The Fourth of July is a summer favorite for employees across America.

While most offices are closed in observance of the holiday, this year’s schedule is a little atypical—July Fourth lands on a Thursday.
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.

From our 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.

Stephen originally thought he wanted to be an actuarial scientist before an internship helped him realize the field wasn’t for him. When a sales position opened up that let him fulfill his dream of living in New York, Stephen jumped at the opportunity and hasn’t looked back.
