Teamwork award. The Postal Service recently recognized the team of employees who oversaw communications for last year’s peak delivery season.

The team managed the USPS Holiday Newsroom site and produced news releases, media advisories, newsletter articles and other materials that helped inform journalists, employees and others about the organization’s peak season efforts.

USPS presented the team with the first Engagement Cross-Functional Team Award, which recognizes groups “who are involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to creating an engaging workplace in conjunction with improving postal operations.”

The presentation took place last week at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC.
