Air Force releases Morale, Welfare, Recreation survey

Ever feel like you had the perfect idea for a new activity at your base but were not sure who to tell? Now is the perfect time to be heard.

The Air Force Personnel Center Directorate of Services recently began sending recreational leisure surveys to Airmen located within the continental United States June 19.

The survey results will be used to identify new opportunities to meet recreational interests and how Services can deliver programs to meet changing needs, with more emphasis on providing the right programs to the right people.

“The Recreational Interests Survey is the first of its kind,” said Col. Marc Piccolo, Air Force Personnel Center director of Services. “We’ll use the results to learn what leisure time activities Airmen, civilians and families want, and to better understand how best to provide these activities.”

A random sample of 50,000 Airmen and civilians will receive an email invitation asking them to participate in the survey. They will be asked to mark activities they have done in the past 12 months and mark the activities they would like to do again or mark the option that they would like to try a specific activity.

“The Air Force will gain knowledge relating to participation levels in current activities regardless of where they are being held,” said Carol Sudy, Marketing Strategy and Research Branch chief. “We will gather vital information from the survey which will lead to the development of programs that lead to retention and resiliency.”

The Recreational Interest Survey will help determine relevant markets for new, revised and improved activities and programs.

“The Air Force needs this survey to help provide direction for future programming so that we may meet the recreational and leisure needs of the Air Force community,” said Carol Arnold, Air Force Personnel Center marketing research specialist. “We ask that survey respondents take their time as they review the activity lists so we can get an accurate account of recreational interests. This survey will measure interests, and thus help determine the directions we should take with future programming.”
