    Culture Enhancements

    Champion enhancements to our work environment that support inclusive staff engagement, respectful behaviors, and learning opportunities that are the foundation for safe, secure, compliant, and quality performance of our missions.

    Initiatives

    1. Evolve to a Lab-wide culture of teaming and collaborative behaviors based on common values.
    2. Measure and document annually the Laboratory culture maturity with a focus on sustained improvement in three areas:
      1. Leadership, where the leadership team through the responsible line managers (RLMs), demonstrates and models a commitment to transform culture.
      2. Employee Engagement, with shared and integrated improvement actions across LANL, leveraging the Institutional Worker Environment, Safety, and Security Team (IWESST), WESST, Voluntary Protection Program, and Safety and Security Improvement Program.
      3. Organizational Learning, with demonstrated excellence in safety, security, quality, compliance, and behaviors (i.e., how we do our work is as important as what we do)
    3. Increase focus on disciplined operations by learning from upsets in order to reduce mission and operational impacts
