Attune Insurance: Offering a Fresh Take on an Age-Old Industry

People Operations Lead, Katherine Klui, on the Collaborative Culture at Attune

The insurance industry is booming. Not only does it employ 115 times as many people as Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter and Yahoo combined, but there are a plethora of emerging startups taking advantage of the idea that "the insurance industry is in need of a makeover" - and the makeover starts with technology.


That's where our partner, Attune Insurance comes in. Named one of Crain's Best Places to Work in NYC, Attune Insurance is an emerging startup that's taking the industry by storm with their revolutionary take on an age-old service. Their team is utilizing advanced technologies and data science to reinvent how small business owners get the insurance they need, hassle-free.

We recently got the chance to chat with Katherine Klui, People Ops Lead at Attune, who shared more about the collaborative culture (and the people) pushing the company forward.

"Everyone here is incredibly smart and passionate about their roles. The company fosters a culture of belonging and collaboration, so there is a lot of shared knowledge and cross-functional projects; it really helps you to develop important skills and gain exposure to areas you otherwise wouldn't have any access to."

This emphasis on belonging and collaboration extends to the company's diversity and inclusion efforts. As Katherine explained, "We are very intentional with developing a culture of inclusivity, and our approach is completely driven and supported by leadership. Our differences are essential to the success of the company. Everyone on the team, regardless of seniority, is encouraged to share their perspectives and opinions. Our culture of belonging is the backbone to our business."

Given the importance of teamwork at Attune Insurance, Katherine says they prioritize drive to learn, leadership potential, and problem-solving ability in new team members. They assess these traits throughout the interview process, which begins with a phone screen that "dives deep into Attune and what we're doing, while also testing the necessary competencies of the role." If a candidate successfully completes the phone screen, they'll be invited for a set of onsite interview with key members of the team, after which, a decision is made.

So what can you do to make sure you make it past the phone screen? "Come prepared with specific examples of your successes at previous roles. And practice interviewing. It's a very different skill-set, so the more comfortable you are, the more likely you'll have a clear mind to answer questions well."

Interviewing is always a bit intimidating, but take heart in the fact that at Attune, you're being evaluated for you. "In the past, we've had very engaging conversations with candidates that didn't necessarily fit an existing open position- but we knew they would be a valuable addition to our team. We have hired several people this way, and we anticipate it will happen again!"

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

LGBTQIA+ Inclusion In The Workplace

As we celebrate Pride this month, we should also take time to reflect about the practices— or lack thereof— at our companies that help to support and empower members of the LGBTQIA+ community all year round. (LGBTQIA+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual. There are other variants of this acronym such as LGBT, LGBTQ, and LGBTQQIP2SAA, which all refer to the same community.)

From the Stonewall Uprising to the United States' Equality Act, we've come a long way, but the staggering statistics around the LGBTQIA+ community in the workplace tell us that there is still work to be done.
