The Postal Service will spotlight its lead-sharing program for retail associates and machine and distribution clerks during Clerks Care Week, which is March 9-13.
USPS districts across the country will hold events during the week to thank associates and clerks for contributing to the program, which has generated more than $982 million in estimated annualized revenue since it began in 2013.
“During Clerks Care Week, we’ll show clerks and retail associates how important they have been — and continue to be — to the success of our organization and encourage them to continue to find and submit leads for our sales team,” said Mary Anderson, small-business engagement director at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC.
This year, Clerks Care Week is part of Race for a $Billion, the Postal Service’s campaign to raise $1 billion in estimated annualized revenue through sales leads from employees.
More than $398 million has been raised since the fiscal year began in October, including almost $120 million through Clerks Care.
May Quach, a retail associate in Glendale, CA, was recently honored for finding a lead that resulted in more $82,000 in revenue for the Postal Service.
Since 2014, Quach has submitted 16 leads — three of them totaling more than $170,000 in revenue — through Clerks Care.
“I love my job because I love to help people,” Quach said. “But I know that my job doesn’t end there. I also want to help the Postal Service. I encourage all employees to submit leads because this helps generate revenue for USPS.”
