JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — 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 for the Air Force-directed survey is a mechanism for personnel to provide feedback to senior leadership and commanders at all levels.

“This is a perfect opportunity for Total Force Airmen to provide candid feedback on a wide range of topics,” said Col. Kent White, commander, Air Force Manpower Agency. “The results will help leaders determine the health of their organizations and make changes if necessary.”

Topics of interest in this year’s survey included impact of deployment, trust in Air Force leadership, satisfaction, resources, recognition and performance.

Individual email 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. Results should be used  to improve their organization and their organization’s ability to accomplish the mission.

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

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