The organization which I will describe in this case assignment is the US Army. The US Army makes 39 percent of the entire armed forces total strength thus making it the largest organization within the Department of Defense. It currently consist of 558,840 Soldiers (Armed Forces Strenghts Figures for February 28, 2010 2010) and it has been authorized to increase its strength to a total of 569,000 by the end of fiscal year 2011 (Kruzel 2009). The organization personnel both military and civilian is composed of various elements, each one of them requiring its own process. In the military side these elements are the Officers, Warrant Officers, and Enlisted. However, they share a common aspect in the selection process. For the purpose of this case assignment the main focus of attention will be on the enlisted members of the force. This segment of the total manpower composed the majority of the US Army’s formation. In order to maintain its authorized strength or manpower the US Army relies in a selection process or processing system which consists of an interview process with the recruiter and various tests. These tests are designed to evaluate the applicant’s academic progress, health and physical fitness, and psychological or behavioral wellbeing to make sure they are mentally capable to perform the duties required by the profession among other things (USAREC 16 October 2006). Additionally, a criminal records background check and drug use test are required since most of the recruits, as they progress within their careers, might be required to work with or around sensitive information. This process provides a profile of the individual which in return is used to identify his or her overall occupational qualifications. How can the US Army improve the ROI on its selection system?

Bottom line upfront (BLUF): It must improve its initial screening of applicants and enforce its own enlistment requirements by not minimizing them when the recruiting pool shrinks. The recruiter’s mission is to it to recruit the best candidates
