412th TW Climate Assessment

412th Test Wing commander

Thank you in advance for participating in this assessment of the human relations climate within the 412th Test Wing.
This assessment provides you an opportunity to express your thoughts, opinions and feelings regarding our organization.

This assessment is being conducted by the Equal Opportunity Office and will address morale; communications between unit members and their supervisors; attitudes and perceptions of assigned personnel of different ranks, races, ethnic backgrounds and genders; and overall organizational health. In addition, I’ve included questions that will help me gauge if we are meeting the spiritual needs and safety concerns of our community. The comment section is the ideal way to let me know what we are doing well and those areas that need improvement.

To properly assess our unit’s climate, I am requesting you complete this anonymous survey that began Nov. 19 and end Dec. 12. In the event the end date is extended the access code will remain valid. The survey will ask you to provide demographic information such as your rank, race, and gender.

The demographic information you provide will be used to ensure we have a proper representation of participants. To further protect your anonymity, when there are less than six respondents within a demographic area, individual responses will not be visible to me in the report generated by the Equal Opportunity Office.

To begin the survey you must connect to the Internet. Supervisors are instructed to allow sufficient duty time and too make available computers for employees that don’t have access to computers. As a last resort, individuals electing to participate in the survey may utilize computers at the base library.

The survey can be found at this URL: https://www.famnetuca.net/user/login/login02.cfm.

An ACCESS CODE is required to gain access to the survey. This case-sensitive code has been randomly generated for our unit only and is not associated with individual names or other personal identifying source. Upon entry allow yourself 15-20 minutes to complete the survey. The access code has been sent out via e-mail to all base workers.

Where feasible, I plan to use the results to improve the human relations climate and to better the working environment within the organization. In turn, I look forward to sharing the results of the assessment with the members of our organization in the near future.

If you have additional questions concerning this assessment (EDW13045), or the survey you are being asked to complete, my point of contacts are Chief Master Sgt. Brian Randolph at (661) 277-6897, Alfred Wilson, or Master Sgt. James Bonner at (661) 277-7985.

Thanks again for the support as we work to continually improve the 412th TW.

The unseen leader

Over the years, I’ve seen many leaders come and go. The ones I admired, I took note of the traits I wished I had, as well as the ones I already possessed. It took me a long time to realize some of my personal and professional weaknesses were the very areas I gravitated toward in...
 
 

Never underestimate your impact

Every day I visit our great Airmen and every day I come across more than one that underestimates their impact to the mission. There’s the one-stripe maintainer, “just repaneling an aircraft,” for the next day’s flight, or the young personalist, “just issuing another identification card,” or the defender, “just guarding the gate.” The list could...

Challenge yourself: Never give up, never quit

I once read that newly created cells in our bodies do one of two things: they either begin to decay or they become more vital. These cells choose their path based on what we demand of them. If we are sedentary, our brains signa...

Who am I? Who are you? Who are we?

What’s your job? Over the years, I’ve been asked this question countless times whether it be while in-processing new units, deploying, attending professional military education, or while participating in various panels. The answers are as numerous and varied as the titles in the Air Force. For most of us, the answer is easy. I am...
