SALT LAKE CITY, April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the third consecutive year, LifeVantage (Nasdaq:LFVN) was recently named one of the “Best Places to Work” in the direct selling industry. The company – which is celebrating its 10th anniversary in the direct selling industry this year – is one of just five three-time honorees and 12 companies overall to be recognized.
“Receiving this distinction is a nice honor. Receiving it three straight years really puts us in rarified air,” said LifeVantage CEO Darren Jensen. “It’s a real barometer for how our employees feel about us as a company – and that’s one of the highest compliments we can be paid.”
Direct Selling News partnered with Quantum Workplace – an HR technology company that has been collecting Best Places to Work data for more than a decade across nearly every industry sector – to measure, analyze and, ultimately determine the industry’s best places to work.
Employees of nominated companies were asked to complete an online survey designed, in particular, to measure workplace engagement – a measure of employee connectedness and commitment that has been linked to better employee retention, higher productivity, and more profit.
Several commonalities were identified as contributing to higher engagement levels in the 2019 study, including personal and professional development, employee recognition, trust, onboarding, work friendships, and employee feedback.
Employee engagement has been a longstanding focus for LifeVantage. The company – independent of the Best Places to Work survey – conducts an annual engagement survey, the data from which is reviewed with each department. The company’s philosophy is that there is a strong correlation between high performance organizations and the level of engagement of its employees.
“A lot of companies talk about employee engagement,” Jensen said. “At LifeVantage, our focus is to quantify it and, more importantly, build on and improve it each year, and I think that’s one of the things that helps set us apart as a company.”
