The U.S. Navy‘s top personnel officer was scheduled to visit sailors in San Diego and Hawaii this week, with plans to discuss new job training procedures and improving on-the-job performance, Navy officials announced Sunday.
Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Robert Burke and Fleet Master Chief April Beldo will visit Naval Air Station North Island and Naval Base San Diego while in California, as well as Pearl Harbor and Kaneohe Bay in Hawaii.
The primary topic of discussion will be Sailor 2025, described as a transformational Navy training initiative that focuses on optimizing a sailor’s performance across his or her career in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
“We have done a lot of work on Sailor 2025 over the past year, and it’s important that we meet with sailors to let them know we’re working on their behalf as we modernize and improve the Navy’s personnel system,” Burke said.
“As we continue to improve our personnel policies and programs, fleet feedback is vital to our efforts. Hearing from sailors is the number one way we can make our policies and systems better.”
Burke’s visit to the Pacific will be his first as chief of Naval personnel.
“From the South China Sea to the shores of California, sailors in the Pacific are doing extraordinary work 24/7/365,” Burke said. “They are conducting operations where it matters and also providing us with valuable fleet input and perspective on a variety of personnel policies and issues, as evidenced by the Pacific Fleet Rating Modernization Operational Planning Team (OPT).”
