Pasadena, California, March, 2, 2021 These days, employee wellness is more important than ever. Lea Baltzinger, iHerb’s Senior Vice President of Human Resources, spoke with Fortune about the steps the company has taken to improve employee safety and benefits, during and beyond the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
“From a wellness standpoint, we felt we had to do more,” said Baltzinger. “Even though the company has been extremely successful, [iHerb is] a company that has always been interested in people and innovation. This is why I joined. It has a soul.”
From an increased investment in precautionary policies, such as supplying personal protective equipment (PPE) and implementing strict cleaning procedures and temperature checks at fulfillment centers to the decision to pay 100% of employees’ monthly medical contributions until the end of 2021, iHerb is ensuring workers have the resources and support they need to navigate a new, stressful reality.
