Shape tomorrow through 2010 Air Force Climate Survey

DAVIS MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. -- The 2010 Air Force Climate Survey, a survey designed to assess factors that affect units and work centers while allowing each participant to provide direct feedback to his or her unit leadership, is scheduled to be conducted Oct. 1 through Nov. 28.

The survey questions measure organizational climate concepts and provide leadership with a summary of those particular areas for their organization. The ten factors are: Performance Culture, Trust in Air Force Leadership, Trust in Senior Leadership, Trust in Immediate Supervisor, Your Job/General Satisfaction, Resources, Support for Deployment, Recognition, Unit Performance and Trust in Airmen. In addition to a set of basic questions that show trends over time, new items were added that reflect current Air Force issues with open comment questions.

Beginning Oct. 1, Airmen will receive an email invitation with an individual link to take the survey. Participants can only access the survey through that link using their government common access card. The invitation is not to be forwarded nor shared with any other person.

The survey provides information to leaders about how members perceive their work environment and is a catalyst for dialogue between leadership and unit members.

The 2010 Air Force Climate Survey theme is "Speak Today, Shape Tomorrow." The wing goal for the 2010 survey is to ensure that all eligible personnel at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base have the opportunity to voice their concerns to their leadership. The survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

For questions concerning the 2010 Air Force Climate Survey, participants can speak to base points of contact Senior Master Sgt. Basil Payne via email at or by phone at 228-2603, or myself via email at or by phone at 228-0522.
