Hidden Talent Podcast

Hidden Talent: A Challenge Factory Podcast

Despite the fact that small- and medium-sized businesses make up more than half of the Canadian labour market, employing nearly ten million people across the country, most small business owners struggle to attract, hire, and retain the right talent.

But imagine a hidden talent pool of approximately 10,000 skilled, experienced, and educated people entering the workforce annually. That’s how many men and women transition out of Canadian military service and into civilian employment each year.

The Hidden Talent podcast showcases the voices of small business owners and military Veterans as they discuss their own employment struggles and successes, from both sides of the interview table. These short, bingeable episodes are designed for everyone looking for their next hire.


Available wherever you get your podcasts.

‘Wow’ is the best descriptive word. My brain is going into overdrive thinking about the untapped potential of the Canadian military Veterans who are re-entering or entering the civilian world.
