The pandemic has caused a lot of businesses to struggle with having enough employees available to get the job done, and the Postal Service is no exception. As more and more job vacancies go unfilled, people looking for jobs have more choices about where to work. Which raises the question, how does the Postal Service stack up as an employer?
When your priorities include maintaining the security of the mail, you need to ensure that not just your employees, but also your contractors can be trusted. After all, the Postal Service engages thousands of contractors to help its workforce move the mail in various ways. One of which is handling mail at its Surface Transfer Centers (STC).
For any business, customer service is important. It improves the brand image, keeps customers loyal, and provides insights into the customer experience. In the past, customer service operations for a major corporation would involve thousands of service agents to handle calls — from routine problems to more complex ones. Technology has changed customer service, allowing automated systems to handle routine inquiries 24 hours a day without requiring an agent.
