Air Force active duty, Reserve, Guard, appropriated fund and non-appropriated fund civilians have an opportunity to voice their concerns to leadership during the 2012 Air Force Climate Survey, which kicks off May 14 and runs through June 22.

The chief of staff of the Air Force-directed survey enables Air Force personnel to provide feedback to senior leadership and commanders at all levels.

“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 impact 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. As in past surveys, unit leaders will receive their units’ results, if 10 or more members respond, to improve their organization and their organization’s ability to accomplish the mission.

More than 172,000 people responded in the 2010 Air Force Climate Survey. Results showed that more than 80 percent of the survey respondents were happy with their jobs and 95 percent agreed their unit is successfully accomplishing its mission. Additionally, 82 percent of all survey respondents indicated they were generally satisfied with the Air Force.

“Through the Air Force Climate Survey, all Air Force members have the chance to highlight concerns that directly affect them and their units’ mission,” said Grover Lindsey, chief of the performance management division at the Air Force Manpower Agency. “This feedback serves to improve each organization and our entire Air Force. Look for your personal invitation to the survey in your inbox and Speak Today, Shape Tomorrow!”
