According to the Kaiser Family Foundation’s 2017 Employer Health Benefits Survey, the average family premium has risen by 55 percent since 2007, and deductible costs have skyrocketed even faster—increasing over 144 percent over the same time period.

Namely’s mission is to help mid-sized companies build a better workplace. Since we started publishing content in 2013, our blog’s aim has been to empower readers do just that.
Five years and nearly one thousand articles later, that mission remains the same. But as our content library and readership grows, the way we share information has to evolve. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the next stage of our publication’s journey.
We’re pleased to share that Namely was ranked as one of the nation’s top cloud computing companies on Forbes 2018 Cloud 100 list. This marks Namely’s third time on the list, placing every year since the list’s conception in 2016.
We are proud to announce that JMP Securities, a premier San Francisco-based investment bank, has included Namely in their “Hot 100” list of the best privately held software companies for the second year in a row.
The past year has been full of important milestones. Earlier today, Namely announced the appointment of our CEO, Elisa Steele, as well as $60 million in additional funding to help our clients build a better workplace.
We’re excited to announce that Elisa Steele has been appointed Namely’s CEO. She’s a seasoned tech executive, Namely Board Member, and brings over 25 years of leadership experience to the table. Elisa has held the position of Head of the Office of the CEO since May, previously was the CEO of Jive Software, and has held senior leadership roles at Microsoft, Yahoo!, Skype, and Sun Microsystems, among others.
Namely’s mission is to help mid-sized companies build better workplaces. In other words, we want to change how the world works. To realize a goal that audacious, it takes the right mix of leadership and resources.
