Studies show that employee engagement correlates with increased productivity and service, job satisfaction and retention of top talent. How are libraries engaging their employees and cultivating supportive staff environments in ways that go beyond team building activities at staff or inservice days?

Hear from a library who redesigned their culture along with their building, a library with an ongoing training program for staff that encourages personal and professional growth, libraries that run self-care and wellness activities for their staffs throughout the year, a library that has been among Chicago Tribune’s Top 100 workplaces 4 years in a row, and more!

Panelists will share examples of staff engagement initiatives from their libraries, followed by the chance to discuss in small groups. Participants will leave with ideas to bring back to their teams or managers.
