Results of the 2013 Organizational Command Climate Survey

This year’s survey was administered from April through May to over 2,400 currently serving members and employees.  The survey was lengthy, but also specific to the MNNG by including questions built exclusively to query the uniformed and non-uniformed members.  This assessment gauges respondent feedback on 13 organizational effectiveness measures, seven equal opportunity areas, and five free-form write in questions. 

Strengths:
– Job Satisfaction of Workforce – rated 4.0 “Satisfied” out of a 5.0 point scale.
– 91% of members know who to call if they or another member are in crisis.
– Organizational effectiveness measures and EO areas all outpace NGB average.
– Overall EO behaviors in the organization are prevalent and perceived discrimination was low.

Opportunity for Improvement:
–12% of respondents report discrimination occurs, unchanged from FY12.
– Although sexual harassment discrimination was down 8% from perceptions in FY12, 65% of respondents perceive barriers to sexual assault reporting.
– Non-uniformed members perceive far less trust and cohesion in the organization than uniformed members of the MNNG.
– 40% of the MNNG does not perceive opportunities for career advancement.
