COMPANY / XYNGULAR HEADQUARTERS / Lehi, Utah NUMBER OF FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES / 145 YEAR FOUNDED / 2009

THE PHRASE, “going to work” can instill various emotions for people, ranging from the feeling of dread to excitement. For me, “going to work” at Xyngular feels like I have the opportunity to improve myself. Each day at Xyngular, I’m embraced not just as an employee, or even as a family member, but as an equal. Everyone here is enthusiastic about the work and is driven not just to improve themselves, but everyone else. I have been so grateful to be able to work with such great and knowledgeable people, as I’ve found at Xyngular.

WHAT MAKES YOUR COMPANY ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO WORK IN DIRECT SELLING? As a company in Direct Selling, our employees dedicate themselves to help our distributors on their journey to Become More through the product and business opportunity. That attitude and action align with our culture internally towards how we treat our employees. We work tirelessly to develop the skills of our employees to provide them opportunities to Become More inside and outside the office. We focus and reinforce our Core Values through the entire employee experience from when a candidate first hears about an open position to when an employee chooses to take the next step in their career. Some of the ways that we stand out is through the additional benefits that we offer, including quarterly profit sharing and a Healthy Life Benefit.

HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY BRING THE SAME REDCARPET TREATMENT TO YOUR EMPLOYEES THAT YOU GIVE TO YOUR DISTRIBUTORS? We have implemented a system of service for our distributors that we call “WOW Service.” This mentality is to continually find ways to go above and beyond for Xyngular distributors and members and establish personal and emotional connections. We similarly seek to Wow our employees internally with the same mindset. We offer this by offering more than what is expected. We show this care through unlimited PTO, free healthy snacks in the office, twice a month Massage Days, frequent employee appreciation events, a free pair of running shoes to new hires, companybranded swag multiple times a year and more!

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR COMPANY, AND WHAT ARE THE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR CULTURE? We have strategically defining Core Values, which are Excellence, Completion, Ownership, Clarity, Courage,

and No-Egoness. These are not just words on a wall for us. We make it a point to not put these words on a wall, but to emphasize them in our daily communication. We have had employees call out the use of Courage to communicate unpopular opinions that could benefit the company, and our culture of No-Egoness encourages all of us to put aside our own personal agendas in the pursuit of our company goals.

WHAT IS YOUR TOP PRIORITY WHEN IT COMES TO MAINTAINING A GREAT WORK ENVIRONMENT? We strive to create an environment at Xyngular where people can come and be their best selves. Individuals do not need to be afraid of having different opinions because we relish the success that diversity brings us. Recently, we implemented a company-wide Innovation Day, where we all get the opportunity to take off our HR, Sales, or Marketing hats, come into one room and innovate on how we can improve our processes and products to better serve our Distributors and Members. All employee voices are appreciated and heard.

HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY SUPPORT TEAM MEMBERS IN THEIR PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT? Xyngular heavily invests in the development of employees. We know employees may not be with Xyngular forever. However, we hope that through their experience at Xyngular, they leave with more professional skills and have grown more as a person. We have created a Leadership Development Program called League of Leaders, which every employee is encouraged to participate. In these groups, members of different departments and ranks read professional development and leadership focused books together

and discuss the principles learned in them. We offer job shadowing programs for members within the company to learn more about a position that they may be interested in. Flexible schedules give employees the opportunity to balance work and school and personal life. We put an emphasis on promoting internally. Forty percent of our employees are on our Member Service team, and we have been able to promote many from there into other departments.

WHAT IS SOMETHING NEW THAT YOU’VE ADDED IN 2020 TO ENHANCE YOUR WORKPLACE? Xyngular has updated our family leave policy to offer up to 12 weeks of paid leave to aid employees in the events that come up in their personal lives, including paternal and medical leave. We also added a new benefit of Birthday PTO, which we encourage employees to take a full day off on their birthday to celebrate and treat themselves! In our office space, we have added health and wellness spaces to our office with a Mother’s Room, Meditation and Relaxation Room, and additional private spaces. To help focus more on the health and wellness of our employees, we offer monthly yoga/workout classes and have brought in speakers to educate on mental health awareness care.

To better understand how we can better aid our employees, Xyngular has started hosting HR focus groups to collaborate with employees on how to improve the experience here at Xyngular.
