Now’s the time

Managers and supervisors should encourage their employees to take the Postal Pulse survey before the March 11 deadline, USPS leaders say.

“We want to ensure that every postal employee has an opportunity to make their voice heard — and that truly means everyone,” said Employee Engagement Executive Director Kelvin Williams. “If your employees haven’t taken the survey, please encourage them to complete it today.”

The survey, which began Feb. 16, allows employees to share observations about their workplace environments. This feedback helps postal leaders make changes and improvements.

The survey has 13 questions and takes about 3-5 minutes to complete. USPS has provided managers with stand-up talks to encourage employees to participate, along with a flier that can be posted in workplaces.

Robert Hickok, acting supervisor at the Detached Mail Entry Unit in Indianapolis, is encouraging employees in his unit to participate.

“It’s an opportunity to have our voices heard,” Hickok said. “By taking a few minutes to fill out the survey, I believe I have helped with the enhancement of my workplace experience.”

The Postal Pulse page has more information, including a link where employees with access to Blue can take the survey online if they haven’t already done so.
