WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Approximately 45,000 Navy personnel will be randomly selected to participate in an online survey designed to determine how professionally and personally rewarding the Navy workplace is.

This survey is the first of its kind, reaching all three components of the Navy's workforce – active duty, reserve and civilian employees - and directly supports the recently released Navy's Total Force Vision for the 21st Century (NTF 21), which emphasizes the Total Force of active and reserve Sailors and Navy civilians.

Navy leadership believes it is a Top 50 organization and strives to remain competitive for the best talent in the nation.

In order to develop a baseline upon which to meet future goals and align to this vision, survey questions will examine areas of job satisfaction, organizational commitment, career intentions, tone and communication.

By addressing issues regularly surveyed in corporate America, Navy continues to provide a personally and professionally rewarding workplace climate.

"Tools such as this survey are important for leadership to evaluate individual priorities and career goals of all elements of our workforce—civilians, active duty and reserve," said Asst. Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education Steffanie Easter. "We want to be cognizant of the changing demands of our workforce and need their feedback to keep us on the right track."

Results of the survey will allow Navy leadership to identify and address possible gaps in order to provide the tools needed for personnel to execute the Navy's mission, succeed in their professional goals and strengthen Navy's standing as an employer of choice.

Navy Personnel Research Studies and Technology (NPRST) is administering this survey.
