Abstract:

One practice that sets premier organizations apart from others is the ability to hire and retain only the top quality performers. With the increased operational tempo and deployment of the Army National Guard ARNG, and the impact that the full-time Guard person has upon both recruiting and retention, it is crucial to hire and retain only the best full-time employees. Retaining only top quality personnel to include Title 10, 32, and Military Technicians will continue to improve upon the premier organization of the ARNG. To improve current practices, the ARNG must create a challenging and synergistic environment utilizing standardized methodologies and practices in hiring, training, managing, assessing, and retaining a top quality full-time staff. A top quality full-time force will then be able to maintain the highest level of focus on the traditional force structure that will directly affect the overall readiness of the traditional force to include personnel retention. This paper will discuss proven techniques utilized by major United States Corporate Organizations that can be implemented by the ARNG to improve the performance and caliber of the full-time employees by implementing a systematic program of identifying talent, rewarding superior performance, and eliminating the non-performers.
