Our Multiyear Platinum Sponsorship with Namely - HR Open Source

Earlier this year we introduced a sponsorship funding model to help cover operating costs and scale the growing HROS community of over 4,000 members in 60+ countries.

We were excited to open our inaugural sponsorship year with 5 sponsors who share our vision for a more empowered, collaborative, and progressive field of HR. Today, we’re thrilled to announce a new sponsor.

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve entered into a three-year partnership with Namely that will carry through 2019. Namely is the leading HR, payroll, and benefits platform for midsized companies. Namely serves over 800 companies, representing over 125,000 employees globally. “As we began discussing this partnership and learning more about our respective communities, it was clear Namely shared our vision for a more empowered and inspired field of HR,” HROS Co-Founder Lars Schmidt stated about the partnership.

This partnership represents three exciting firsts for HROS:

  • First Platinum sponsor
  • First multi-year sponsor
  • First HR-focused sponsor

"When we learned about HROS, we saw a natural partnership," says Nick Christman, VP of Marketing at Namely. "Many of our clients have developed strategic HR practices, and it's incredibly powerful when they share their stories with the Namely community. In partnering with HROS, we can share these ideas more broadly and learn from many more exciting HR professionals, too. The more openly we share, the faster we all innovate in HR."

“Having been a customer of Namely for the past two years at my organization Duo, I had first-hand knowledge of their commitment to being customer and people centric.” added HROS Co-Founder Ambrosia Vertesi. “They are focused on bringing progressive tools and practices to HR and aligning with organizations who live that is a huge value for our community. We’re looking forward to the adventure.”
