Education, v127 n3 p410-418 Spr 2007
The major purpose of this study was to determine human resource managers' perceptions of selected communication competencies. The business communication competencies studied were 1. writing and speaking, 2. interpersonal/collaborative competencies and 3. global communication competences. A questionnaire was developed and mailed to human resource managers in the 200 largest companies in Dallas/Ft. Worth area. The study analyzed human resource managers' current views on selected communication competencies. The questionnaire identified 44 competencies for which the respondents were asked to indicate how essential the competency was for a new business graduate to possess to be employed. The two competencies that ranked the highest were "integrity in communication" and "appropriate confidentiality in communication." (Contains 1 table.)
