Pleasant Grove, Utah-based doTERRA, a global essential oils company, recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary by staying true to its mission to change the world one drop, one person, one community at a time. The company’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.
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.
“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.”
The founders also announced they would raise doTERRA’s starting minimum wage to $12 an hour. The celebration continued with a Day of Change, where doTERRA’s global family served others in a variety of ways 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 International where 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 celebration will culminate in a worldwide celebration during the doTERRA Global Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah on Sept. 19-22, where more than 34,000 essential oil enthusiasts are expected to participate.
