Chris Havrilla leads the HR technology and solution provider strategy and research practice for Deloitte—helping to demystify the ever-changing HR Tech landscape for their corporate and solution provider members. She has worked diligently through her career with business and HR leaders—both as an internal HR & HR technology/strategy practitioner or as a consultant/adviser—on radically improving talent strategy, technology, and leadership—as well as the vendors who serve them. With a unique blend of technical, HR practitioner, business and vendor experience, she laughingly describes herself as a bit of a talent, HR Tech and Future of Work “whisperer”. In 2019, Chris was selected by Human Resource Executive® and the HR Technology Conference to be included in the inaugural Top 100 HR Tech Influencers list, which recognizes individuals from the HR, technology, and business communities who are impacting the future direction of HR technology.
