Climate Survey Coming

Airmen will have the opportunity to offer their input to senior leadership and commanders at all levels during the 2012 Air Force climate survey that kicks off on May 14 and runs through June 22, announced service officials Wednesday. “This is a perfect opportunity for all Total Force airmen to provide candid feedback on a wide range of topics,” said Col. Kent White, Air Force Manpower Agency commander. “The results will help leaders determine the health of their organization and make changes if necessary.” Topics in this year’s survey include the effect of deployment, trust in Air Force leadership, satisfaction, resources, recognition, and performance. Individual e-mail invitations for the survey will go out the third week of May. More than 172,000 people responded in the 2010 Air Force Climate Survey, with some 80 percent registering happiness with their jobs and 82 percent indicating general satisfaction with the Air Force, said the officials May 2.
