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.
There’s arguably nothing as influential in shaping HR’s role in the modern workplace as data. Data allows us to identify areas of opportunity, measure the impact of our initiatives, and plan for the future. But in order to use data effectively, you need access to clean, customizable reports you can pull whenever you need them.
With unemployment at record lows, today’s workplaces (and their HR teams) have never been busier. And where there's work to be done, there's a need for technology.
Over the last decade, hundreds of exciting companies serving all parts of the employee lifecycle, from recruiting to performance management, have emerged to help businesses and their people grow. All in all, HR software’s market share is expected to soar past $10 billion by 2022.
At Namely, we love helping mid-sized companies build better workplaces. That’s why we’re thrilled to be listed as an industry leader in HRWins’ new report, HR Software Market Landscape for Middle-Sized Businesses. Below are some highlights from the 2019 report.
Let’s be honest: The performance review has gotten a bad rap. Not only do employees dread the process, managers often feel the time can simply be better spent doing something else. Unfortunately, while the performance review process is intended to be helpful to everyone, several companies are simply doing away with them.
The world of human resources is changing. From artificial intelligence to human resources information systems, HR technology is not only revolutionizing the way HR professionals perform their day jobs, but also changing the very nature of that work. Only ten years ago, HR was known unaffectionately as “personnel management.” The department was tasked with mitigating legal risks, overseeing administrative tasks and employee inquiries, and maintaining the office’s ever-growing library of personnel files.
Hiring the right people and giving them a seamless onboarding experience is hard. From finding the best talent to gathering employee information, things can get hectic—especially if your talent acquisition software isn’t connected to your HR system of record.
We’ve partnered with Hire by Google, a recruiting app built for organizations using G Suite, to help companies accelerate the employee onboarding experience. Our new, real-time integration benefits multiple departments, including your HR, recruiting, and IT teams.
Starting today, shared Hire and Namely clients will be able to:

HR teams have a lot on their plates. That’s why it’s important to get the most out your HR technology and choose a human resources information system (HRIS) that can keep up with your growing company. While implementing an HRIS at your company is a great way to streamline administrative work, there is one tool in particular that can revolutionize how you prioritize your day: workflows. Workflows let employees update their own information, assigning approvers, and notifying anyone affected by the changes, so you can track progress and see changes implemented in real time.
From onboarding to exit interviews, HR has a hand in all aspects of the employee lifecycle. While it’s great to stay busy, it’s impossible for small HR teams to “do it all,” especially as your company grows and evolves. Between staying on top of new compliance requirements, handling employee inquiries, processing payroll, overseeing strategic initiatives, and more, HR teams need all the help they can get to keep the office running smoothly and meet business needs.
If safety is the best policy, IT security follows closely behind. Out of all the policies in your handbook, few are as critical. While security policies don’t get much fanfare when they work well, botching them can have dire consequences. Look no further than the latest high-profile data breach in the headlines for an example of what can go wrong.
Recruiting in this market is tough. If you’re like most businesses today, sustained record-low unemployment has made it hard to find, hire, and keep good people on board. Even in this so-called “candidate’s market,” finding a job is no walk in the park either. There isn’t one place with all of the job listings, and every news site, blog, or distant relative has tips on how to get your resume noticed.
Whether you’re looking to hire the best people or trying to land that dream job, I’m going to leverage my three decades in the HR technology space to bust a few myths that are as vexing for employers as they are for candidates.
