3rd quarter incentive window opening soon


FORT KNOX, Ky. – The window for recruiters, recruiting stations, and recruiting companies to compete for third quarter incentives starts Apr. 1.

Companies and stations can continue to compete for the U.S. Army Recruiting Command Gold Standard, and recruiters can compete to earn the Commanding General’s Challenge Award.

The USAREC Gold Standard will be awarded to the companies and stations that demonstrate excellence within the quarter. To be awarded the Gold Standard, stations and companies must achieve 110 percent Net GSA mission accomplishment, less than 10 percent Future Soldier loss rate, less than 25 percent zero to nine day Future Soldier loss rate, zero NCOPDS or functional course no shows, and zero Army Physical Fitness Test or height/weight failures.

The CG’s Challenge Award is awarded to the top 10 recruiters in each brigade and top five in each medical recruiting battalion who complete the most actions that lead to enlistments, as validated on the Gold Badge report. These recruiters will be awarded a limited edition coin rack and CG certificate.

Recruiters can reference the different incentives and the requirements for each in the Annual Awards Criteria Memorandum of Instruction for fiscal 2018. Award winners will be announced at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
