The Postal Service has created an award to honor leaders who are involved, enthusiastic and committed to improving their workplace environments.
The Engagement Leader of the Year Awards will be given at the district, area and headquarters levels, culminating with a final honoree who will receive a national award in January.
“We have engaged leaders throughout the organization who inspire employees to bring their best to work each and every day,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Jeff Williamson. “It’s time we have a national award to recognize them for all they do.”
Nominees must be Executive Administrative Schedule (EAS) or Postal Career Executive Services (PCES) employees in leadership positions and have employees who report directly to them.
The awards will be given in three rounds, beginning with 67 district-selected awardees. During the second round, seven area and 22 headquarters awardees will be chosen, followed by a third round of 10 finalists selected by the Executive Leadership Team.
From these 10 finalists, a single winner will be chosen for the National Engagement Leader of the Year Award.
The Employee Engagement site on LiteBlue has additional guidelines and an online form to submit nominations, which are due Aug. 1.
