At Isagenix, we have always believed that “If it’s not right for the Associates, it’s not right for the company.”
Over the last several months, the value of local currency in several of our international markets has weakened significantly against the U.S. dollar. As our products have been historically priced in U.S. dollars, this has especially affected customers and Associates in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
After reviewing and consulting with many of our leaders, we have concluded that the fairest and most equitable way in dealing with this new reality, rather than adopt a change in our compensation plan, affect a price increase, or implement other short term measures, is to implement a Foreign Exchange Policy.
In developing this policy, we also wanted to ensure a level playing field for Associates from all countries in terms of promotion and rankings. Because we are changing the exchange rate factor, rather than the compensation plan, we will continue to use either cycles or USD earnings as the basis for our worldwide rankings and all other promotions, including qualification for the Billion & Beyond: Together We Will Challenge. Also, as BV levels are not changing, this policy will not negatively impact qualifying for Leadership Pools or Rank Advancement Bonuses.
To learn more about the policy and how it works in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand specifically—including frequently asked questions—see our Foreign Exchange Policy with quick links.
Please note that this policy does not affect how business is done in the U.S., but may impact business builders in the U.S. with international team members.
