Two years after breaking ground in downtown Provo, Utah, Nu Skin will celebrate the grand opening of its new 18,000-square-foot Innovation Center this Wednesday. The event will draw a crowd of 15,000 friends and distributors to the company’s 10-acre campus.
Bringing most of Nu Skin’s corporate employees together under the same roof, the move will facilitate a degree of collaboration previously challenged by operations across five different locations. The modern Innovation Center houses a data center, state-of-the-art fitness center, offices, retail spaces and research labs. The facility has secured a LEED Silver certification for environmentally friendly building practices, and company officials are looking to attain Gold certification next year.
Extensive glass maximizes light within the structure, which features walking and hanging gardens, two restaurants—including The Spoon eatery, where an Executive Chef prepares a menu inspired by Nu Skin’s products and anti-aging philosophy—open to the public, and a 50-foot LED Dream Wall displaying Nu Skin products, tweets and texts from distributors, and eventually the NCAA’s March Madness games.
With 4,000-plus employees worldwide, Nu Skin continues to experience growth. Read more on Nu Skin’s Ingredients for Success in DSN’s recent interview with President and CEO Truman Hunt. The company’s new location will open at 90-percent capacity, due in part to strong employee retention. “Half of our employees have been here 10 years or more,” said David Daines, Vice President of Human Resources.
