Abstract : The study was conducted to determine the acceptance of recent policy changes implemented by 'Z-Grams' or, more specifically, how the changes affected perceptions of the attractiveness of Navy life, morale, job satisfaction and Navy career plans. Both officers and enlisted men believed that Navy life had been improved by changes in leave and liberty privileges, personal services, regulations, and family services. Officers alone believed this way about changes in equal rights opportunities and retention programs, while enlisted men believed this way about changes in living and housing conditions. Officers reported that changes in living and housing conditions had not appreciably improved life, while enlisted men reported the same about changes in equal rights opportunities and retention programs. Both enlisted men and officers indicated that changes in job and career development programs had not appreciably improved Navy life. (Author)
