Abstract:

The Human Resource Management HRM Survey is the principal diagnostic instrument used in the Navys Human Resource Management Support System. Patterned after the Survey of Organizations see Taylor and Bowers, 1972, the survey is primarily designed to assess the perceptions of personnel within an organizational unit. Two factor analyses were performed on responses to the HRM survey. The first used responses from 362 naval personnel on the sea survey Form 9 and the second, from 477 naval personnel on the shore survey Form 11. Five factors emerged on both surveys, namely 1 Supervisory Leadership, 2 Work Group Processes, 3 Command Climate, 4 Satisfaction with the Navy as an Occupation, and 5 Equal Opportunity. In addition, Drug and Alcohol Usage emerged as a factor on the sea survey, and Bureaucratic Practices, on the shore survey.
