The Kismet Story

Our evolution from
a Trusted Legacy Brand

It was KISMET,
written in the
STARS
FATE, meant to be.

This company was always meant to exist, its essence and molecules have been swirling around us, waiting to formulate; a bit of time needed to pass…

…a few stars needed to align…then, it all came together, exactly as it was always meant to.

KISMET PEO was created…

…for entities that began with us as ‘clients,’ and will be continued to be shaped, refined and improved as our clients transform into ‘partners’…partners working to complement one another to create the greatest opportunity for success, growth and to realize the full potential of what started out as a dream, an idea.

We truly enable our partners to do what they do best while we take care of the details that can sometimes stifle growth, progress and profits.

Kismet PEO was brought to life through the needs and voices of the customers we have served over many years through our current powerful group of service-oriented companies…

…and here is how it all began.

Gilbert’s Insurance Agency, Inc.

Gilbert’s Insurance Agency, Inc. opened for business as a retail independent insurance agency in 1854, and has been guided by the voices of our customers from the very beginning.  After establishing a reputation of integrity and always doing right by our customers, we listened…and strengthened our offerings by focusing intensely on customer care and service, while continuing to keep our ears attuned as we continued to grow and evolve…

This evolution brought a fresh new identity at the dawn of the new millennium and our customers asked us for more…

“…can greater security and peace of mind be found beyond simply purchasing insurance?”

The answer we provided was Gilbert’s Risk Solutions, as it remains today, which blends strategic Risk Management Consulting with traditional insurance solutions to manage and lower the total cost of risk.

SOS Safety Solutions

However, our customers continued to talk and we continued to listen…

…and the next important question we wished to address was…

“our company is experiencing a very high frequency
and severity of Worker’s Compensation claims…can you help?”

We responded through the formulation of SOS Safety Solutions, delivering a solid team highly-experienced Safety Specialists on site monthly to work with our clients in the development and delivery of effective, custom safety management programs designed to reduce claims, insurance premiums with the primary focus being the delivery our clients’ workers home safely to their families each day.

Synergy Claims Management Company (SCMC)

Further listening provided us another unique way to serve our customers through efficient and thorough claims adjudication and management, by creating Synergy Claims Management Company where we were able to reduce customer claims costs by 61%, and these types of reductions and prudent management still exist today.

From there, our customers once again posed an interesting question…

“Could a unique Worker’s Compensation product exist that is available and priced to the mid-market?”

Not only could it exist, but it now does exist because we created Synergy Comp Insurance Company.

OUR DESTINY has continuously unfolded over the years

…through our responses to the voices and needs of our customers.

Late last year, we began offering Strategic Human Resources services to our client partners and the stars really began to align. We realized that with our foundations in Risk Management, Workers’ Compensation, Claims Administration, and Insurance, the next natural step was to position ourselves as a single-source provider of powerful products and services to help businesses lower their costs while reducing risk and liability.

We truly feel that fate called on us once again, which is why we created Kismet.
