The DSN Global 100 List
The Global 100 List offers a unique perspective on the global impact of the industry. Recognition of these companies is the culmination of months of research and the cooperation of many individuals throughout the world. Wherever possible, the DSN team seeks out public records and documents for publicly traded companies and nearly 80 percent of the DSN Global 100 data is compiled from privately held companies.
Each year, select companies are recognized at the event for outstanding achievement and excellence in areas of leadership, highest percentage of revenue growth year-over-year and specialty awards recognizing individuals for their achievements and service in the direct selling channel.
The Direct Selling News Best Places to Work award honors direct selling companies where voices are heard and a culture of teamwork thrives. While each organization has its own story, all feature a common theme of successful employee engagement. At the same time, companies are recognized as a place where people truly love to work. Companies can utilize this insight and feedback to implement programs that further maximize employee satisfaction.
