommend their employer to others, while also nominating organizations in industries outside their own.

In addition to this ranking, Ace Hardware was recognized as one of the 2018 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation by the National Association of Business Resources.
