NCAR 2009 Workplace Climate Survey

NCAR 2009 Workplace Climate Survey

In 2009 an all-staff survey was conducted to better understand employees’ perceptions of the workplace. To develop the survey, an ad hoc committee of NCAR female scientists worked with the the American Physical Society's Committee on the Status of Women in Physics (CSWP) to adapt their survey tool for this purpose. This allowed the survey to revisit many questions that the CSWP included in their 2000 survey of the UCAR scientific staff. The Executive Committee for the NCAR Workforce Management Plan also contributed to the survey development process to ensure relevance to all staff.


The survey results provided valuable data regarding employees’ perceptions of UCAR’s workplace climate and employee needs.  As a result, action items were developed and relevant staff enlisted to create action plans to address the needs. Please refer to the NCAR 2009 -2014 Workforce Management Plan Roadmap for this information.
