Best of #MyloLife 2017 Photo Album

The pics say it all. 2017 was an amazing year for Mylo. As our company grew and evolved, our contagiously upbeat team celebrated more wins, worked through more challenges, and found more ways to lift up each other and our communities.

Check out Mylo life (and possibly be a part of it. Hint, hint) in 2017:

We had fun together.

Yard games, drinks and good conversations … all part of the job. We'll see who topples the Jenga tower next time!

We volunteered together.

Lockton’s Fifty for 50 campaign celebrated 50 years of “We Live Service!” by pledging to contribute 50,000 volunteer hours globally to children’s charities in 2017. Mylo associates donated our share … then kept going.

We donated together. (Pancakes help!)

Mylo’s 100 team members raised $10,000+ for United Way during our annual fundraiser week! We kicked off with a donation motivation pancake breakfast by Chris Cakes – and ended with a raffle featuring Chiefs and Sprint Center tickets, gift cards & surprise prizes.

We celebrated our achievements.

First we celebrated exceeding sales goals and growing quicker than we expected with a taco truck party by the always amazing Estrella Azul!

Then we partied with Melt Box’s super-premium ice cream to celebrate the sweet news that we broke our sales record and reached new milestones!

We rewarded top sales agents with prizes like a trip to Tick Tock Escape Games, where they made it out with time left on the clock. (Which demonstrates two of our core values: smart AND fun!)

And our insurance carrier partners rewarded us with free BBQ over and over again ... which, as you can tell, we never turn down.

We won awards.

We're excited to have top stars on our team! Chief Marketing Officer Monica Wilkens was recognized at the Techweek100 awards for Kansas City because Mylo is a Rising Startup among tech trailblazers and leaders.

Mylo’s own Holy Walkamolies team won the Lockton Fall Into Fitness Workout Challenge, racing to the top out of 103 teams total across all of Lockton’s global offices!

“I’m grateful to work at a company where wellness is a priority, where there is a community that encourages each other to stay healthy, and where every associate can earn rewards for taking care of themselves,” said Mindy Templeton of the Holy Walkamolies.

We networked and we learned.

We joined nearly 4000 tech entrepreneurs, insurance experts and investors who are embracing a culture of innovation and making life easier for customers at InsureTech Connect.

Mylo Contact Center reps learned about the latest technology that helps us help you more efficiently at the Call Center ICMI Demo Conference.

We celebrated our partnership with KC Chamber and met some of the region’s most inventive companies at their Small Business Celebration Showcase and Morning Schmoozes. (We also went rock climbing in our business suits. Highly recommended.)

Top Mylo leaders represented at Lockton’s national Women in Leadership Conference. Associates from across the country got together to learn about leadership and give back to the community.

We networked and we taught.

Mylo’s tech team met up with KC techies at KC Developer Conference ... assisted by plenty of candy and fidget spinners.

And where Geoff Vandegrift led “Software Without Managers,” a discussion of Holacracy, a revolutionary self-management system (modeled on computer programming) that’s helping us develop an even cooler workplace.

And we taught each other and grew our team.

We hired 68 new associates, doubling our workforce! Many of them earned their insurance licenses through our agent training program, a gratifying way to see Mylo’s investment in the future pay off right away.

We celebrated together.

Mylo kids came to work to Trunk or Treat with us! No tricks involved. (That we know of.)

And we ended the year with a holiday party complete with ugly sweaters, a Festivus pole, cookie contest, our favorite bartenders and only the finest in '80s holiday movies.

And that's why we're a "Best Place to Work!"

Together we're Mylo, an exciting new digital start-up founded by Lockton, the world’s largest independent insurance broker. We’re not just a bunch of people who geek out about insurance or tech, though! We’re all self-starters from various backgrounds who work hard and have fun transforming the ways people protect what they love.
