Wilson Insight provides quality research, strategic insight, and actionable advice on emerging trends at the intersection of people, business, and technology. We imagine the future, seek to gain clarity on the disruptive forces enabling such a future, and provide a pragmatic approach to competing in the future.

We are advocates for HR leaders and practitioners. We work with our clients to understand and discover what practices are supporting achievement of their true goals, to provide practical advice on what systems and tools could enable a better outcome, and to champion, on their behalf, for new tools and systems that would further advance their goals.

We are strategic advisors to product strategy and development leaders at technology vendors. We provide a broad-based view of cutting edge technologies and practices. More importantly, we make investment recommendations based on what will be most useful in achieving customer goals, keeping in context the vendors own strength and position.
