YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS NAMED TO 2016 DSA TOP 20

Lehi, UT – June 10, 2016 – Young Living Essential Oils, LC, the world leader in essential oils, today announced that it was named by the Direct Selling Association (DSA) to its 2016 DSA Top 20, a prestigious honor bestowed annually on the largest direct selling companies in the United States by domestic net sales.

“Young Living creates economic opportunities for thousands of Americans,” said Joseph N. Mariano, DSA’s President. “I want to congratulate your team for its devotion to your customers and salespeople, as well as for the work you do with DSA in support of an ethical marketplace. Sales don’t just happen, they are earned by companies like Young Living that build trust and inspire the confidence of consumers.”

New research on independent contractors from Bloomberg Government, released before the announcement of the DSA Top 20, and underwritten by DSA, validates direct selling as part of a growing economy for independent work. More than three-quarters of survey respondents (77 percent) experienced a high level of satisfaction with their work. Top motivations for becoming an independent contractor included being my own boss, flexibility in schedule, and better work-life balance. More information about the survey is available at www.bbhub.io/bgov/sites/12/2016/05/Workforce-of-the-Future-Survey-Report.pdf.

The DSA Top 20 is open exclusively to DSA members and based on the previous year’s sales. Young Living has been a DSA member since 2015.

Retail sales volume among U.S. direct selling companies grew 4.8 percent between 2014 and 2015 to $36.12 billion, according to DSA’s new Growth & Outlook survey. Individuals involved in direct selling increased 11 percent during the same period, surpassing 20 million (20.2 million) people in the United States for the first time.
