GILBERT, Ariz., May 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Isagenix International, a global health and wellness company providing
Isagenix ranked No. 7 for midsize companies (500 to 1,499 employees). In total, the Phoenix Business Journal honored 67 micro, small, midsize, and large/extra-large employers with Healthiest Employers honors. This is the second year in a row that the company's comprehensive corporate wellness program earned a spot in the top 10 and the third consecutive year the company has made the list.
"We've created a health and wellness program that really resonates with employees. The 89% program participation rate attests to its popularity," said Isagenix Vice President of Human Resources Deborah Mathews. "Participating employees are reaching, and many are surpassing, their goals. We're so honored to support our employees, and we couldn't be happier that our company's mission to transform lives starts right here at home."
Patricia Melendez, a graphic designer at Isagenix, benefits from one of the company's unique wellness offerings, the Employee IsaBody Challenge®. The annual 16-week challenge is a no-cost nutrition, diet, and exercise program open to all Isagenix employees. Participants have a chance to win a share of $24,000 in cash prizes, with the grand prize winner receiving $3,000. The challenge includes a one-on-one consultation with the company's full-time employee wellness coach to develop a workout and nutrition plan to help employees reach their health and wellness goals.
Melendez is participating in her fourth Challenge. At her first IsaBody weigh-in in 2016, she weighed 185 pounds and had 35% body fat. She lost weight* and reduced her body fat not only by the end of that Challenge but during all three Challenges she has completed. At the end of her third Challenge in 2018, she weighed 149 pounds and had 19% body fat. Her goal in this year's Challenge is to build more muscle.
"I'm grateful to work for a company that provides its employees all the tools they need to transform their lives," Melendez said.
Transforming lives begins at Isagenix World Headquarters, located in Gilbert, Arizona. When expanding its headquarters in January 2016, the company dedicated space and resources for an on-site wellness facility, which the wellness coach manages. The company's noteworthy corporate wellness program focuses on mental and nutritional wellness and provides accessible exercise programs and recreational activities, encouraging and motivating employees to lead healthy lifestyles.
