Tarter, Wadsworth thank employees for survey turnout

The 2001 Assessing the Workplace Survey administration period ended last Friday. More than 70 percent of Laboratory employees completed and submitted surveys.

"I am very pleased with this response," Director Bruce Tarter said. "I want to thank employees for taking the survey to tell us what they think about the Laboratory as a workplace. This high response will give us confidence in the validity of actions we take based on the analysis of the survey data."

Deputy Director for Science and Technology Jeff Wadsworth added, "This is a terrific turn out — exceeding even the 68 percent response to the 1995 diversity focused survey. I want to add my appreciation for the time employees took to participate in the survey."

ISR will now begin collating and analyzing the data. Jan Tulk, AD for Administration said, "We expect to receive the results from ISR by late summer and we will keep you posted on when and how the results will be available, as well as the implementation plans for change based on the survey results."
