Lt. Cmdr. Timothy Shaffer, department head, Workforce Classification (Code 10), Navy Manpower Analysis Center, Millington, Tennessee, is the award recipient for FY 2018.

The HR JOOY award, established in 2010, recognizes an HR community junior officer each year for their significant contributions to the Navy’s manpower readiness.

According to the award nomination, Shaffer flawlessly implemented the Navy’s transition to a new Navy Enlisted Classification construct and established seven rating prototypes of the CNP-mandated commonality matrix.  His superior efforts linked directly to several Sailor 2025 and Navy Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education (MPT&E) transformation initiatives, such as Rating Modernization and Ready Relevant Learning. 

"Lt. Cmdr. Timothy Shaffer has been recognized for his tremendous impact on Navy manpower readiness.  He displays all the qualities of an outstanding HR junior officer,” said Rear Adm.
