Humphrey is the global vice president of talent at Hootsuite, the world’s most widely used social relationship platform. Since 2011, she has spearheaded the company’s hypergrowth, bringing its headcount from 20 to more than 700 in under four years, with 95% employee retention. In 2015, she will continue to scale the organization to more than 1,100 employees in 12 countries globally.
Committed to fostering innovation in HR, Humphrey’s work on building an employee-centric culture and social HR practices at Hootsuite has contributed to various citations, including a nomination for YWCA’s Women of Distinction and several awards for the company, including Canadian Tech’s Employer of the Year in 2013.
In her role, Humphrey has built a top talent organization by incorporating emerging technologies – including social media – into traditional HR operations and processes. She now stands in the sweet spot where tech and talent converge.
