Malouf was ranked as the third “Best Entrepreneurial Company in America” by Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur360 List. It also was recognized as the No. 1 “Best Workplace for Women” in its industry and No. 3 for its size by InHerSight, an online review platform that focuses on measuring key metrics that matter most to working women.
In addition, the Malouf Foundation’s OnWatch training was named the best public relations launch by Utah Business magazine at its awards for Sales and Marketing Professionals of the Year. This is one of three awards the OnWatch training recently has won, along with a HOW Logo Design Award and an American Graphic Design Award Gold Recognition.
The OnWatch training (created in partnership with Operation Underground Railroad) is a 10-step video program designed to teach the signs of child sex trafficking and ways to join the fight. Malouf employee Jake Steele is the graphic designer behind the award-winning logo. The OnWatch Toolkit is a collection of marketing tools and assets available for download at IAmOnWatch.com.
For its ranking, Entrepreneur magazine analyzes growth, impact, innovation, leadership, revenue and value. “Our annual evaluati on of vetted data offers a 360-degree analysis of top privately held companies across a multitude of industries,” said Jason Feifer, editor in chief of the magazine.

The company was in the top five for the following “Best Companies for Women” review categories: overall satisfaction, salary satisfaction, employer responsiveness, equal opportunities for women and men, social activities and environment, and the people you work with. They were in the top 20 for flexible work hours, management opportunities for women, maternity and adoptive leave, sponsorship or mentorship programs, and wellness initiatives.

Malouf was awarded the 2019 WOW Education Award, which is presented to an executive or company that has developed programs to educate associates, retailers or consumers about the home and furnishings industries.
