Pitney Bowes on The Internship Show

Nicole heads the campus strategy at Pitney Bowes and primarily focuses on campus engagement and alignment with Pitney Bowes’ strategic business priorities. As part of her role, she works in conjunction with the recruitment team and helps to manage the on-boarding lifecycle for campus hires. The goal and purpose of her role is to increase the quality and diversity of Pitney’s long-term hiring pipeline while expanding Pitney Bowes’ brand on campus.

Employees and retirees mentor entrepreneurs

For many years, the Pitney Bowes Foundation has supported SCORE, a national organization dedicated to entrepreneurial education and the formation, growth, and success of small businesses. Our relationship with the SCORE Fairfield County chapter is impressive, especially given that numerous Pitney Bowes retirees have been involved in their work to provides top quality business mentoring and education to all, irrespective of ethnicity, race, gender, and socioeconomic status. Last year, they provided more than 4,500 client mentoring sessions and produced 180 education and workshop programs with more than 5,000 attendees.

Celebrating Us: Voices of LGBTQ+ Youth Webinar

To celebrate Pride Month, The Governor’s Prevention Partnership will host a webinar to elevate the voices of the LGBTQ+ community. Youth will discuss how their experiences have shaped their respective identities, strengthened their resilience, and people in their lives who supported them. This webinar will feature a panel discussion featuring a group of 4 young people with lived experience, and Rep. Jeff Currey (D) – East Hartford.

Standing in solidarity

Last week, a landmark decision was handed down from the US Supreme Court making workplace discrimination against
LGBTQ+ people illegal. It was a joyous moment – especially during Pride Month – but also one of relief for many who have been fighting for basic civil liberties for years. Many vulnerable groups share a sense of community that’s been forged by years of advocating for equal rights (including housing, employment and representation) and seeing their basic civil liberties continually challenged.

To The Rescue

In March, New York became the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak, and while many businesses shut down, essential service providers Broadridge and Pitney Bowes, remained open. As with many warehouses, Broadridge Financial was soon severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. “All of this happened during their busiest mailing time of the year” explained Tom Gallego, Major Account Manager. “To say that they needed their Pitney Bowes systems to be fully operational during multiple work shifts is an understatement.”

Everyone is invited

Living in a world where nothing feels quite the same is an opportunity to look at everything through a new lens. Whether or not you find yourself represented among the letters of the LGBTQ+ community, all are welcome to participate in Pride Month. No one needs an invitation or a designation to join this month-long recognition of the LGBTQ+ community and the PB team members who are part of that community. Anyone can be an ally.

Honoring Pride Month 2020

The Pitney Bowes LGBTQ+ Advisory Council plays a central role in supporting the company’s longstanding commitment to Diversity & Inclusion. It aims to foster LGBTQ+ inclusivity, raise visibility and generate awareness around LGBTQ+ matters through meaningful dialogue and action.

The Importance of being Human

By embracing the humanity of our diverse workforce here at Pitney Bowes, we have also learned to celebrate our differences. The character Piglet from the children’s story Winnie the Pooh observed, “It’s the things that make me different, that make me, me.” Pitney Bowes strives to make this a place where all voices are valued, and we all can grow and make meaningful contributions to our success. We want everyone to feel that they belong and know that they are safe to bring their whole self to work.

The Future of Work

On May 13th, Pitney Bowes Women’s Inclusion Network (PBWIN), a network open to employees of all genders, held a webinar on “The Future of Work.” Hundreds of Pitney Bowes employees joined to hear guest speaker, Lauren Pasquarella Daley, Ph.D., Senior Director of Women and the Future of Work at Catalyst.
