Vita Coco Streamlines HR and Keeps Compliant With Namely

Vita Coco is the leading coconut water beverage brand, celebrated for bringing the benefits of coconuts to the world. While it’s headquartered in New York City, it also has global offices in London, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Before implementing Namely, Vita Coco was searching for a streamlined, centralized HR solution.

Before implementing Namely, Adrian Gajda, Vita Coco's People Manager, was searching for a streamlined HR solution.


“Some of the challenges that we faced in past HR systems dealt with the lack of interactivity between key HR features, such as time off, attendance, performance reviews, and even some of our benefits, like 401k, health, and dental plans. We never had a one-stop-shop to access all of those important features that employees rely on.”

Since a huge part of Adrian’s day-to-day involves running reports, he found it cumbersome and time-consuming to gather employee and company data across multiple, disparate HR solutions.

“A key part of my job is creating stories about our employee data. HR systems are full of employee data, and we use that data every day to make decisions around turnover, attrition, and other important metrics. Old, antiquated HR systems don’t have the ability to run reports and give us that data in a way that would benefit our company.”

From its intuitive interface to its seamless reporting features, Namely’s platform has simplified Adrian’s day-to-day—and his employees’ experience, too.

In addition, Namely helped Adrian and his team to amplify their compliance efforts. When it comes to staying compliant, Adrian doesn’t have to worry about missing deadlines or violating regulations with Namely’s compliance solution, Comply Advice & Action. In particular, Adrian has valued Comply Advice & Action during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“COVID-19 came at us quickly, but Comply Advice & Action has helped us stay up to date with federal, state, and local guidelines. The solution has also helped us understand the legal lingo involved in the legislation that’s been passed by Congress.”

Overall, Namely’s Comply Advice & Action has helped Adrian and his team keep up in the fight to stay compliant, while also saving them valuable time.

“Comply Advice & Action has saved us eight hours a week that we used to spend on research and interpretation work. If you find yourself constantly ‘googling’ around for compliance measures or frequently reaching out to legal departments in order to understand legislature, Comply Advice & Action will give you that time back.”

Considering Namely as your next HCM solution? Here’s what Adrian has to say:

“Namely provides all the resources you need to lay down the groundwork for your HR strategy. Your employees will thank you for not having to navigate between 3 to 4 different HR vendors. As an HR leader, it’s also important that you are well versed in compliance measures. Namely makes that easy by providing you with all the materials you need in one accessible location. The time that Namely has saved us is unprecedented.”

Vita Coco is one of more than 1,400 companies that use Namely to streamline people operations, payroll, benefits, and time & attendance needs.
