LEHI, Utah, April 22, 2019 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Young Living Essential Oils, the world leader in essential oils, recently announced Employee Service Day, a new paid holiday for U.S. employees. The corporate holiday coincides with Earth Day and provides Young Living employees the opportunity to spend a day beautifying local communities.
For today’s inaugural Employee Service Day, the company partnered with 7 cities, 12 nonprofit organizations, and 2 schools; as well as adopting segments of highway in Lehi, American Fork, and Mona, Utah, and 1 shoreline at American Fork Marina. Nearly 2,000 employees—decked out in matching Employee Service Day t-shirts and work gloves—participated in 33 different environmentally focused service projects throughout Utah’s Davis, Salt Lake, Utah, and Juab counties. They cultivated gardens, planted trees, cleared trash, tidied trails, mulched, weeded, built fences, and spruced up landscaping.
“Young Living employees take their stewardship of the earth very seriously,” said Jared Turner, Young Living President and Chief Operating Officer. “Our new Employee Service Day is the result of ideas cultivated by our corporate team, supported by our members, and spearheaded by Human Resources and The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation. Our employees have a sincere desire to create a positive impact in their local communities.”
Community and social responsibility are a core part of the Young Living 5×5 Pledge. The company-wide day of volunteering is just one of many bold, world-changing steps Young Living is taking to elevate the company’s positive impact on the earth, on communities, and on families around the world.
