Human Resource


For any organization, the human resource perspective is all-important; for the Philippine Army (PA), it is not only critical but also essential. It is understandable, therefore, for the PA to set forth three strategic priorities under this perspective.

The first refers to the "recruitment and retention of the best and brightest." In this regard, the Army is putting forward three scorecards, with initiatives, measures, and targets, as follows:

1. It proposes to significantly improve its Personnel Management System, whilst improving its brand, such that the ratio of applicants to the quota of recruits it has per year should rise above its present level.

The second refers to the "continuous build-up and development of the character and competence of Army personnel." This should lead to these two scorecards:
