Challenge Factory initiates its own research and works with industry and academic partners to explore all aspects of the Future of Work. Here is/are the studies we are currently conducting. Let us know if you are looking for a collaborative industry partner for your research initiative.

A Question of Style - How does working and communication style impact Veteran hiring in Canada?

This research will produce one of the first quantitative studies of Veteran career transition and help us understand how communication style may be affecting how military candidates are hired for civilian positions. The project includes multiple partners providing funding, research or dissemination support: Target Training International (TTI), CERIC, Canadian Armed Forces (CAF – Department of Casualty Support Management), Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC), Canadian Special Operations Regiment Association, Treble Victor and Prince’s Operation Entrepreneur.

This study involves currently serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans and employers. Participants will complete a formal assessment that will provide data to support quantifiable findings related to military working style, communication style and employer perceptions of military candidates. To participate in this study or for more information, please email our research team.
