A new HR association has sprung up and while it’s based in Toronto, it’s determined to take a global view. Called Human Resource Leaders (HRL), the group is focusing on business leaders, not just those in HR, and hoping to attract members worldwide.

“Other organizations in human resources have silos, they have silos in each province, they have silos in their focus. We are without borders — we are HR without borders,” said Yvonne Blaszczyk, president and chair of HRL.

Launched about one year ago, the association is focusing its efforts on membership, which currently sits at about 1,000, and planning its first major conference for February 2013.
