As the leader in essential oils, doTERRA also was named top employer in the packaged goods category
Salt Lake City – March 30, 2016 – doTERRA has been named one of “America’s Best Employers” by Forbes magazine, adding to a prestigious list of similar accolades received by the company and its employees. doTERRA is listed at No. 10 of the top 250 midsize employers nationally. According to Forbes, doTERRA is the No. 1 ranked employer in the packaged goods category, No. 1 enterprise in the state of Utah, No. 1 employer in the mountain states area, and No. 2 company in the entire Western United States.
The companies on the Forbes lists of best midsize and large employers were chosen based on an independent survey among a sample of 30,000 American employees working for large or midsize companies or institutions. The survey was conducted on companies from all industry sectors including educational, healthcare, and business enterprises employing more than 1,000 workers in the United States.

About the Forbes America’s Best Employers List Methodology
Now in its second year, the Forbes ranking of America’s Best Employers is drawn from an online survey of more than 30,000 employees at companies with at least 1,000 people. The survey was conducted with global digital data collection partners who use innovative technology and proven sampling methodologies to facilitate a deep understanding of consumer opinions and behavior. Participation in the survey was voluntary, and respondents were recruited from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation. The mix of respondents (gender, age, region, and ethnicity) in the sample represents American employees. Each employee surveyed was asked to rank both his own employer and other employers in the same industry sector.
