Prior to joining Sierra-Cedar, Harris held executive level research roles with research organizations Bersin & Associates and Brandon Hall Group. She has launched multiple HR, Talent, Management and Learning research practices and personally led key research initiatives in strategic HR, talent strategy, organization and governance, measurement, and total rewards.

In July of 2017, Stacey was appointed to The International Association for Human Resource Information Management (IHRIM) Board of Directors. As Director of IHRIM’s Education Initiatives, her first priority is crafting a new approach to education for IHRIM members—one that engages our community and promotes significant member benefits. “I believe professional associations like IHRIM will help us develop the skills needed to bridge the gap between current and future HR technology environments, and are integral to developing the next generation of HR Technology leaders. I’m looking forward to helping our community grow.”
