Abstract
Dimensions of personnel tempo, such as heavy workload and frequent and lengthy deployments have been considered a critical area of concern for military planners and researchers. Nevertheless, no unifying model or framework has been proposed to understand how these dimensions interplay and relate to important individual and organizational outcomes, and to factors that could mitigate the impact of personnel tempo on these outcomes. A model of personnel tempo was developed in order to provide an effective way to describe how demands of military service can impact retention, performance and overall organizational effectiveness. This model will allow researchers to organize various components of the Human Dimensions of Deployment Study (HDDS) sponsored by Directorate of Quality of Life (DQOL) into a comprehensive framework. As such, it has considerable value as a tool to integrate research efforts and a starting point for the systematic exploration of the impact of perstempo on CF members and their families.
