Analysis of a study on the ability of production managers to effectively self-disclose to a target person.
This paper uses statistical data to investigate the differences between the self-disclosing abilities of production managers of Fortune 100 and Fortune 1000 companies. Factors such as managerial experience, age, and gender are considered in the research investigation.
“The present study, requested by an outplacement employee service company (Calvin Sourcing), attempted to determine whether or not a difference existed in the ability of production managers, from fortune 1000 companies and fortune 100 companies, to effectively self-disclose (communicate) to some target person. The secondary purpose of the study was to investigate the extent to which manager gender, age, and length of service influenced a person’s ability to self-disclose. Self-disclosure has been deemed important in terms of new hire placement, corporate advancement, skill attainment, and employee motivation.”
