COMPANY / Nu Skin HEADQUARTERS / Provo, Utah NUMBER OF FULL & PART TIME EMPLOYEES / 4900 YEAR FOUNDED / 1984
WHAT I love the most about being an employee at Nu Skin is being enabled to become the best person I can. The company has provided me with opportunities over the years to grow both in my work and personal life. For example, I have come to realize that it all starts and begins with me as an employee. I’m trusted by and valued by my managers. They provide me growth opportunities, which inspire me to do my best daily. With the knowledge and experience, I feel empowered to make decisions on my own. With that, I am also accountable, not only for my success but also for my team’s success. I am sincerely thankful to Nu Skin for helping me grow!
SKY BAO NGUYEN / DISTRIBUTOR COMPLIANCE REPRESENTATIVE II
WHAT MAKES YOUR COMPANY ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO WORK IN DIRECT SELLING? We have created a culture of optimism, compassion, and fun! It’s reflected in everything we do and is part of what attracts top talent to join our team.
HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY BRING THE SAME REDCARPET TREATMENT TO YOUR EMPLOYEES THAT YOU GIVE TO YOUR DISTRIBUTORS? We see our employees as one of the most critical aspects of our business. We work hard to provide them the ‘red-carpet’ treatment with benefits, perks and employee events. For example, during our global sales event in October, LIVE, we invited all employees and a guest to enjoy the entertainment. We also have employee-centered events throughout the year, such as employee experience centers and town halls. These events educate employees on all the different initiatives the company is doing. We also have seasonal celebrations and parties where they can invite family and friends to participate that adds fun and variety to our productive work. Employee feedback shows that they feel valued and are often “wowed” by the lengths to which we go.
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR COMPANY, AND WHAT ARE THE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR CULTURE? We created “The Nu Skin Way” which embodies Nu Skin’s culture into eight simple principles. It’s a description of our culture, both who we are today and whom we need to become. They outline how we act and clearly defines how we can be the best we can be. At the core of these principles is our effort to be a force for good. We all work hard to improve the lives of everyone who touches our business.
WHAT IS YOUR TOP PRIORITY WHEN IT COMES TO MAINTAINING A GREAT WORK ENVIRONMENT? Building on what was created by our founders. In 2019, we clarified and codified the culture that has evolved into “The Nu Skin Way.” We now have a guide as we make business decisions, and can align our employee events and activities to support the culture.
HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY SUPPORT TEAM MEMBERS IN THEIR PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT? We empower our employees to be direct and decisive with their personal and professional development. Employees have access to an online learning system that has thousands of courses on various topics, from personal hobbies; to leadership skills; to worksheets that help them identify their strengths, weaknesses and career goals. We also have managers go through a multiday leadership development program that trains our managers to be more proactive in building our employees.
WHAT IS SOMETHING NEW THAT YOU’VE ADDED IN 2020 TO ENHANCE YOUR WORKPLACE? In line with our cultural tenet of generously giving back to improve others, we have redesigned our employee giving program. More of our employee events will incorporate service opportunities. We’ll be partnering with local charities, increasing the impact of our employee giving through strategic collaborations. n
