HFM RTG-226 Visits KFOR for Data Collection
The personnel compositions of defence organizations are unique – comprised of integrated military and civilian workforces who, although often working closely together (e.g., at headquarters, on bases, on operations, in military educational institutions), are governed by different personnel management systems and have very distinct cultures. These factors can affect the nature of collaboration between these two groups, and ultimately influence both employee well-being and organizational effectiveness.
