Management of multi-location projects as a determining factor of changes of key competencies of personnel consultants/ HR coordinators
Languages of publication
The objective of the paper was to identify key competencies of personnel consultants/HR coordinators considering implementation of multi-location projects. In 2014, a quantitative-qualitative research was held, based on a questionnaire filled by employees of the company Work Service at such posts. The respondents were asked to select key competencies from a provided list of 32 skills and they could enter their own suggestions, too. During the data analysis, an attempt was made to identify differences between answers provided by respondents who achieved average and above-average financial results. The obtained results were analysed statistically. Average results and standard deviations were calculated. In order to define differences in relevance of key competencies, t-Student test was performed for independent samples, using the IBM SPSS Statistics 21.0 software. Based on the respondents’ opinions, key competencies were identified for leaders of multi-location projects. It was revealed that the respondents had competency gaps in this area. The research confirmed that transformation of organisations into dispersed multi-location structures will require modification of competencies held nowadays by HR project leaders.
