Postal Pulse Survey participation rate climbs

November 29, 2016

More than 292,000 employees participated in the most recent Postal Pulse survey, new data show.

This means about 49 percent of the USPS workforce completed the survey, which was administered from Oct. 4-Nov. 4.

The participation rate is up from the previous survey, which was completed by 30 percent of employees in February and March.

“We made significant progress in our response rate,” said Employee Engagement Executive Director Kelvin Williams. “We thank everyone who shared their opinions and made their voice heard.”

USPS will share the survey results when they become available in mid-December.

By early January, managers and supervisors will share the results during state-of-the-team conversations with employees.

Action plans will follow to help each team improve engagement.

Williams also reminds employees that the Postal Pulse isn’t the only method to share their feedback.

USPS also offers an employee engagement comment box in the upper left hand corner of the LiteBlue home page.

Additionally, employees can email comments to or call 844-303-6424 to record their feedback.

All feedback is received by the employee engagement team, which considers the suggestions and seeks ways to enact them when appropriate.

The Employee Engagement LiteBlue site has more information.

But nothing changes no matter what you say on them.

Christopher Paradise

That’s why I trash mine.

Amanda Naef

I usually do. Not sure if anyone actually reads them, but I added all kinds of extra on it about poor management and how we have a new sup who has 3 counts of sexual harassment on him from previous offices. It was pretty nasty. And I still haven’t got paid for it now that I think about it and seeing this post.

The only change is that this is used against the union ! Trash them they don’t help carriers in any way!

Amanda Naef

How is it used against the union when it ask only about your co workers and management?

Mark Pearl

I don’t think anyone in our office did it

Jon Webster

And best I could tell it was the same questions as last time. What’s that saying about doing the same thing over & over yet expecting different results? 🙂

Greg Bilhimer

No, I’m sure they’ve figured out a way to rig it this year.
