Gilbert, Arizona-based Isagenix International, a global health and wellness company providing nutrition and lifestyle solutions, has been named one of Phoenix Business Journal’s 2017 Best Places to Work. The Best Places to Work program recognizes companies with excellent morale, engagement and retention. Isagenix ranked 15th on the list for large employers (250–999 employees) based on results of an employee survey by Quantum Workplace, Phoenix Business Journal’s research partner.
“Isagenix is honored to receive this recognition, as we’re committed to providing an exceptional work experience for our employees,” said Jim Coover, Isagenix co-founder and CEO. “Employees are not only an integral part of the company’s success, they’re also family.”
This is the second time this year Isagenix has been recognized for employee engagement. Direct Selling News magazine named the company one of its Best Places to Work in Direct Selling based on an employee survey by Quantum Workplace.
In keeping with the company’s commitment to health, its Gilbert headquarters, which houses more than 700 employees, features an on-site wellness center. The center is staffed by a full-time wellness coach who provides consultations and exercise classes including yoga.
Another way employees can work toward their health and wellness goals is by participating in various health challenges throughout the year, including an employee-only IsaBody Challenge. In the most recent employee Challenge, contestants and winners shared in more than $20,000 in cash and prizes.
“Isagenix is proud to offer such robust compensation and benefits,” Coover said. “By valuing our employees and meeting their needs, we’ve created a world-class workforce that ensures customers receive the best products and services in the health and wellness industry.”
Isagenix also engages its employees through a variety of employee activities. An internal team focused on company culture creates events throughout the year including employee appreciation events, holiday parties, and community volunteer and giving-back activities.
The Phoenix Business Journal’s Best Places to Work lists recognize top companies in a variety of industries and sizes. The publication also recently recognized Isagenix as a top corporate philanthropist, a top family-owned business and a healthiest employer.
