Call for Participants

Code for Canada, in collaboration with the Public Service Commission’s Personnel Psychology Centre, are looking employees in the federal government to participate in one-on-one interviews to discuss their job experience in the federal public service. This will take approximately 1 hour.

We are also looking to recruit public servants in managerial roles to participate in observational field studies to better understand your work environment. This will take approximately 3 hours, where you will be shadowed by a Code for Canada researcher.

These studies will guide the product direction for building a more modern, accessible digital tool for assessing managerial candidates.

Code for Canada is a national nonprofit that connects government innovators with the tech and design community. Our programs enable governments to deliver better digital public services and empower communities to solve civic challenges using technology and design.
