PORTSMOUTH, Va. -- There is a misconception that surveys can be just a check in the box and that little results from them, including the annual Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI) Organization Climate Survey (DEOCS). This survey assesses 19 factors that can impact an organization’s climate and ability to successfully achieve its mission based on feedback from civilian employees and military members.

One of the departments that has taken DEOCS feedback to heart is Norfolk Naval Shipyard’s (NNSY) Radiological Controls Department (Code 105). "From the DEOCS, as management we recognized that our employees are interested in their development and looking for opportunities available to them that they may not be aware of," said Radiological Controls Deputy Director Support Operations and Shadow Program Coordinator Chessie Bray. "The end result is we instituted the shadowing program for Code 105 personnel which gives our people a chance to be personally mentored by our department head, division heads and managers."

Approximately once a quarter, Code 105 personnel can volunteer to a shadow senior leadership for a day. The shadow can choose their own mentor or one can be assigned to them. For one day, the shadow spends the day with a mentor to experience what goes on outside their day-to-day work area.

NNSY’s Strategic Framework has four pillars, one of which is People Development. It is being looked into how to open the shadow program to all shipyard employees where they can shadow leadership both in and out of their department, giving an opportunity to see and learn other aspects of the shipyard.
