Ethics training. The USPS Ethics Office is offering a refresher course covering federal ethical conduct laws.

The session will provide an overview of ethics laws that apply to all federal employees. USPS will offer the session through WebEx five times from Sept. 13-29.

The training is available to employees who are Executive and Administration Schedule level 18 and above. Employees who don’t regularly receive ethics training are encouraged to participate, along with employees who are required to file financial disclosure information each year.

“Being familiar with ethics laws helps us support the Postal Service’s mission with honesty, integrity and impartiality in the spirit of service to others,” said Associate General Counsel and Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer Michael Elston.

The Ethics Blue page has more information, including a schedule of the sessions.

Speak up. The Postal Bulletin’s latest edition encourages employees to participate in the Postal Pulse survey.

Available through Sept. 15, the 5-minute survey measures employee engagement. The feedback is also used to improve USPS workplaces.
