Chief Human Resources Officer

Jill Morrison

As Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO), I enjoy the privilege of overseeing the strategy for the people and culture initiatives at Paylocity. Our HR teams work with leaders across the organization to translate business requirements into an executable talent strategy that supports long-term employee growth and development.

I joined Paylocity in 2022, bringing more than 20 years of dedicated and progressive HR experience. I’m especially looking forward to leveraging my many years as a change agent and leader in high-tech companies experiencing tremendous growth and transformation. As an HCM company that puts people first, Paylocity is the perfect place for me to exercise my passion for HR’s unique role in enabling the success of individuals and the business as a whole.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and started my HR career in automotive advertising in Detroit. After six wonderful years working abroad in London, I returned to the States and continued in the technology industry in the Northern Virginia area. Most recently, I spent more than seven years in the dynamic higher education tech space, leading several areas of HR at Ellucian and supporting the business through significant private equity transactions and acquisitions. Outside the office, you can find me with my family on one of the many trails, rivers, or lakes in Northern Virginia, or planning our next big travel adventure.

“I feel so fortunate to contribute to the impressive growth and continued success of Paylocity. It’s clear from our culture, decisions, and everyday actions that people are the heart of how the business moves forward together — with both our employees and our clients.”
