Meridian, Idaho, March 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scentsy, an international direct sales company that creates flameless candles and other richly-scented home and body products, is recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Midsize Employers for the third time since the company’s humble beginnings on an Idaho sheep farm in 2004. 

Scentsy President and Interim CEO Dan Orchard said Scentsy is honored to be recognized as number 203 among the 500 companies Forbes has acknowledged across the nation.

“I am excited to share that for the third time, and the second year in a row, Forbes has recognized our ongoing efforts to make Scentsy one of the best places to work,” Orchard said.

The recognition comes as Scentsy has enhanced parental leave policies and expanded employee training. Scentsy also continues to offer employees a free on-site fitness center with trainers and intramural leagues, an on-site restaurant and coffee shop, and flexible work arrangements to support its family-focused culture.

Each year, Forbes partners with research firm Statista to compile a list of companies based on an independent survey of 60,000 Americans at companies with 1,000 or more employees. Survey questions focus on respondents’ recommendation of their employer.

“This is a very competitive national award and a tremendous honor for Scentsy,” Orchard said. “We’re very grateful to again be recognized by such an esteemed global media publication as Forbes.”
