Melaleuca and its employees

Idaho Business ReviewJohn M. Foster |

Last year we profiled Melaleuca and the company CEO, Frank VanderSloot, who famously spent his first day on the job telling employees to stop distributing a tape containing false claims about company products. Melaleuca rebounded to become an Idaho success story.

Television state KPVI profiled Vandersloot and the company last week. The CEO spoke about the good and bad that comes with doing business in Eastern Idaho. Retaining employees is one challenge, but the company has some cool ways of keeping workers happy:

“Melaleuca has an impressive daycare for employees’ children, a cafeteria that the company subsidizes to keep food inexpensive, and there’s an extensive workout facility. The gym costs employees $20 a month, but if they workout twice a week, they get five dollars back. So, in the course of four weeks in a month the gym can be free.”
