Abstract

Goal: identify the key competencies, in the perception of the senior officers and the warrant officers of the Air Force, necessary for the enlisted men to perform their functions and subject to consideration for updating the existing performance evaluation instrument.

Methodology: preliminarily, a documentary and bibliographic research was carried out, capable of supporting the construction of a questionnaire, which was answered by 674 senior officers and 727 warrant officers belonging to the research target audience. Data were analyzed using centrality and dispersion parameters, also considering Pearson's coefficient of variation.

Results: 29 competencies could be identified as being the main key competencies, highlighting those related to the alignment with military precepts.

Limitations: it is possible to obtain a large amount of data using questionnaire, but the method does not allow to deepen the structure and processes that involve the questions asked. Also, distortions can occur caused by the subjectivity present in the respondents' perception.

Practical implications: the results proved to be a proposal to updating the current performance evaluation system for enlisted men.

Value: the value of this research is its contribution to a better performance evaluation system for the Brazilian Air Force enlisted men.

Key Words: Competencies survey; Performance evaluation; Military promotion; Professional development.
