It’s our business to create more business!

A reader sent me a note with a pretty interesting handout she created for her employees:

"We ALL are stakeholders in this wonderful company we work for called USPS. With this being said, we can generate some excitement and form partnerships among our employees by using a fun and informative postcard, promoting the Submit-a-Lead Program. Getting back to basics with building and promoting what we do is what we need to start doing for the betterment of USPS."

And check out this flyer. It's got my image on it with a catchy little phrase, "Mind Your Business"

Idea and concept courtesy of the Gulfport, MS, Plant Manager

This is another reason for 6 day delivery. We cannot find "leads" from the carrier craft if they are not working on Saturdays.

The post office is meant to be a goverment service for all Americans not a business.

I believe that we are here to provide a service and to make sure our customers know about our products and services. I don't believe that we are here to "drum up business", that's the job our our retail/marketing department. They did a great job with the TV ads! Until we are free to truely operate as a business, I will continue to provide the servcies.

Service is our number one committment but without customers there is no one to give service. This means we all need to do what we can to keep our customers and generate more business. I don't have the answer on the easiest way to do that but giving leads when we see them sure seems reasonable.

It's all well and good to support the USPS at all levels necessary. In turn, the USPS should support its employees by cutting wastely expenditures and better negoiation on products and services purchased by the service. EBuy products are not very reasonable, and there are plenty of cuts that can be made in upper management. How many VP are there? The USPS has issued letters to many employees who are hurt with prospective dates for their departure form the Service. They have also changes starting times from 11:00pm to 12:00am, to eliminate paying employees premium pay on weekends. The USPS needs to reevaluate its new practices towards its employees.
