Keeping Up with the Teams
by Melissa Polson
In August this year, the Chief Warrant Officer Home Page was established on Microsoft Teams for our active and Reserve CWOs. This has brought communication to an accelerated level not readily transparent in the past. Our CWOs now have a central location for discussions with the Specialty Force Managers, Assignment Officers, CWO Professional Development Staff at LDC, and each other. Discussions are happening daily on the health of our workforce and creating new avenues for understanding the mysteries behind the decision making process at the top level of our service. If you're AD or Reserve and you're not connected to the Teams page, please send me an email so we can get you the link.
A few topics of discussion lately:
-CWO SFM Realignment submission to the Ideas@Work platform
-Workforce Strength Report - SEP 23
-Revised cutoffs for Appointment to CWO
-Assignment Year 24 Updates
-CWOPD FY24 Course Schedule
-Investigating Officer Special Duty Pay
If you have topics you'd like to get on the board, start that discussion today. We've never been more connected to our total workforce; its just a matter of learning how to harness the new technology.
Now, let me go find my high-schooler so he can explain it to me... :)
