HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT

1. REF A OUTLINED THE CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES CONFRONTING THE NAVY DURING THE COMING YEAR. TO PROVIDE SUPPORT TO ALL NAVAL UNITS IN MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE 1970’S IN THE AREAS OF COMMAND DEVELOPMENT, RACE RELATIONS, INTERCULTURAL RELATIONS, AND DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE EDUCATION, REHABILITATION AND CONTROL, I HAVE ESTABLISHED WITHIN THE BUREAU OF NAVAL PERSONNEL A PROJECT MANAGER FOR HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT (PERS-PC). THIS PROJECT MANAGER IS DEVELOPING AND SUPERVISING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NAVY-WIDE PROGRAMS IN THE ABOVE AREAS.

2. THE PROJECT MANAGER WILL DEVELOP AND COORDINATE THESE PROGRAMS WITH THE FOLLOWING OBJECTIVES:

A. COMMAND DEVELOPMENT: DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT BOTH EDUCATIONAL AND ORGANIZATIONAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMS WHICH PROVIDE THE MEANS TO ACHIEVE INCREASED COMMAND EXCELLENCE THROUGH INTEGRATION OF MEN AND MISSION IN A WAY THAT THE SKILLS AND CREATIVITY POSSESSED BY NAVY PERSONNEL WILL BE FULLY UTILIZED.

B. RACE RELATIONS: IDENTIFY AND ELIMINATE BOTH INDIVIDUAL AND INSTITUTIONAL RACISM AS IT APPEARS WITHIN THE NAVY.

C. INTERCULTURAL RELATIONS: IMPROVE RELATIONS BETWEEN NAVAL PERSONNEL (AND THEIR FAMILIES) AND FOREIGN NATIONALS IN ORDER TO ENHANCE THE ABILITY OF INDIVIDUALS TO TAKE MAXIMUM ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITIES PRESENTED BY CONTACT WITH PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT CULTURES.

D. DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE EDUCATION, REHABILITATION AND CONTROL: PROVIDE EFFECTIVE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS ON ALL FACETS OF DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE AND PROVIDE REHABILITATION PROGRAMS FOR DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSERS.

3. AS THE ABOVE PROGRAMS ARE IMPLEMENTED, THEY WILL OF NECESSITY INVOLVE EACH PERSON IN THE NAVY TO SOME EXTENT. HOWEVER, FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DESIRE TO SERVE FULL TIME IN THEIR DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION, OPPORTUNITIES EXIST IN EACH PROGRAM AND AT MANY MAJOR FLEET CONCENTRATION AREAS FOR QUALIFIED AND HIGHLY MOTIVATED PERSONNEL IN ALL RANKS AND RATES. ACADEMIC OR PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE QUALIFICATIONS ARE DESIRABLE BUT NOT ESSENTIAL. OFFICER AND ENLISTED PERSONNEL DESIRING TO SERVE IN THESE PROGRAMS SHOULD SO INDICATE ON THEIR DUTY PREFERENCE CARDS. IN ADDITION, OFFICER PERSONNEL SHOULD INITIATE A LETTER TO THE CHIEF OF NAVAL PERSONNEL (PERS-PC) AND ENLISTED PERSONNEL SHOULD INITIATE A TRANSFER AND SPECIAL DUTY REQUEST (NAVPERS 1306/7) TO THE CHIEF OF NAVAL PERSONNEL (PERS-B2, COPY TO PERS-PC). COMMANDING OFFICERS, WHEN PREPARING THEIR FORWARDING ENDORSEMENTS, SHOULD INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING DATA REGARDING PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AND/OR ACADEMIC BACKGROUND:

A. ACADEMIC: UNDERGRADUATE, POSTGRADUATE OR ANY SPECIALIZED TRAINING SHOULD BE SUBMITTED INDICATING SCHOOL, DEGREE, COURSES OF ENDEAVOR.

B. EXPERIENCE: COMMAND AND/OR DEMONSTRATED MANAGERIAL CAPABILITY. SPECIFIC PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE IN AREAS RELATED TO PERS-PC PROGRAMS SHOULD BE INDICATED; CITE PARTICULAR AGENCY OR UNIT, TIME FRAME INVOLVED, ITS SCOPE AND SUPERVISOR.

4. THE SUPPORT OF ALL NAVY MEN AND WOMEN IS NEEDED IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THESE NEW INITIATIVES IN ORDER THAT WE MAY DEVELOP AN ENVIRONMENT TO IMPROVE BOTH THE SATISFACTION AND THE EFFECTIVENESS OF EACH INDIVIDUAL IN THE NAVY. E. R. ZUMWALT, JR., ADMIRAL, U.S. NAVY, CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS.
