Congratulations to all of our 2018 Best Places to Work in Direct Selling Honorees!

Each company above is profiled in this supplement, with employees and executives sharing why they believe their company is a Best Place to Work in Direct Selling. All profiles are based on questions presented by DSN to companies. Quantum Workplace, our third-party vendor, conducted the research and compiled the results for this program (please see page 34 for more information about Quantum and the contest).
The Best Places to Work in Direct Selling contest was designed by Direct Selling News with several goals in mind:
- To spotlight the channel as a positive job-creating engine
- To recognize and honor companies that have created positive work environments and become employers of choice
- To identify and share best practices with the wider direct selling community
- To provide valuable feedback and data to participating companies that will assist them in measuring levels of employee satisfaction and engagement
We all know that direct selling is a people business. Measuring field engagement is critical to any company’s success, and consistently delivering on that is a hallmark of the channel. But the field is only part of the people equation. Best Places to Work in Direct Selling celebrates the important role companies play as employers in the marketplace and highlights those companies that are setting the bar for establishing and nurturing work experiences and environments that bring out the very best in people.
Our 2018 contest was open to direct selling companies with at least 40 full-time employees based in North America. Any employer or employee could have nominated their company during the open period last fall, which ended on October 23, 2017. Each nomination included a contact person who received all of the communications from Quantum. After the nomination period ended, Quantum sent out an official invitation to each company to begin the survey process.
Employees were invited to complete an anonymous and confidential survey. A certain percentage of employees at each company, based on size, had to complete the survey in order for the company to reach the threshold to be included. After the survey period was over, the team at Quantum calculated the responses to determine overall scoring and ranking. Only companies who met the threshold determined by Quantum as the baseline for a Best Places to Work environment were announced as Honorees for 2018.
We plan to run this contest again in 2019 , and hope you will join us!
