WorldatWork and Buck Consultants jointly conducted a survey of electronic communication practices in compensation and human resources. Respondents were asked questions on the following topics: electronic inventory and priority, Web site/intranet uses, electronic communications policies and goal achievement.
A random sample of 4,301 WorldatWork members received the survey and 530 participated, a response rate of 12 percent. The demographic profile of the survey’s respondents is similar to that of the WorldatWork membership as a whole. The typical WorldatWork member (and survey respondent) works at the managerial level or higher in the headquarters of a large company in North America. Ninety-five percent of the Fortune 1000 companies employ a WorldatWork member.
