“We love that Namely is a tool for everyone, not just HR. It’s especially helpful for new employees to learn, not only someone’s name by seeing their photo, but also a little about them, the office location they work from, the role they play and the team they are on. It’s a very useful tool for those with offices across state lines to connect socially on the home page.” – Trish Swope, Director of HR, Archer Malmo
“I can’t emphasize enough that the partnership I’ve felt with the Namely team is why I want to stay with this product.” – Lauren Della Morte, People Operations Manager, Bevi
“I love how intuitive Namely is – especially because we conduct audits throughout the year. If we wanted to pull data for these audits and create reports in the past, it would take upwards of a week of work just to obtain that data and put it into an excel spreadsheet. With Namely, we’re able to pull that data and create all the reports we need within a day.” – Adrian Gajda, People Manager, Vita Coco
Namely CEO Larry Dunivan commented, “When we know our clients, we can solve their problems more quickly or even prevent them before they happen. We spent the last year looking at what’s needed now and how Namely can help. We will continue to do this, adding features that make HR easier for small- and mid-sized businesses, even during challenging, or otherwise uncertain times.”
“I’ve worked at a few companies and never came across a place with such an amazing, progressive culture. Namely encourages everyone to speak their mind and have conversations that lead to growth, not just for their careers, but for social change as well. Namely has given me an opportunity to become a leader in the DEI space by creating an ERG that focuses on people who identify as women. These grassroots organizations were started by employees, are run by employees, and are for the employees.” – Erin Rittweger, Associate Product Manager
“Overall, Namely is one of the best companies I’ve worked for. The culture is unlike anything I’ve experienced before. It is such an open minded and conscious culture that encourages employees to care about each other.” – Matt Zambrio, Director of People
“I go into every meeting, call, and discussion with the confidence that I can be myself and my voice will be heard.” -Aaron Masanque, Manager of Professional Services
