BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The 2008 Air Force Climate Survey launches on Oct. 1 and runs through Nov. 26.
This survey is the principal means for assessing organizational climate and providing actionable feedback to our unit leaders.
The survey topics remain similar to years past. In fact, the topics are grouped to facilitate ease in trend analysis of the following categories: trust in senior leadership and immediate supervisors; job characteristics; support for deployment; resources; recognition; general satisfaction, unit performance; and unit characteristics.
This year's survey was also customized to accommodate eight to ten major command-specific questions.
They've made a number of improvements since the 2005 Survey, one of them reducing the time required to complete the survey -- projected to take 15 - 20 minutes versus an average 45 - 55 minutes in 2005.
This year's survey will also be sent directly to Airmen via e-mail, rather than requiring members to log onto a Web site.
This survey has a huge impact on Airmen and their leadership, as evidenced by the 50-60 percent participation rate, which equates to over 300,000 participants per survey since 2001.
Finally, based on feedback from the 2005 survey, they've added back an opportunity for open-ended comments. They are aiming for 100 percent participation and value Airmen's support.
