Research: Veterans are eager to develop their own businesses

Survey among veterans: half of the surveyed veterans want to develop their own business.

The Ukrainian Veterans Foundation presents the results of its latest research, which focuses on identifying the current needs and challenges faced by Ukrainian veterans in the process of adapting to civilian life and finding ways to develop professionally. The study, conducted through an anonymous online survey, reveals important insights into veterans’ career ambitions, support needs and visions of improving the work of specialized state institutions.

Key findings of the study:

  • Career ambitions: 50.14% of the surveyed veterans expressed a desire to develop their own business, while only 10% preferred to be employed.
  • Challenges in the field of employment: The biggest challenge for veterans is mental health (71.14%), followed by insufficient salary (68.94%). They are less concerned about their physical condition and the lack of vacancies in their place of residence.
  • Improving the work of state institutions: Veterans pointed out the need to reduce bureaucracy, focus on veterans’ needs, improve accessibility of information about services, quality of service, expand service offerings and implement digitalization.

The results of the study will be presented at the Ukrinform News Agency on February 13, 2024 at 11 AM, where further steps to improve support for veterans will be discussed.
