Intensions Study: Men's Sleep

Intensions Study: Men's Sleep

A new study conducted by the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation (CMHF) and Intensions Consulting has examined the sleep habits of Canadian men.

The study, which surveyed 500 Canadian men between the ages of 30 and 49, found that a third (33%) of men are only getting 4 to 6 hours of sleep each night. This amount of sleep is much lower than the 7 to 8 hours recommended by health experts, and may explain why nearly half of Canadian men (49%) said they often wake up feeling tired or not refreshed in the morning.

“Men may be surprised to learn that getting at least 7 hours of sleep is a great way to speed up your metabolism, reduce your chances of having a heart attack, prostate cancer and developing type 2 diabetes,” said Dr. Larry Goldenberg, Chairman of the CMHF.

Intensions Study: The Future of Work

Intensions Study: The Future of Work

A new study by Intensions Consulting and Nikolas Badminton has examined the future of work across Canada – and the findings suggest some challenges ahead.

The study, which surveyed 2299 adults across Canada, found that a quarter (26%) of Canadian adults believe an unbiased computer program would be more trustworthy and ethical than their workplace leaders and managers. Among younger adults (those aged 20-39) that number was significantly higher, with 31% agreeing that an unbiased computer program would be more trustworthy and ethical than their workplace leaders and managers.

“This study has uncovered a number of interesting and potentially challenging trends for the future of work in Canada,” says Nick Black, Managing Partner at Intensions Consulting. “For younger adults, who have grown up trusting and relying on technology, there seems to be a growing preference for automated leadership and management.”
