Abstract

There is limited research on the benefits of accent modification services on employment. This study sought to contribute to the current literature by examining the opinions of speech-language pathologists and human resource professionals on the benefits of accent modification services. The researcher surveyed speech-language pathologists who currently provide accent modification services to clients and human resource professionals who currently belong to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The major conclusions of this study were that there is limited awareness and knowledge by human resource professionals on accent modification services and that individuals’ communication, perception, and confidence were benefited more than direct employment benefits after accent modification services.
