Isagenix International, a global health and wellness company providing nutrition and lifestyle solutions, has been selected as one of the 2018 Arizona’s Most Admired Companies by Az Business Magazine and BestCompaniesAZ. There were 187 entries for the award this year, the most in its history. Isagenix was one of 55 honorees.
Arizona’s Most Admired Companies were chosen based on performance in five areas: workplace culture, leadership excellence, corporate and social responsibility, customer opinion, and innovation.
“This is the most comprehensive corporate awards program in Arizona, and due to the breadth of the areas it examines, companies who are selected join a prestigious group of employers in Arizona,” said Denise Gredler, founder and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ and co-founder of the Most Admired Companies program. “This program recognizes the wonderful contributions and impact these most admired companies bring to the state.”
Isagenix Chief Executive Officer Travis Ogden said the company is honored to receive the award.
“We strive for excellence in every area of the business, and our reputation as an exceptional health and wellness company and employer is important to us, so I’m thrilled Isagenix was named one of Arizona’s Most Admired Companies,” he said. “We thank Az Business Magazine and BestCompaniesAZ for this honor and congratulate all the winners. We’re humbled to share this recognition with them.”
The company’s award submission highlights include:
- Workplace culture: The company provides exceptional healthcare benefits as well as a friendly, engaging atmosphere with fun activities such as an employee appreciation event with food trucks, games, and music for employees and their families. A unique offering is the Employee IsaBody Challenge®, a 16-week health transformation program. In 2018, 353 headquarters employees participated in the Challenge, losing a combined total of 1,498 pounds.
- Leadership excellence: The high-caliber leadership team behind the company’s growth and worldwide expansion has led the company to achieve $6 billion in cumulative global sales since its inception in 2002. That team includes Co-Founders Jim and Kathy Coover, Founder John W. Anderson, Chief Executive Officer Travis Ogden, and Senior Vice President of Global Field Development and Culture Erik Coover.
- Corporate and social responsibility: Isagenix has embodied its core value of contribution in many ways in Arizona, from partnering with local organizations to providing product and monetary donations. Most recently, the company launched the Isagenix Legacy Foundation, which raised $2.3 million in 24 hours to support its mission to provide healthy nutrition for underserved children, wellness education for all, and aid for those affected by natural disasters.
- Customer opinion: Isagenix enjoys a strong reputation among customers, as demonstrated by its A+ Better Business Bureau rating. To help ensure exceptional customer service, in 2017 the company launched the Customer First initiative. Customer First makes it easier and more affordable for new customers to join Isagenix and helps customers who wish to become independent distributors better understand how to engage in the business successfully and compliantly
- Innovation: The company’s unique, innovative approach to weight loss features a cleansing and fat-burning system that combines “Shake Days” and “Cleanse Days” using effective, nutritious Isagenix products. The company also supports weight loss through the IsaBody Challenge, a 16-week life-changing transformational journey for Isagenix customers.
