VP, Human Resources
Jessie Morrison joined Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) with more than 30 years of experience in human resources in the for-profit sector to satisfy her "deep desire" to work for an organization seeking to change the world.
She weighs in on the human-resource implications of all major organizational decisions affecting employees. She leads and implements progressive human resources strategies, including organizational design and effectiveness, diversity, workforce planning, talent acquisition and development, employee and labour relations, compensation and workforce management.
In her travels to Central and South America, Africa and Asia, Jessie has witnessed the struggles of vulnerable children and families seeking to become self-reliant. After visiting her sponsored child in Burkina Faso, she was pleased to see how the family thrived after a modest gift of two pigs. Jessie’s philanthropy extended to supporting the building of a library and materials for schools in Paraguay and Ethiopia and using technology to improve vegetable production in Burkina Faso and India.
Prior to joining CCFC, Jessie served in human resources at Bank of Montreal, Enbridge and Consumers Gas. She has an extensive background in project management, change management strategies as well as employee relations and recruitment and is an advocate of embedding human resources in the organization as a thought partner for strategic change.
Jessie holds a Bachelor degree in Religious Education from the Ontario Bible College and is a Certified Human Resources Professional.
The VP has been involved in numerous community volunteer activities.
