I realize this isn’t my regular athlete update post, but I’d like to take a second to remind everyone that the Miami Heat recently won the 2013 NBA Finals. They were crowned this year’s champions, will get ridiculously flashing and expensive rings and, whether you like them or not, are considered to be the best in the world.
Now what does that have to do with USANA? Nothing at all. But what King James et al., have in common with USANA is determination and commitment to be the best at what they do. And when you work hard, push the boundaries and give everything you got, great things in the form of trophies come your way.
Now, before we break down the latest awards, I’d like to point out that as of today, USANA has earned more than 50 notable accolades. And when you take in to consideration the amount of entries I have submitted these past few months, and plan to submit the remainder of the year, you can bet this number will only increase.
Over the last year I’ve started working with some of our international offices to help them secure awards in their local areas that highlight the great things they offer their markets, and so far it’s been good! While we may be in Salt Lake, we know that the hard work and dedication of all of USANA’s employees is what helps make and keep USANA a successful global company. Hence the new corporate logo and the numerous accolades it’s received!
Since 1994, companies and individuals from more than 50 countries and across five continents submit their entries to the Summit Creative Awards each year in hopes of receiving international recognition for their creative pieces. Unfortunately, not everyone wins, but luckily USANA didn’t face that issue this year and was given a bronze award for its updated logo.
Australia’s customer service department also recently received some accolade love and was awarded its first Australian Customer Service Award! Winning one of these awards recognizes, encourages and rewards small and medium-sized Australian businesses for their excellent treatment of, and positive attitude towards, their customers, and we couldn’t be more thrilled for our Aussie teammates.
USANA is no stranger to the American Business Awards, reeling in more than 20 of the notable Stevie’s since 2009. But this years achievements highlight some of the company’s most recent and impressive accomplishments including the revolutionary True Health Assessment and rebranded corporate image.

Last, but most certainly not least, USANA was named a Direct Selling Association (DSA) Ethos winner for the True Health Assessment, in the Product Innovation/Wellness category! These awards are designed to identify and promote programs that serve as examples of direct selling at its best, and recognizes programs that help define direct selling as a business that helps people live better lives — which USANA clearly does!
