Abstract

Shaping the image of a soldier is directly related to the activities undertaken in the Polish Army and referred to as post evaluation. Opinions treated as a personal process serve to assess the professional suitability of soldiers, which directly corresponds to the need to shape and take care of a positive image of a soldier. Existing in the army, the criteria for issuing opinions do not always correspond to the criteria used in society, but are the basis for social evaluation of a soldier’s image. Bearing the above in mind, the aim of this article is to show the criteria for evaluating soldiers used in the system of official opinion, together with the presentation, on the basis of the results of empirical research, of the criteria considered socially important and necessary in the process of evaluating the activities of soldiers. The presentation of the organisational and social perspective will allow for a better understanding of the factors influencing the existing image (both organisational and social) of soldiers in Poland.
