Whilst this achievement is almost certainly one you will obtain by simply going through the story, there are a few things you can do to speed it up.

Upgrade the Fulton Recovery System
Like everything else, your R&D Team can develop upgrades for your Fulton and while you only need the basic one to start bringing in troops, upgrading it can give you more fultons to use before having to resupply or return to Mother Base. Later upgrades can even stop other enemy soldiers from shooting down your Fulton balloons, guaranteeing an extraction of the soldier you decide to take with you. You get as many as 48 Fulton balloons to use before the need to resupply. If you simply extract every soldier you come across, you'll have your achievement in no time.

Combat Deployment
In the missions tab of your iDroid you can find the Combat Deployment section. Here you can dispatch the soldiers at Mother Base on missions, one of which can be recruitment missions, where your soldiers will search for personnel to bring back with them. These will also reward you with a bit of GMP.

Heroic Actions
By increasing your heroism as you perform actions like recusing prisoners and sneaking up on guards, you increase the chance of having troops volunteer to join Mother Base. The higher your heroism is, the better volunteers you'll attract.

Hope I helped.
