Namely’s workplace culture also received high marks from Comparably, having won 12 awards in 2021.

Amy Roy, Chief People Officer at Namely, said, “Fueled by collaboration, transparency, and inspiration, Larry encourages our employees to bring their authentic selves to work and share their unique perspectives and talents.

The impact of his guidance is pervasive throughout Namely.”

Dunivan commented, “2021 was another year of uncertainty. Even when the path forward has not been clear, our employees consistently demonstrated their caring for each other and for our customers.
