FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ViSALUS™ TOPS CRAIN’S LIST AS “COOL PLACE TO WORK” IN MICHIGAN 2012
ViSalus’ corporate office brings brand to life for employees with open workspaces, fun huddle rooms and innovative technology.
TROY, MI, November 6, 2012 – ViSalus™, the company behind the celebrated Body by Vi™ Challenge, today announced that the company has been chosen as one of “Crain’s 2012 Cool Places to Work in Michigan.”
According to Crain’s, the most important elements of "the cool factor" have to do with employers being tuned in to what’s important to the workforce they want - and providing it.
“Each of our employees is unique with aspirations for their careers and lives that are personal, and when met, transformative,” said Ryan Blair, Chief Executive Officer of ViSalus. "ViSalus leads by example. We cannot promote life, health and prosperity for others if we ourselves don't fulfill those values for ourselves and create an environment that allows our colleagues to do the same."

ViSalus’ office atmosphere is business casual and teeming with young energy. The office itself has an abundance of creative spaces to foster freedom of expression. The company encourages all employees to express their creativity in promoting a happy and healthy work environment.
“The culture of ViSalus is very dynamic,” said Blair. “Employees who love what they do are simply more inspired and productive, both professionally and personally.”
ViSalus currently employs 458 employees – with offices in both Detroit and Los Angeles.
Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Pa., managed the Cool Places program. Applicants filled out an employer questionnaire, and the employees of each applicant company were surveyed. The weighted results of the two yielded 50 winners across two company size categories.
