A new list of America’s Healthiest Companies recognizes two Utah-based direct selling brands that are not only selling a healthy lifestyle, but also buying into it through their corporate cultures.
Nutrition and skincare brand Morinda Inc. and natural supplement seller Nature’s Sunshine Products both appeared on the annual roundup by health management firm Interactive Health. America’s Healthiest Companies honors workplaces leading the way in preventive health care. This year’s list includes 158 organizations that have partnered with employees to achieve company-wide, low-risk health status, coupled with high employee participation in preventive programs.
“These winners are a perfect example of how health outcomes can be improved throughout America,” said Interactive Health President and CEO Cathy Kenworthy. “Working with our company, preventive care programs are about much more than just losing weight or quitting smoking—they are a catalyst to transform the way people look at health, well-being and their lives overall.”
Nature’s Sunshine is one of just two companies to appear on the list each year since its inception in 2008. In a statement, the company disclosed some of the steps it has taken to foster a “culture of health,” including a 12-week Fitness Challenge; an annual 5K Fun Run/Walk; gym membership reimbursements; an annual health fair; and complimentary products.
