Work Climate Survey
The Work Climate Survey assesses the culture's capacity to support individual, group and organizational growth. Work climate is the cultural equivalent of yeast in bread making. A sense of community, a shared vision and a positive outlook hold groups and organizations together. These qualities also help the culture and its members to grow. Work climate helps determine morale, job stress, recruitment, turnover, organizational learning, teamwork, employee health and productivity. In addition, workplace diversity and work/life balance goals are more easily reached with a healthy work climate.
