Navy Personnel Command leaders will be arriving in Norfolk, Aug. 13-16, to meet Sailors to discuss the latest personnel policies and initiatives impacting the fleet.
The team’s itinerary will include discussion of recently announced initiatives like Limited Directed Detailing, Chief Petty Officer (CPO) Early Return to Sea, and Voluntary Sea Duty Program, all designed to ensure high-priority billets at sea are manned. They will also conduct additional briefs on Navy force management initiatives including Fleet Ride Perform-to-Serve (FR-PTS), enlisted and officer community health and recent changes to Career Management System Interactive Detailing (CMS/ID) the web-based program enlisted Sailors use to review and apply for permanent change of station (PCS) orders.
Capt. Steve Holmes, Bureau of Naval Personnel, director, community management branch, describes the upcoming visit “an excellent opportunity to get feedback directly from the fleet.”
“The visit is intended to ensure command leadership teams understand current manpower programs as well as promote the professional and personal development of our Sailors,” Holmes said.
Schedule of the briefs are as follows:
Aug. 13 and 14 – Naval Station Norfolk
Aug. 15 – Naval Air Station Oceana
Aug. 16 – On board USS Bataan (LHD 5)
“The briefs are designed to provide information needed to make informed career decision. They target leadership and Sailors to give each the information needed in the current operating environment,” Holmes added.
