doTERRA International, LLC celebrated its 10 year anniversary today true to the founders’ original mission to change the world one drop, one person, one community at a time.
The celebration commenced in the morning as doTERRA’s founders thanked the nearly 2,500 employees in Utah and additional 500 global employees with a bonus that gave full-time employees $1,000 (and part-time employees $500) for each year they have been with doTERRA.
The founders also announced that they would raise doTERRA’s starting minimum wage to twelve dollars an hour. The celebration continued with a Day of Change, where doTERRA’s global family served others in a variety of ways. Employees, Wellness Advocates, customers and the public were encouraged to capture the service rendered and tag it on their social media accounts using #DayOfChange.
doTERRA’s founders recognized that the unprecedented growth of the company would not have been possible without the millions of doTERRA Wellness Advocates and customers and thousands of corporate employees who have helped make doTERRA the world’s largest and Verified Leader in the Global Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Market.
Accordingly, in addition to the bonus and increased starting minimum wage, the founders announced additional events and gifts of appreciation.
“Over the past decade, we have witnessed countless miracles and cannot express the depth of our gratitude for the contributions from doTERRA employees,”
said David Stirling, founding executive, chairman and CEO.
“However, we are just beginning. The future is bright and the decades to come will be even more exciting and rewarding as we continue to work to fulfill our vision of sharing essential oils with, and serving every home throughout the world.”
doTERRA supports hundreds of charitable organizations each year through corporate giving and the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation. For the Day of Change, doTERRA hosted a daylong service project in partnership with Days for Girls Internationalwhere employees and community members came together at doTERRA’s Corporate Headquarters to make and compile reusable feminine hygiene kits to be distributed to women in developing communities throughout the world.
As part of the project, volunteers had the opportunity to learn about the mission and impact of Days for Girls from the program’s founder, Celeste Mergens. The service event produced approximately 1,700 kits.
The doTERRA 10 year anniversary celebrations will continue in the days and weeks ahead, culminating in a worldwide celebration during the doTERRA Global Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah on September 19-22, 2018, where more than 34,000 essential oil enthusiasts are expected to participate.
A press conference will be held at the Salt Lake Chamber on May 1, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. (see attached). In attendance will be the doTERRA founders, Governor Gary Herbert (tentative), Attorney General Sean Reyes, and Derek Miller (Salt Lake Chamber president and CEO and former head of the World Trade Center Utah), among others. The event will highlight doTERRA’s tremendous growth and impact over the past decade and introduce doTERRA’s vision for the future, including key programs designed to give back to communities in Utah and across the world.
