What We Stand For
We are proud to say we've been named a “Best Places to Work in Insurance” company for 14 consecutive years. That is largely due to the promise made by Edward P. Hylant when founding the company in 1935, to treat clients and employees like family- with honesty, respect and trust. Those same values guide how we think, work and act with our clients, within our communities and with each other. By putting these ideals into practice every day, we uphold our company’s commitment to help people live safer, more secure lives.
Hylant Brand Values
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 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 critical 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 how 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 us to walk further.

If we aren’t covered the way we need to be, I could lose my business; 300 people would lose their jobs. I feel that Hylant is always looking out for me.
