Pulse check

Great Lakes Area Network Operations Analyst Verneitha McGee-Bland recently completed her Postal Pulse survey.

Employees have two more weeks to complete the latest Postal Pulse, the twice-a-year survey that USPS uses to help improve its workplaces.

“The Postal Pulse survey is an opportunity for us to learn more about what our employees think of their workplace environment,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Jeffrey Williamson. “We want to engage and empower all employees so that we continue to deliver exceptional customer service.”

The survey has 13 questions and takes about 5 minutes to complete. The deadline is Nov. 4.

Bargaining employees received the survey at their home and workplaces, while non-bargaining employees received an email that allows them to complete the survey on a secure site run by Gallup, the organization that conducts the Postal Pulse.

Additionally, all employees can take the survey on LiteBlue.

Although USPS is providing employees multiple options to complete the survey, only the first survey received by Gallup for each employee will be counted. Gallup doesn’t share individual employees’ responses with the Postal Service.

Verneitha McGee-Bland, a network operations analyst in Great Lakes Area, recently completed her survey.

“The updated questions are easier to answer without overthinking, and taking the survey is quick and convenient,” she said.
