Employee recognition. The employees who recently had lunch with Postmaster General Louis DeJoy after receiving the top prize in the USPS Sustainability Excellence Awards competition have received a memento of the experience.
DeJoy has mailed each participant a signed group photo from the lunch to thank them for their work.
The employees were honored with the award after working together to shut down three contract routes and consolidate the loads onto other routes. Their effort removed 221,889 annual miles from the USPS network and saved the organization 34,000 gallons of diesel a year.
The USPS Sustainability Excellence Awards honor standout efforts to reduce the organization’s environmental footprint. The awards’ Blue page has more information.
