Air Force claims 80% of airmen are satisfied with the Air Force

The Air Force claims the results for the Air Force’s Total Force Climate Survey show that more than 80 percent of Airmen are satisfied, in general.

The survey focused on eight core factors including Air Force senior leadership support, unit senior leader support, immediate supervisor support, satisfaction, resources, recognition, unit performance and unit alliance, according to the Air Force.

The survey was conducted from March 13 – April 27, 2015 and around 23 percent of active duty, civilian Airmen, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard completed it.

The 2015 survey had more than 132,000 respondents, which is about 30,000 less than the last time it was conducted in 2012.

The results of the 2015 survey were expected to be released after three months but they were not released until a year and a half after it was conducted.

Earlier this month, Air Force personnel chief Lt. Gen. Gina Gross told Air Force Times that releasing the results got overlooked.

“There’s nothing controversial in it,” she said at the Air Force Association breakfast on Oct. 12. “It just got lost in all the things that we’re doing.”

The survey found that 63 percent of respondents said there are enough people in their group or team to accomplish the job, with about 73 percent saying they have enough time to accomplish their daily workload during their duty hours, according to the Air Force Times.

90 percent of respondents said the quality of work in their unit is high, but just 69 percent said that steps are taken to deal with those who do not meet performance standards. As many as 89 percent agreed that their immediate supervisor is concerned about their well-being.

Results from the past four surveys are available on the Air Force Portal.
