Abstract : This study examined the degree to which Naval Hospital, Jacksonville, Florida, as an organizational entity, engenders a work environment in which civilian employees are reasonably satisfied, informed, utilized, and included in command operations and functions. Civilian staff members are often key to providing some measure of stability and 'corporate memory' to a military medical facility with its largely transient core of military staff members. Although positive steps have been implemented over the past two years at the command to improve the work environment for all staff, this study has shown that there are still additional efforts needed. The goal should be continuous improvement--in the opportunities available for civilian employees, their involvement in the organization, recognition of their accomplishments, and concern for their unique needs in contrast to the military staff.
