To the Men and Women of the Coast Guard,
Many of you will be invited to participate in the 2014 RAND Military Workplace Study. This RAND survey is a critical step toward all of our efforts to uphold our Duty to People. I ask that you provide us with candid, honest and direct feedback. The survey is being administered entirely outside of the Coast Guard, DHS or DOD lifelines. RAND is an independent, non-profit corporation and will not release any information that could be used to identify any specific individual. Your individual responses are confidential.
The Commandant and I are laser focused on understanding and improving relationships, professionalism and personal safety within the Coast Guard workplace. This survey will provide us with the raw, unvarnished feedback we need to make the best informed decisions about our workplace and our climate.
Please take the time to assist all of us in making the Coast Guard an inclusive and world-class workplace.
Vice Adm. Peter V. Neffenger
