The Postal Service’s Race for a $Billion campaign has generated more than $531 million so far, thanks to the efforts of employees such as Bruce Morphis.
The Canton, TX, Postmaster recently submitted a lead through the Business Connect program that resulted in $574,200 in new estimated annualized revenue.
“It’s everyone’s responsibility to look for new revenue,” said Morphis. “I enjoy talking to the customers and letting them know how USPS can help them grow their business.”
The Race for a $Billion initiative, which began last fall, aims to raise $1 billion through employee-provided sales leads before the fiscal year ends Sept. 30.
“We need everyone out there looking for new revenue, especially now when businesses are suffering,” said Mary Anderson, small-business engagement director at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC. “We can be there to help them remain viable during the crisis and be the help they need to come back strong after it’s over.”
In addition to the Business Connect program, employees can submit leads through the Clerks Care, Customer Connect, Mail Handlers, Rural Reach and Submit a Lead programs.
