Title Recommendations for Enhancing U.S. Army Company Grade Officer Career Continuance.

Abstract This report recommends potential initiatives to improve the retention of company grade officers. The report builds on prior work completed for the ARI research program entitled 'Strategies to Enhance Retention' (STAY). The officer portion of the STAY program sought, over a three-year period, to improve the continuance of the Army's company grade officers. The recommendations are based on (a) focus groups and interviews on Army posts, (b) interviews with other subject matter experts, (c) literature review, (d) the model of company grade officer continuance, (e) the results of the evaluation of three interventions developed to enhance continuance, and (f) special expert panel meetings. First, we summarize major factors that were identified in focus groups and interviews as negatively and positively influencing officer retention. Then we propose a set of recommendations for future initiatives, organized in terms of the factors identified as influencing retention. Within each description, we discuss the nature of the intervention, the reasons the intervention should improve retention, and issues that may limit the effectiveness or feasibility of the intervention. Finally, we present recommendations that are specific to the three STAY interventions and the model of officer career continuance.
