This study focussed on the perceptions of the Navy's Human Resource Management Specialists (HRMSs) toward their coworkers and the Human Resources Management (HRM) program. Thirty HRMSs from all the HRM centers and detachments were interviewed using an open ended interview guide. The data were analyzed by using the methodologies of Dunham & Smith, McCall & Simmons, Schatzman & Strauss, and Webb's "Triangulation" technique. The data indicated perceptions of an improved image in the fleet. Concern was varied about top level support, marketing for the HRM program, the possibility of a future voluntary HRM cycle, and the emphasis currently being placed on certain HRM programs. The HRMS was perceived as improving in quality, yet some thought more stringent entry criteria were needed. The need for warfare specialists and HRMSs with previous experience was also expressed. Recommendations are offered for improving the image of the Navy's HRM program based on the data.
