Susanna Zagar

Chief Strategy and Analytics Officer

Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB)

As the Chief Strategy and Analytics Officer, Susanna Zagar has a broad mandate to drive change, sharpen organizational focus and ensure transparency of results. Analytics is at the heart of that mandate, and it allows Susanna to leverage her business expertise by advancing an “analytics everywhere” approach to transforming culture. Through the creation of a Center of Excellence for Information and Analytics, Susanna has enabled decision support through business intelligence, statistical modelling, advanced analytics, visualization, and open data.

The Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB) is here to help make Ontario one of the healthiest and safest places to work. It is one of the largest insurance organizations in North America, funded exclusively through employer premiums and covering over five million people in more than 300,000 workplaces across the Province of Ontario.

Health and Safety have been a primary focus of Susanna’s life for more than two decades. She is a former federal Governor of the Canadian Council of Occupational Health & Safety and is currently a provincial appointee to Ontario’s Prevention Council. In addition to representing Canada at the International Labour Organization (ILO) in Geneva, Susanna has held an ongoing role as a Judge for Canada’s Safest Employer Awards and is a sought after speaker on the topics of governance, enterprise strategy and execution.
