Employer Assessment of Work-Related Competencies and Workplace Adaptation
Reio, Thomas G., Jr.; Sutton, Faye C.
This exploratory study identified 17 work-related competencies that might relate to superior job performance and examined their relationship to the successful workplace adaptation of recent co-op engineering graduates. Traditional mail and web-based surveys were employed. The research questions were examined through correlations, t tests, ANOVAs, and multiple regressions. Work-related competency scores were similar among the graduates who co-oped and those who did not. The results suggested a relationship between the competencies tested and workplace adaptation.
