Herbalife Nutrition, a premier global nutrition company, today announced it has been recognized as one of the ‘Elite 8’ companies within Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces® Awards, which celebrates the top employers that make engagement, alignment and recognition central to the employee experience. The company was awarded for its global programs that support manager empowerment.
“Providing opportunities for our employees to grow professionally and be their best is part of our culture, and it’s built into the principle that together we can build it better,” said Everton Harris, chief human resources officer, Herbalife Nutrition. “This award is a testament to our employees who commit to making this a great place to work every day.”
To empower managers during recent unprecedented times, and help employees adapt to new modes of working, the company launched three initiatives.
The company launched e-learning platforms globally, offering more than 16,000 online courses to help managers lead remote teams, and help employees master technical tools that became an everyday part of working remotely.
The company launched a new development and coaching tool for employees and their managers to use during one-on-one coaching sessions. The tool served as a catalyst for ongoing and frequent discussions that provided the framework to help managers stay connected and share valuable performance feedback in real time.
The company launched the RISE global mentorship program pilot, which paired its top leaders with junior-level managers, based on the leader’s strengths and the manager’s areas of development. More than 100 mentorship pairs were matched for six months and had the opportunity to focus on personal development, share best practices, and discuss the varying job-related challenges they faced.
The coveted Elite 8 recognition is given to the companies that most exemplify one of Achievers’ Eight Elements of Employee Engagement® used to evaluate the most engaged workplaces: Accountability & Performance, Belonging, Equity & Inclusion, Culture Alignment, Manager Empowerment, Professional & Personal Growth, Purpose & Leadership, Recognition & Rewards, and Wellbeing.
“With employee resignations and labor shortages plaguing the workforce, it has never been more important for companies to commit to improving the employee experience,” said Jeff Cates, CEO and president at Achievers. “The number of submissions we received for the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces® Awards proved not only that employers understand this need, but also shows their willingness to put people first during a crisis. The Elite 8 have exemplified what it looks like to be an employee-first company, and I want to congratulate them on both the well-deserved award and their dedication to their employees.”
