Today's Workplace Is Mobile-First. Why Shouldn't HR Be?

From shopping for groceries to hailing a cab, there isn’t much that we don’t do on our phones. We’ve gotten used to having the world in our pockets. Well, for the most part.

Let’s face it: Between cumbersome onboarding forms, tear-off paystubs, and outdated software, human resources sometimes feels like it’s stuck in the nineties. But we know how exciting and progressive HR is when it’s paired with modern technology. And when it comes to staying relevant in today’s landscape, you need to meet employees where they are: on their phones.

Namely Ranked No. 1 HR Software by Newsweek

The race to attract and retain talent has never been fiercer—and we’re passionate about building software that empowers companies to stand out from the competition. So when we heard that Namely was ranked as the top HR software provider in Newsweek’s Best Business Tools 2019, we took the result to heart.

Newsweek’s findings are based on a nationwide survey of more than 10,000 users of software and software service providers. Survey participants were asked about their willingness to recommend the software and to rate the provider in categories of trust, service promise, reliability, security, improvement, and satisfaction.

The survey identified Namely as the top HR software with a total score of 83.4. Namely led the category with the only ranking above 80 on the list. Below are some of the other vendors included in this year's survey. For a full listing of results, click here

Meet Namely: Brett Berman

When Brett Berman first joined Namely in 2014 as a software engineer, the company only had 15 employees. At the time, he had no idea Namely would grow to become the company it is today. Five years later, Brett is now an engineering director and Namely has over 500 employees. When Brett isn’t helping his team enhance the product, he loves roasting his own coffee and training for marathons.

Announcing Namely’s Integration With Zapier

What if you could easily eliminate that problem, sans engineering degree? 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.

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.

We’re excited to host an all-star lineup of motivational speakers, thought leaders, and industry experts at HR Redefined 2019. With the conference just a few short weeks away, we wanted to highlight some of the talented speakers you’ll soon see on the HRR stage.

Here’s how Mai got her start in HR—and her recommendation on what to do if you're visiting New York City for the conference.
