—TERESA ELIAS / DIRECTOR OF BRAND STRATEGY

WHAT MAKES YOUR COMPANY ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO WORK IN DIRECT SELLING? Through exceptional employment opportunities, workplace initiatives and strategic partnerships, USANA is truly an amazing place to work. USANA strives to offer our more than 800 Utah employees an unbeatable workplace. The company offers impressive benefits, including free onsite workout facilities and a personal fitness trainer, onsite CrossFit, yoga, and boot camp classes, a generous annual profit-sharing program, health and wellness training courses, employee recognition programs, free company products, leading parental leave policies, excellent health and life insurance packages, regular health fairs and voluntary fitness contests.

HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY BRING THE SAME REDCARPET TREATMENT TO YOUR EMPLOYEES THAT YOU GIVE TO YOUR DISTRIBUTORS? USANA is known for rolling out the red carpet for their distributors, and they treat their employees with the same enthusiasm. With our annual employee recognition banquet, USANA rolls out the red carpet and recognizes employees who embodied the company’s core values during the year.

Employees are also treated to free food trucks after the Global Convention, free massages, summer and holiday parties, free personal training and personal and professional seminars, annual profit sharing, generous health benefits and parental leave policies, an onsite café, and opportunities to travel with the USANA Foundation on global philanthropic missions.

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR COMPANY, AND WHAT ARE THE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR CULTURE? USANA is a company that dedicates just as much effort in providing our associates with the highest quality of

products possible as it does with providing employees with the highest quality work experience possible. It’s about creating the healthiest family on earth, starting with the thousands of employees from around the world.

USANA’s core values are health, excellence, integrity and community, and those values define the company’s culture to a T. Our employees are part of a global community who strive for excellence, operate with integrity, and put their health first by taking advantage of USANA’s supplements and onsite health facilities.

WHAT IS YOUR TOP PRIORITY WHEN IT COMES TO MAINTAINING A GREAT WORK ENVIRONMENT? Our top priority for maintaining a great work environment is community. We provide our employees with an open and caring culture, supportive management and numerous opportunities to make a difference in the world. Because of this mentality, USANA employees feel safe and comfortable at work and aren’t afraid to share their ideas with executives.

USANA’s executives form bonds with employees at all levels to get a better understanding of what they do and how they can better serve them to make their jobs easier. Employees have more formal avenues of asking questions as well, including the company’s quarterly employee meetings at which employees are recognized for personal and professional achievements, receive updates on the company’s progress and goals, and are given opportunities to ask any question of the management team.

But the USANA community isn’t contained only to the walls of the building. USANA and our charitable foundation allow employees to participate in all their philanthropic efforts around the world. From packing

bags of food for underprivileged children in the Salt Lake area to service missions in Mexico and aiding in disaster relief, USANA employees are all encouraged to help their communities.

HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY SUPPORT TEAM MEMBERS IN THEIR PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT? USANA is dedicated to supporting our employees’ development, both personally and professionally, by providing several benefits focused on improving their health and wealth. Along with the amazing workout facility and basketball court, USANA also provides employees $75 a month to spend on USANA’s supplements and skincare at heavily discounted prices. There is also a yearly challenge where employees can attend onsite lectures about health and professional development, track workouts, and participate in the annual 5k in return for cash.

USANA also offers professional training and a tuition reimbursement program that pays for undergraduate and graduate school for employees, provided that the courses/degree is related to the employee’s job and/or career path or is in the field related to or of interest to USANA.

WHAT IS SOMETHING NEW THAT YOU’VE ADDED IN 2020 TO ENHANCE YOUR WORKPLACE? 2020 will be a big year for USANA, and that includes an exciting new benefit available to both employees and their families. We will open an onsite health clinic that will focus on three main goals: providing a unique health experience, improving health outcomes, and helping to control medical costs. n
