Diversity initiatives

Valuing diversity: good for business, good for you

At the United States Postal Service, diversity means building an inclusive environment that respects the uniqueness of every individual and encourages the contributions of people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.

Our workforce is one of the most diverse in the America. We also serve the most diverse customers on the face of the earth.

Our commitment to diversity is unwavering. The United States Postal Service has been recognized for its commitment to creating an inclusive work environment. We have been ranked among the “50 Best Companies for Minorities” by Fortune magazine.

Positive, significant correlations exist between diversity, employee satisfaction, and customer satisfaction. Because diversity affects our return on investment and because it is the “right thing to do,” diversity will continue to be valued and recognized as key to our success in serving every community in America.

We are committed to our relationships with small, minority- and woman-owned businesses (SMWOBs). Through continuous improvement, we work to ensure opportunities for all suppliers that provide the value-added products and services we need to increase customer satisfaction and decrease overall cost.
