Can your HR platform handle 50 employees? 100? 1000?

Namely is the perfect HR Platform for small- and mid-sized companies – ranging from a few employees to up to a thousand – and it is used in just about every industry and every state nationwide. We love small- and mid-sized companies because you’re mission-driven, client-obsessed, and you care deeply about your employees. Just like us. So whether you’re a one-person HR team in need of a helping hand (hello, Enhanced Services) or a larger team looking for a platform everyone loves (from your benefits specialist to your CFO), we’ve got you covered.

Will my employees log into Namely?

Most do! Seventy-eight percent of employees log into Namely at least once per month. Namely shares its look and feel with the popular social networks your employees already use, so they can get started right away. And because employees can request PTO, appreciate peers, review their pay-stubs, and more, they spend just as much time on Namely as they do on Twitter or LinkedIn. It’s a dream come true for those who never thought they’d hear “self-serve” and “HR” in the same sentence.


Will I really save time?

Yes, about 11 hours per week – if you are like our average client. That’s the power of full-service HR. We give you back the hours you used to spend keeping payroll, benefits, and everything else in sync – not to mention maintaining compliance to changing federal and state employment laws. Plus, Namely allows employees to answer their own HR questions before they even think to ask you, and it gives your leadership team direct access to the data they need. With Namely, HR stops being the complaint department. You get to focus on strategy, culture, and all the other important things you’ve been meaning to tackle.

Whether you need to plug in your ATS, LMS, ERP, or a system with more than three letters, there’s a good chance we have integration.

How can I convince my boss?

We have a few suggestions. You could discuss how with Namely in place you will finally have the time and the data you need to drive the strategic initiatives your boss really cares about.

Is she worried about remaining compliant with the ever-changing federal and state employment laws? You could share how Namely’s Compliance Library and enhanced Compliance Plus package can ensure that your business is supported by the technology and expert advice required to achieve and maintain compliance. Is she a big-picture thinker? Seventy-seven percent of clients say Namely has helped their organization grow.
