Herbalife Innovation and Manufacturing employees support their local community
The Herbalife Nutrition team at Winston-Salem aspires for quality, innovation, and compassion. Since their opening five years ago, they were able to expand their team tremendously and provide equitable and generous Human Resources services, and talent development that is critical to our thriving work environment.
