Postal Uniform Guidelines handbook

The new guidebook for employee uniforms is coming to a mailbox near you.

USPS is mailing Postal Uniform Guidelines to Post Offices across the nation. Each office will receive two copies of the book — one for delivery employees and one for retail employees.

The organization wants managers and supervisors to use the book as a visual tool to help ensure employees wear their uniforms properly. The guidelines are part of the Postal Service’s broader efforts to promote and protect its brand and provide customers with excellent experiences, a core strategy.

The 21-page book features head-to-toe color photographs of actual uniformed employees, including letter carriers, retail associates and motor vehicle operators.

The hard copy version of the book is spiral-bound for easy reference. Post Offices should receive the books during the week of Dec. 10.

The guidebook, which debuted in October, is also available in a digital format on the Postal Communicator’s Toolbox, a Blue site.
