Already an established position within many major organizations today, Mazor believes the role of chief human resources officer is evolving from one of compliance to core leadership as competition for talent intensifies.

“That means being at the table, and being more of a strategist and catalyst, and less of two other important faces of leadership, which are operator and steward,” he said. “There is a demand for high-performing talent in a world where knowledge and innovation are the real keys for most enterprises today.
