Communications award. The Postal Service’s Eastern Area has been honored for its internal communications efforts.
The area’s Corporate Communications team was recently named a recipient of a Bulldog PR Award for its work to educate employees about dog bite prevention, safe driving and other matters.
The dog bite campaign included a holographic-style mailer that features an image of a snarling dog that turns friendly when the card is tilted.
The team will receive a gold award, the highest level in the internal communications category.
The awards are given by Bulldog Reporter, a communications trade publication.
