USPS seeks engagement award nominees

Lloyd Keast, Northern New England District’s senior Post Office operations manager, left, and Jason Johnson, Suncoast District’s sales manager, received the National Engagement Leader of the Year Award in 2020.

The Postal Service is inviting employees to submit nominations for the annual Engagement Leader of the Year Awards.

The awards honor leaders who are involved, enthusiastic and committed to improving their workplace environments.

Leaders — such as Postmasters, supervisors and managers — will be recognized at all levels of the organization, culminating with national honorees.

Nominees must be Executive and Administrative Schedule or Postal Career Executive Service who have employees who report to them.

Other criteria:

• At least half of the employees who report to each nominee must have participated in last year’s Postal Pulse survey.

• The nominee’s team must have a “grand mean” average of 4 or better in the survey. The grand mean refers to the average of the survey questions, which ask employees to assess their workplace engagement levels on a scale of 1 to 5.

• All nominees must have completed the Creating an Engaging Workplace training course before Sept. 30, 2020.

The deadline to submit nominations is Feb. 28. The Employee Engagement Blue and LiteBlue pages have the nomination form and additional information.
