The culture team will educate the workforce on what the Denison Survey is all about by hanging posters around the workplace and providing videos and power point slides to help communicate on how to read and understand the Denison Survey, expressing how it truly is anonymous.

The team will also be emphasis the importance of helpful comments that fully express their thoughts, whether it be positive or negative, to employees.

The culture team worked with Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services Director Mike Cannon to voice the importance of the Denison Survey.

The team will explain the changes that have happened due to the results of past surveys taken to associates and emphasizing to employees that everyone’s input at this time is at the same level across the agency, no matter what their grade is. It is like voting and their vote matters.
