Gone Platinum

Platinum PR Awards. The Postal Service’s Corporate Communications department was honored twice last week during the Platinum PR Awards competition.

The 2018 Annual Sustainability Report was the winner in the annual report category, while the department’s Social Business Intelligence program won the social listening award, which honors excellence in the use of social media.

Additionally, Corporate Communications received honorable mentions in the crisis management category (for the department’s work during natural disasters); the public affairs category (for a dog bite prevention awareness campaign); and the social good category (for the Annual Sustainability Report).

The annual competition is organized by PR News, a trade publication for public relations professionals.

The awards’ site has an overview of all winners, profiles of the Annual Sustainability Report and the Social Business Intelligence program, and a list of each category’s honorable mentions.

Postal Bulletin. The Postal Bulletin’s Sept. 25 issue features a preview of Fire Prevention Week, which will be observed from Oct. 6-12.

The latest updates to policies, procedures and forms are also included.
