Employees across the nation are completing the Postal Pulse survey, although USPS leaders want to see the numbers rise as the Nov. 4 deadline approaches.
The latest participation rates show the national leader is Caribbean District, where 41 percent of employees have completed the survey.
Albany (35 percent) ranks second among the districts, followed by a four-way tie for third among Central Plains, Dakotas, Greater Michigan and Northern New England (32 percent each).
The areas with the highest participation rates are Great Lakes (27.29 percent), Northeast (23.53 percent) and Eastern (22.88 percent).
“Every employee’s opinion matters, so we want every Postal Service employee to take this survey,” said Employee Engagement Executive Director Kelvin Williams. “Tell us what you’re thinking so we can continue improving our organization.”
The survey has 13 questions and takes about 5 minutes to complete.
Gallup, the organization that conducts the Postal Pulse, began administering the survey Oct. 4.
Bargaining employees are receiving the survey at their home and workplaces, while non-bargaining employees received an email that allows them to complete the survey online.
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.
