Here is the sentence - My background reflects the ability to take multiple tasks to completion accurately and in a timely manner.

My question, do I need a comma after completion?

  • English - ,

    It seems to me to be an awkwardly phrased sentence. This would be smoother:

    My background reflects my ability to complete multiple tasks accurately and in a timely manner.

    (No comma needed in either sentence.)

  • English - ,

    Further...! Even better phrasing would be this:

    My background reflects my ability to complete multiple tasks accurately and quickly.

    The phrasing "accurately and in a timely manner" is not good because it's not parallel; that is, you should have two adverbs or two prepositional phrases, not one of each.
