Abstract
Recruitment of military personnel has become a concern internationally. In response to this concern, a NATO Task Group (TG) on Recruiting and Retention of Personnel was formed. This paper compiles some of the information gathered by the NATO TG on Recruiting and Retention of Personnel. In this paper, literature related to recruitment of personnel is reviewed with a focus on military personnel. A definition of recruitment is proposed, and, the recruitment variables that are expected to play a critical role in applicant attraction to the military are identified. Specifically, research related to recruitment outcomes and antecedents is described. Research findings are discussed along with gaps in the literature.
