Canopy Children’s Solutions (Canopy) welcomes Jynger N. Morris, SHRM-CP, as its new Director of Human Resources. Morris brings more than 12 years of experience in human resource management and employee benefits to Canopy. In her role, Morris will oversee aspects of the employee experience (recruiting, onboarding, retention, etc.), as well as employee relations, work force development, employee performance and benefits.
“I believe the role of human resources is to serve employees to the best of our ability so they can best serve our clients,” said Morris. “You have to have a heart for service and want to ‘love on’ people so they get the best out of their working experience. We need to ask the hard questions and continually evaluate how we can better serve our team.”
Prior to joining Canopy, Morris was the Human Resources Manager at Horne, LLP and helped to manage benefits, employee experience, compliance and employee relations for a staff of over 500 spread throughout the Southeast and Mid-Western United States. Morris also spent time at the University of Mississippi Medical Center heading up employee benefits for one of the state’s largest employers.
Morris attended Millsaps College before relocating to North Carolina. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from Appalachian State University and later earned master’s degrees in Human Relations and International Relations from the University of Oklahoma.
Morris is a native of Rankin County but has spent time living in a variety of locations throughout her life and is the youngest of six children. She is highly involved in her children’s activities and in the educational community for Madison Station Elementary. She and her husband, Isaac, currently reside in Madison, Mississippi, and are the proud parents to four children.
