TOLEDO, Ohio Nov. 13, 2017 – For the ninth consecutive year, Hylant, one of the nation’s largest family-owned, privately held insurance brokerage firms, was named one of the Best Places to Work in Insurance by Business Insurance magazine. Hylant ranked third in the medium employer category, moving up from fourth last year.
The Best Places to Work program evaluates feedback from employees and recognizes employers for outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work and help their company grow.
Hylant recognizes that each employee brings his or her own unique experiences, perspectives and work style to the organization and believes that embracing each person’s unique talents opens doors to achievement, collaboration and career fulfillment.
“This recognition from our employees validates that we have built a culture where our people feel empowered and rewarded,” said Mike Hylant, CEO. “We are honored to once again be recognized for the family environment we have worked together to create.”
Bill Pridgeon, CPA, President, said it is the atmosphere of community that sets Hylant apart.
“Our employees and clients are our family, and we are committed to developing strong personal relationships throughout the organization,” he said. “This collaborative setting helps to attract best-in-class professionals to Hylant and is the foundation of superior client service.”
Business Insurance identifies the leading employers in the insurance industry by conducting a two-part assessment of each company. The evaluation includes a review of the company’s policies, practices and demographics and a confidential employee survey regarding career support and satisfaction.
“Being named a Best Place to Work in Insurance demonstrates that Hylant has built a culture in which employees are supported and engaged, which benefits Hylant’s customers and financial performance,” said Peter Oxner, Publisher.
The ranking and profiles of the winning companies will be unveiled as a sponsored content supplement in the November issue of Business Insurance and online at BusinessInsurance.com.
