Climate Survey

A Climate Survey was distributed to all Department staff in September 2011. The results from a total of 1832 respondents (approximately 55%) are posted here. Results of both the survey statement rankings and the write-in comments were broken down by program areas and distributed to the assistant secretaries.
All topics were included in a department-wide plan to improve the overall climate of the agency. The major initiatives are represented in the graphic below, with further clarification following.
