Leadership Lessons With UCLA Gymnastics Legend ‘Miss Val’

As many HR professionals know, our careers don’t always play out the way you’d expect them to. If you asked a young Valorie Kondos Field or “Miss Val,” if she would go on to become the award-winning head coach of UCLA gymnastics, odds are she would have never believed it. This year, Miss Val stepped down after 30 years of being UCLA’s head coach—but left behind a legacy that will last long after her departure. Under her guidance, UCLA’s women’s gymnastics team won seven NCAA Championships as well as 29 Pac-12 and NCAA regional titles.

Announcing Namely’s Integration With Zapier

We've all heard that we live in an interconnected world—but more often than not, the technologies we rely on are anything but. Moving information between one application to another often involves manual work, taking up hours of your time and creating plenty of opportunity for human error. 

What if you could easily eliminate that problem, sans engineering degree? From our all-in-one HR, payroll, and benefits software to our timesaving workflows, Namely has always been a big believer in the power of automation. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our new integration with Zapier, the tool that connects the applications you use every day.
