Dear Colleagues, Since coming into office, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has emphasized the importance of holding senior managers accountable for their leadership and the management of their staff, departments or missions. To this end, staff unions of the UN Secretariat have jointly developed a survey which we invite you all to participate in. It gives you an opportunity to rate your organization on the following aspects: Job satisfaction Career development Quality of supervision Leadership Ethics and organizational culture Empowerment Internal communication Work-life balance.
