TOLEDO, Ohio Dec. 15, 2016 – For the eighth consecutive year, Hylant, one of the nation’s largest family-owned, privately held insurance brokerage firms, has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Insurance. Hylant ranked fourth in the medium employer category, moving up from sixth last year.
Winners are selected in small, medium and large employer categories. A medium employer is defined as one having 250-999 employees.
The designation was announced last week by Business Insurance magazine, a leading insurance trade publication. The annual program recognizes employers for outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work and help their company grow.
Mike Hylant, CEO, said this annual survey provides valuable feedback from employees that helps to guide decisions for continuous improvement.
“Our selection as one of the Best Places to Work in Insurance is a testament to how they feel about their workplace, in combination with the high value Hylant places on supporting its employees and serving the community,” he said. “We are committed to providing the best possible work environment for our employees and we believe that starts with strong communities.”
Hylant offers clients a full spectrum of services, including complete risk management services, employee benefits brokerage and consultation, loss control, healthcare management and insurance solutions for businesses and individuals.
“Being named to Business Insurance’s list of the Best Places to Work in Insurance for 2016 demonstrates that Hylant has built a culture in which employees are supported and engaged, which benefits their customers and the employers’ financial performance,” said Business Insurance Publisher Peter Oxner.
Best Places to Work in Insurance is an annual feature presented by Business Insurance and Best Companies Group that lists the agents, brokers, insurance companies and other providers with the highest levels of employee engagement and satisfaction.
Best Companies Group identifies the leading employers in the insurance industry by conducting a free two-part assessment of each company. The first part is a questionnaire completed by the employer about company policies, practices and demographics. The second part is a confidential employee survey on engagement and satisfaction.
