A Question of Style: Research Project Overview
This research project explored employer bias regarding Veteran working style, motivators and competencies. Sponsored by the Canadian Armed Forces and supported by Veteran Affairs Canada, the project involved administering psychometric assessments to currently serving members and Veterans. Employers also completed assessments where they were asked to answer as if they were a Veteran, capturing unconscious bias. We would like to thank and acknowledge the significant contribution of Target Training International (TTI) who supported this project.
This study remains open and data collected since September 2017 will be analysed in July 2018 to generate updated findings.

Project Findings and Tools
The results identified several key learnings for career professionals, recruiters and hiring managers. With CERIC's support, we have created a self-assessment for career practioners & employers to test understanding of Veterans as a hidden talent pool. To take the assessment CLICK HERE
