Airmen give input in climate survey

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas – Ramstein Airmen will have
the power to shape the Air Force of the future through the 2005 Air
Force Climate Survey that began Oct. 1.

“This survey will help us ensure we are taking care of our most
important asset – our people,” said Chief of Staff of the Air Force,
Gen. T. Michael Moseley. “We have used the most advanced
information-masking reporting software available to ensure your
identity will be protected.

“The questions in the survey itself are intentionally hard-hitting, and I fully expect your direct, honest and candid feedback.”

The survey, themed “Speak Today, Shape Tomorrow,” provides a unique
total force perspective and includes active-duty, Reserve, Air National
Guard and both appropriated and nonappropriated funded civilians.
The identities of each participant are protected and every response is reviewed for consideration.

In past surveys, respondents have provided feedback on issues that
affect their organizations’ ability to perform the mission, such as
resources, training and development and unit flexibility.
This year, respondents are being asked to provide feedback on their immediate supervisor’s “enduring competencies.”

The Air Force’s enduring competencies are the personal, managerial and
leadership qualities that should be common to all Air Force members.
These results will provide senior leaders with a valuable baseline of the competencies used for force development.

“It’s your chance to provide honest and straightforward answers to
issues that directly affect you and your fellow Airmen,” said Chief
Master Sgt. of the Air Force Gerald R. Murray.

The survey is available and can be accessed from work or home through Nov. 23 online at
