What We Do

Limelight Health helps empower insurance carriers to solve one of the most fundamental challenges in the employee benefits space; providing the right coverage to the right people, at the right price, and at the right time.

What We Believe

We believe that the only way to achieve this lofty goal is to find and work with brilliant, compassionate individuals who are inspired by our company's vision.

What We Envision

To us, vision isn't a one-liner painted on the wall, but rather a three page document that helps drive every decision our team makes as we work towards a shared picture of what our company will be in December 2022. It's a clear definition of success at a specific point in time - and it's our internal compass.

One of the three sections in our vision is dedicated to the culture we're intentionally building. Part of it reads:

"We have also gained a reputation as one of the best places to work in the U.S. Limelight is primarily a remote company by design, with a physical presence in strategic locations. These workspaces share a consistent Limelight look and feel, and provide employees nearby or traveling through with the option for in-person collaboration. But regardless of where they're working on a given day, our team members feel like they have the resources they need to be their most effective.

Across the board, our employees have a deep understanding of our market, solutions, customers and users. New hires often tell us that our onboarding was the best they've experienced, but the industry context we provide doesn't stop there. We are consistently growing our knowledge through continuing education. We also invest in our employees' potential through professional and leadership development. Whether it's connecting someone with an incredible mentor or supporting their transition into management, we strive to set team members up for success in their roles. Employees have a clear path to growth and many of them want to take the next step of their career within Limelight. High retention has helped us build expertise and capacity throughout the company, and there is a strong sense of ownership in each department.

Not only do we retain strong contributors, we attract them. Our continuous recruiting process keeps our pipeline full of high caliber candidates who are drawn to our innovative approach. Working at Limelight is not for everyone; it's for people who can get on board with fellow "A" players, and develop their talents to the fullest as we navigate the fast-moving rapids of a changing industry. Limelight is for people who embrace the challenge of solving hard problems to build something great. Everyone takes responsibility for communicating their needs, and we respect and support each other's boundaries. Managers work with their directs to reconcile short term needs with long term sustainability. Employees at Limelight give their all, and they truly feel appreciated for it. They know that at the end of the day we care about each other as people, and whatever we're facing, we're not doing it alone."
