Safety and service

PMG updates employees in latest video

In a new “Business Focus” video, PMG Megan J. Brennan thanks employees for making safety “a core value for the Postal Service.”

She praises employees for working safely throughout several instances of bad weather that affected operations this winter.

“Please continue to practice safe work habits,” the PMG says.

Brennan also discusses the first-quarter (Oct. 1-Dec. 31, 2016) financial results and notes USPS delivered 805 million packages during the holidays, a 15 percent increase from one year earlier.

“We’re keeping our value proposition strong in the package business,” she says.

However, the PMG also notes competition in the marketplace is increasing.

To better compete for business in all categories, the organization is making strategic investments in processing, transportation and productivity.

“We have to continually improve operating efficiencies,” she says.

Other topics addressed during the 5-minute video include recent service improvements and workforce development programs, including the new-employee orientation initiative and carrier training academies.

The video concludes with an overview of the postal reform bill recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives and a preview of upcoming stamps.
