In connection with benchmark studies on the same topic conducted about the Chinese mainland (Feng & Goodman, 2010), the European Union (Frandsen, & Johansen, 2008), South Africa (de Wet et al., 2008) and the United States (e.g. Goodman, 2011), this study, conducted under the auspices of the Hong Kong Chapter of CCI (CCI-HKC), attempts to initiate a similar longitudinal study in HK (footnote 1 refers) to inform respectively local and overseas practitioners of the local status and trends of CC. Together with the aforementioned studies, it is hoped that the findings of this study will help contribute to the construction of a global mosaic about CC. Specifically, this study attempts to 1. Establish respectively a profile of the corporate respondents and their CC department 2. Identify the major clients and major roles and functions of their CC department 3. Identify the CC functions that are usually contracted out to external vendors 4. Find out respectively the respondents’ major concerns and 5. Their preferred attributes of graduating students who wish to adopt CC as their career

In the fall of 1999, the founders of CCI carried out a benchmark survey to describe the current state of communication in Fortune 1000 companies. The main objective of the survey was to find out the responsibilities of corporate communication professionals, what they do, and how the corporate communication function is structured in the contemporary corporation.
The results of the survey are summarized in a presentation given on March 8, 2000, to the Institute and are made available here.
