Exploring Links Between Naval and Civilian Careers: Lateral Transfer and Eight-Year Careers.
Thomas, John; And Others
This report examines two specific feasibility areas: lateral transfer of personnel between the Navy and industry, and short naval careers. During the course of the study, discussions were held with senior representatives of 38 corporations, with labor union officials and with several Navy areas, including the sections of BuPers and the Naval Training Command. The study has been exploratory in nature and has sought primarily to determine the reaction of industry and of labor to the two concepts. The following conclusions are presented: the principle of lateral transfer between industry and the Navy is acceptable to industry; Navy personnel requirements, at least as regards officers, can be fulfilled from the Naval reserve component for the foreseeable future; precedents for lateral transfer between industry and Navy exist; the lateral transfer of civilians into the Navy postulated during the discussion of the idea with industry does not appear to be workable; short term lateral transfer of Naval officers to industry appears quite workable. Summaries of the discussions with the industries approached are appended. (Author/SA)
