Forbes Names Mylo to America’s Best Startup Employers 2021

Insurtech leader Mylo has been recognized as one of America’s Best Startup Employers 2021 by Forbes, the largest business media brand in the world. Focused on entrepreneurial achievement and industry transformation, Forbes created this list to honor fast-growing U.S. companies that were launched between 2011 and 2018 and have emerged as exemplary employers. Digital agency Mylo placed #5 in the Finance category, #28 overall and #1 in Missouri out of 500 innovative startups.
Since launching in 2015, Mylo has grown to 130 employees and combines an innovative startup culture with the backing of the world’s largest independent insurance broker Lockton and global investor Guggenheim Partners. The Kansas City-based company offers a proprietary technology platform that taps into 50+ years of insurance expertise to deliver expert coverage advice and solutions from leading carriers to small business owners and individuals.
Forbes selected Mylo in an initial grouping of 10,000 eligible employers which they narrowed down to the top 2,500 for rigorous analysis. In this round, companies were evaluated on 7 million data points tied to three key factors: reputation as an employer (measured by positive social media mentions and engagement), employee satisfaction (measured by online employee reviews and average length of employment) and growth (measured by headcount, website traffic and job opening increases). Across every metric, Mylo excelled as an employer of choice.
For many job seekers, Mylo’s differentiator is the combination of a fast-paced startup environment and the stability that comes from the backing of proven investors. Team members unite behind a mission of unleashing technology to deliver ideal insurance solutions for people who are starting businesses, buying homes or looking out for their loved ones – whether they shop online or with a licensed advisor.
In pursuit of game-changing talent, Mylo offers employees competitive compensation and outstanding benefits, wellness programs for every dimension of health, a proactive focus on diversity and inclusion and ongoing opportunities to share feedback. Associates are hired and retained not only for their qualifications but also their fit with seven core “cultural values” that align the Mylo team around a dynamic, collaborative, problem-solving culture. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Mylo has continued to grow and prosper with an exclusively remote workforce.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by Forbes as a Best Startup Employer,” said Mylo CEO David Embry. “This exciting honor will accelerate our mission to bring the most talented and innovative people to Mylo as we scale our company and revolutionize insurance.”
