Your opinion counts

Would you say that your work is stimulating? How do you feel about your working environment and working relationships? Are you proud to be part of this Organization?

To find the answers to these questions, the Human Resources Department (HR) will be launching, for the first time, a staff member survey. Via an on-line questionnaire, you will have the opportunity to express your opinions about how you see your work, your expectations and your commitment to the Organization.

This will promote dialogue at a turning point in CERN’s history with the start-up of the LHC.

An HR steering group is now working on the preparation of this survey. A partnership is being developed with a university, which will play an active role in drawing up the questionnaire and will then carry out a confidential and objective analysis of your replies.

Your participation will help the Management, in collaboration with HR, to identify action plans in line with the Organization’s aspirations and the needs of the personnel, on whose competence and dedication CERN’s success is based.

The questionnaire will be sent to you early in 2009 and we expect to be able to share the results of the survey during the summer.

Head, Human Resources Department
