Turning Adversity into Opportunity

Dr. Wilson Wong, Head of insights and future of Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) performs horizon scanning to research, strategize, and outline what will shape the future of our society and workplace. He shares that COVID-19 is something we have rehearsed for decades. But instead of preparing for the inevitable, we chased a marginal cost advantage, sought efficiency over human capital, and lived in constant consumption mode. 

The Future of Work

A haven for digital natives, where innovation ignites, and society (as a whole) becomes your company’s most essential stakeholder. The future of work is flexible, inspiring, and limitless. But with each new possibility, comes challenges. Amidst all the bustle, human resources will serve as the vanguard to resolve these universal growing pains.


Inevitable: The Future of Work profiles leaders at the helm of today’s most revolutionary workplace movements. We demystify their processes, challenges, and solutions to empower listeners to stand at the cutting-edge, discover new skills, and become fearlessly agile.
