USPS will conduct its next Postal Pulse employee survey from Tuesday, May 22-Friday, June 22.
The survey was slated to begin a few weeks earlier, but the Postal Service moved the dates to a period when employees are more likely to have time to participate.
“May is a busy time for our employees, especially those involved with the Stamp Out Hunger food drive and the National Postal Forum,” said Employee Engagement Executive Director Kelvin Williams. “By adjusting the dates, we want to ensure employees have more opportunities to make their voices heard.”
The Postal Pulse measures engagement — employees’ involvement, enthusiasm and commitment to their work. USPS uses the feedback to improve its workplaces.
The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete.
Beginning this year, the survey will feature a comment box that employees can use to offer feedback in their own words.
Bargaining employees receive the survey at home and at work, while non-bargaining employees can complete the survey via email on a secure site run by Gallup, the organization that conducts the Postal Pulse.
Additionally, all employees can take the survey on LiteBlue.
Although the Postal Service provides employees with multiple options to complete the survey, only the first survey received by Gallup for each employee is counted. Gallup doesn’t share individual employees’ responses with USPS.
