SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --   USANA Health Sciences Inc. (NYSE: USNA), a global nutritional supplements company, has been named one of America's "Best Places to Work" by Outside magazine for a fifth consecutive year, ranking No. 18 out of the Top 100 companies in the country.

It spotlights companies that offer the best perks, including those with the "Best Office Culture," "Fitness-Friendly" facilities and the most liberal "Flex Time" policies.

"We make sure our employees have everything they need to lead healthy, productive lives by providing them with benefits such as a fully equipped gym, wellness consulting, monthly massages and an employee cafe stocked with affordable, fresh food," said USANA Chief Communication Officer Dan Macuga. "Our Associates and customers rely on us to come to work excited to do the best we can each day. Having a supportive work environment helps motivate our employees to do just that."

More than 600 USANA employees in Utah enjoy impressive workplace benefits, including an annual profit-sharing program, free monthly company health products, excellent health and life insurance packages and regular health fairs. USANA's efforts have also earned it standings on Utah Business magazine's " Best Companies to Work in Utah" and PR News' list of "Top Places to Work in PR".

"We are thrilled that our commitment to creating a great workplace has been recognized by  Outside magazine for a fifth consecutive year," said Kevin Guest, USANA's president of the Americas, Europe and South Pacific. "Earning this title demonstrates that USANA really lives by its motto—helping you love life and live it—and works tirelessly to create a positive and engaging work environment for its employees."

Outside's "Best Places to Work" project celebrates the innovative companies setting a new standard for a healthy work-life balance. The list was compiled with the help of the Outdoor Industry Association and  Best Companies Group. The yearlong selection process began with an outreach effort that identified a wide range of nonprofit and for-profit organizations with at least 15 employees working in an office in the United States. Participating companies were sent confidential employee-satisfaction surveys and employer-questionnaires to collect information about benefits, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs. The experts at the Best Companies Group then analyzed the results and selected the companies that best enable employees to pursue active lifestyles while also supporting their social and environmental contributions.

"We're proud to publicize the efforts of these 100 companies," said Outside editor Christopher Keyes. "They each show a real commitment to creating active, healthy work environments and put a premium on innovative benefits. Year after year, Outside's Best Places to Work program demonstrates that America's most successful companies are the ones that consistently promote true work-life balance for their employees."
