Season of opportunities

Employee leads sought during holidays

If you see a small business using another shipper this holiday season, let USPS know.

Sales opportunities never take a holiday — and neither does the need to generate new revenue for the Postal Service.

This is why the organization is encouraging employees to keep an eye out for sales leads during the holiday season.

If you see a retailer who’s using another shipper — or if you encounter a business that’s seeking new ways to advertise its products and services — let USPS know.

The Postal Service offers several programs that allow employees to submit leads:

  • Customer Connect (for letter carriers)
  • Rural Reach (for rural carriers)
  • Clerks Care (for retail associates and distribution clerks)
  • Mail Handlers (for plant employees)
  • Submit a Lead (for everyone else, including Executive and Administrative Schedule employees)

The Small Business and Lead Generation Programs Blue page has more information about each program, including instructions on participating.

During the previous fiscal year, employees submitted more than 116,000 sales leads, generating more than $990 million in estimated annualized revenue for the organization.

USPS now aims to generate $1 billion in estimated annualized revenue through employee leads before the current fiscal year ends Sept. 30, 2020.
