Workplace and work force management

Recruitment, training and development

Recently, recruitment of new employees has been limited by hiring freezes imposed as mail volume and workload has declined. However, we continue to selectively recruit employees for highly specialized technical and professional positions.

Carefully targeted training, development and succession planning programs also have continued despite our extreme financial restraints. The Postal Service maintains one of the largest learning management systems in the nation, blending classroom, online and on-the-job programs.
