Building personal and trusting relationships with our employees, clients and members of our community is the very reason we exist. We are a family-owned business, and as such, we treat you like family. And that means having your back, no matter what.
We understand the value of hard work. It produces character in ourselves, excellence in our products and peace of mind for those who depend on our services. Passion for the work opens doors to achievement, collaboration and fulfillment. It’s why our employees come to work each day–not because they have to, but because they want to.
We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards by conducting our business with honesty, transparency and consistency in communications, behaviors and relationships. Being honest with ourselves and others builds trust. It allows people the assurance to work with us and strengthens our relationships, which are key to our success and the success of our clients.
We embrace each individual’s unique talents and honor diverse backgrounds, experiences, work styles and approaches to ideas. In other words, we treat people the way we‘d like to be treated, showing them respect and earning it back along the way.
Putting yourself in someone else’s shoes promotes a positive, optimistic and productive environment. It lets people know that you understand them and the challenges they face. Walking together allows you to walk further.
“What I like best about the way Hylant conducts business is that I have only two main points of contact–Steve and Laura. And they are topnotch. Their focus is primarily on healthcare clients, so they don’t just know the insurance industry, they know my industry as well. That’s a huge asset to me. And when I have a more specialized need, they will reach out within Hylant’s own organization so I don’t have to deal with seven different brokers. They’re just down-to-earth people. I never feel like I’m in a client/vendor relationship. We’re part of the same team.”
Greg LaMastus Global Risk Manager Owens Corning
“Hylant does an excellent job of tailoring the insurance policies to the needs of the company. Every company is different. And certainly, with the complexities that come with our size and our international breadth, we require special attention. There is no one-size-fits-all that would apply to our company, and Hylant has effectively tackled that issue for us. I know anytime, day and night, that Hylant is there for us, and they’re going to do their best for Owens Corning.”
April Brooks Human Resources Director Edward Hotel & Convention Center
“I trust my Hylant experts wholeheartedly. When it comes to benefits, Denise is great. As a former HR leader, I feel she really understands the difficult things that I have to deal with on a consistent basis when it comes to benefits administration. Jessica ensured that our plans were economical and provided plenty of options when it came to care. We have one of the best plans offered in the state of Michigan! And as a result, our employees are very happy and satisfied.”

“Any successful organization depends on a network of supporters and suppliers; customers and caring members of the community. Over the last decade and a half, Hylant has played all of those roles for us in a high-quality, high-integrity way. They've consistently given us solid advice and been actively and effectively engaged with our insurance work. But they've also been loyal customers, good friends and informal supporters throughout that whole time. We highly recommend Hylant to any community-minded business person!”
