Last month, Omnikal, a social media and networking organization, awarded the United States Postal Service (USPS) as the “top government agency for Multicultural Business Opportunities.”  This is the 17th time USPS has won the award based on its promotion of inclusion and support for small businesses throughout the country.  “The award honors the Postal Service’s leadership among the 25 top-ranked government agencies, known as the Omni50.”

This year’s award recipients “were determined based on Omnikal member responses to questions about the quality of business initiatives implemented to include companies led by women and minorities.”  Working with government organizations can sometimes be challenging but the USPS does the best job in reaching out to and connecting diverse businesses with contract opportunities to support their organizations.

The Postal Service’s efforts to engage with multicultural businesses and entrepreneurs include reaching out to register small businesses, hosting workshops, facilitating one-on-one business meetings, and posting materials online to guide business owners in marketing their supplies and services.
