Evolution of people-driven HR drives rapid growth spanning every industry
At its third-annual HR Redefined conference, Namely, a leading HR platform for mid-sized companies, announced it reached more than 1,300 companies now running their people operations on the Namely platform. These organizations employ approximately 250,000 people in 134 countries and all 50 U.S. states and seven territories.
Namely’s client base now includes a broad range of fast-growing businesses in nearly every industry, including companies like ActiveCampaign, Acorns, Drift, EatStreet, Life is Good, Mizzen + Main, OneLogin, Peerfit, SiriusDecisions, and The Motley Fool, as well as Namely partners such as Jobvite, JazzHR, and Greenhouse. Together, these mid-sized organizations use Namely to manage billions of dollars in payroll, with growth of 300 percent since the first HR Redefined conference in 2017.
“We’re honored to serve this community of forward-thinking people professionals who understand the critical link between talent dynamics and business success,” said Graham Younger, president and chief revenue officer, Namely. “The accelerating pace of growth in our client base is a testament to the value that these companies place on empowering their people and nurturing their culture.”

Namely reduces the administrative burden on HR professionals and frees them up to focus on deepening employee engagement and fostering meaningful experiences. Clients consistently recognize the value this delivers to their business across several dimensions:
- “This is our sixth year with Namely and we are happy for their partnership. Namely’s platform is wonderfully flexible and handles most of our HR needs and functions,” said Trish Swope, director of human resources at Archer Malmo in Tennessee.
- “Namely makes my life so much easier. Not only are the tools, like payroll and benefits, easy and intuitive, but the customer service is outstanding. The people at Namely are friendly, knowledgeable, and always available to help,” said Titus Yao, director of human resources and administration at Academic Travel Abroad in Washington, D.C.
- “Namely is an HR platform that understands the need for other products to integrate effectively. The fact that Namely offers easy connections with other HR and payroll tools makes it a superpower in the industry,” said Chantelle Dembowski, senior director of HR at ThreatQuotient in Virginia.
- “Line up all your people system pain points and Namely mows them down, like a boss,” said Colleen Clark, head of optimistic people at Life is Good in Massachusetts.
The two-day HR Redefined event at Spring Studios in New York City brings together more than 500 global HR professionals who share a common mission: building better workplaces. Thirty leaders, many from Namely clients such as BounceX, Capital III, EatStreet, LRN, Suzy, TechnologyAdvice, and The Channel Company, will share their expertise with attendees about how to engage employees to drive retention; analyze people data to increase the impact of HR overall; and evolve their HR strategies to stay ahead of the curve.
