USPS Human Resources.
The United States Postal Service (USPS) is one of the largest employers in the United States, with well over 600,000 employees. This means that the company’s human resources department is responsible for managing employee services for a huge number of people all across the country.
One of the ways this responsibility has been optimised is through the LiteBlue online employee portal, which includes a ‘My HR’ section, serving as the main human resources website. However, there are also some topics where it may be necessary to contact a human resources specialist at the HR Shared Service Center (HRSSC).
Using the US Postal Services HR Website.
The USPS Human Resources website can be found at: https://liteblue.usps.gov/humanresources/home.shtml
It offers a range of different HR-related services for USPS employees, which are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This includes options to update personal information, find information about your career, and access details about your pay and the various employee benefits available to you.
Upon accessing the HR website, you will see the following options:
- – Change My Address:
- – Add/Change Beneficiary
- – Apply for a Job
- – Learn About EAP
- – See TSP Return Rates
- – Learn About Family Leave
- – Access ePayroll
- – Access eOPF
With this in mind, if your HR-related needs are covered by these options, the online platform is likely to be the best and most convenient option and you may not need to contact a HR specialist. To gain access to LiteBlue itself, you will require your Employee ID (found on your pay slips) and your self-service password.
