"For over 14 years, International Survey Research (ISR) has been working with the NRC [Nuclear Regulatory Commission] to assess their safety culture and climate as well as other aspects of employee experience such as engagement. ISR conducted NRC's survey in 1998, 2002, 2005, and 2009. In 2007, Towers Perrin acquired ISR and subsequently formed Towers Watson after a later merger. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Office of the Inspector General (OIG) engaged Towers Watson (formerly ISR) to conduct the 2012 Safety Culture and Climate Survey of all full-time and permanent part-time agency employees. The NRC OIG conducted the Safety Culture and Climate Survey for approximately 3,755 employees in the fall of 2012. Through this research initiative, the NRC OIG's goals were to: 1) Measure NRC's safety culture and climate to identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement. 2) Understand the Key Drivers of Engagement (leverage points for improving engagement). 3) Compare the results of this survey against the survey results that OIG reported previously. 4) Provide, where practical, benchmarks for the findings against other similar organizations and highperforming companies."
