Pride and joy

Western New York District employees show their postal pride at a recent meeting.

Western New York District is using the #PostalProud movement to encourage employee involvement.

The district distributes #PostalProud T-shirts at meetings, including ceremonies where employees are honored for safety achievements and heroic acts.

“Our employees demonstrate their postal pride in many ways. It’s wonderful to be able to identify and acknowledge the great things employees do in service to our organization and our customers,” said District Manager James Lentz.

He encourages other districts to promote #PostalProud whenever they can.

“The Postal Service provides some great tools to get the discussion rolling on what our employees need and which direction we must go to be successful as a team,” Lentz said.

#PostalProud is an ongoing effort to promote core USPS principles. The Postal Service promotes the initiative through workplace postersvideos and other communications.
