Army HR Command Updates Online Tool to Support Enlisted Soldiers’ Career Devt

The Army Human Resources Command has updated an online tool initially designed to fill vacant positions for unit deployment into a career development tool for enlisted soldiers across the service branch.

The U.S. Army said Wednesday the Assignment Satisfaction Key program will help enlisted soldiers in ranks E-1 through E-8 non-promotable to designate assignment location and assignment preferences.

“The idea is to empower soldiers in the assignment process… It allows for Soldiers to see requisitions, volunteer for them, and indicate their preferences for assignments,” said Arthur Dille, human resources supervisor at HRC’s enlisted procedures and soldier actions branch.

“We want to have more soldiers have more say in the assignment system with a corresponding increased approval rate.”

The service branch noted that the inclusion of lower requisition priorities increases the available pool of assignment opportunities fourfold and HRC hopes to attract more soldiers to use the tool.
