JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO – RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Would you like to tell your leaders what you think? You have that opportunity through the 2012 Air Force Climate Survey.

The survey officially kicked off Monday, and soon all Airmen will receive email invitations with a personalized link to enable them to share their thoughts, said Nicole Gamez, Air Force Manpower Agency. The survey will be available online through June 22.

The Air Force Climate Survey solicits opinions and perceptions of Air Force active duty, Reserve, Guard and civilian personnel on a wide range of topics, including resources, recognition, satisfaction and unit performance.

“Every member of the Total Force, military or civilian, plays a critical part in our mission success,” said Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley. “The questions are hard-hitting and we need your direct, honest feedback.”

The survey includes major command-specific questions, as well as opportunities to express opinions on how organizations can improve.

“Your feedback is confidential, so do not hesitate to let us know how you truly feel,” Donley said. “If there are issues that need to be addressed, I want you to be candid and say so. If you are satisfied with your work environment, I would like to know that too.”

Survey results will be briefed to Donley and Air Force Chief of Staff in September.

“It is important to note that unit reports do not contain any demographic information aside from active duty, Guard, Reserve or civilian status and officer, enlisted or civilian category breakouts,” Gamez said. “If fewer than seven people respond to any status or category, the results for that status or category will not be reported in a breakout at that unit level. “

All responses roll up to the next unit level until there are seven or more members who respond to that status or category, she explained.

Through the survey, all Air Force members are able to communicate concerns that directly affect them and the unit mission.

“The feedback serves to improve each organization and our entire Air Force,” said Gamez. “Look for your personal invitation to participate in the survey in your inbox and speak today to shape tomorrow!”
