Young Living Essential Oils recently celebrated the grand opening of its global headquarters in Lehi, Utah, with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting event.
The five-story, 263,000-square-foot building is constructed to qualify for both LEED and Green Globe certification. The design organizes workspace for nearly 1,000 employees around a botanical atrium with two immense skylights and a three-story waterfall. Keeping with Young Living’s dedication to nature and its zero-waste goal, the building has more than 20 eco-friendly features, including roof solar panels, interior glass walls to maximize natural lighting, regionally sourced construction materials, vehicle-charging stations and extensive recycling systems.
“The opening of a new corporate headquarters in Lehi is nothing new,” said Jared Turner, president and COO of Young Living. “That’s why we wanted our campus to stand out. Our goal was to embody the vision of our founder, D. Gary Young. He envisioned a world where everyone enjoyed whole-life wellness. That’s why we pulled out all the stops when it came to construction and catering to our employees’ needs. Employees and our neighbors and friends can eat organic, locally sourced food at the Vitality Cafe, while employee amenities also include an on-campus gym with company-subsidized personal training, an indoor atrium and outdoor gardens for a dose of nature during the workday.”
Additional features include the Skyrider Amphitheater, a research greenhouse and the D. Gary Young Museum, which is scheduled to open in this summer.
The unveiling of the new global headquarters is part of the company’s commemoration of its 25-year anniversary.
