Abstract

This chapter is an interview with Dr Wilson Wong. He is Head of Insight and Futures at the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) and Chair of the Human Capital Standards Committee at the British Standards Institution (BSI). Wilson shares with us his insights as to what the future could hold for human resource development (HRD) and organisations in a post-pandemic world. In the interview Wilson argues that technology has not lived up to its promise in our fight against Covid-19. He argues that the underlying problems are multi-faceted and therefore the solutions must be holistic. These solutions range from taking care of the environment and wildlife to addressing a potential cause of pandemics, developing government policies in preparing nations for unlikely but impactful events to organisational business models that mediate between new technologies and markets.
