Engagement statistics. The Postal Service is continuing to share research that underscores the importance of employee engagement.
One of the latest statistics shows that employees who strongly believe their opinions count are 58 times more likely to be engaged.
USPS recently highlighted other statistics that illustrate how engaged employees are more likely to be safer on the job.
The findings are based on data from Gallup, the organization that conducts the Postal Pulse employee survey.
