Growing a Healthy Library Culture (PCI Webinar) Online
The Massachusetts Library System is pleased to announce that we have contracted with PCI Webinars to provide our members with access to their live webinars. These webinars are free to MLS members who register through our calendar. Because we are working with an outside vendor, it is important that you cancel your registration in the event that you are unable to attend the live webinar. A recording of the webinar will be available on the PCI Webinars Niche Academy website about a week after the live webinar. If you have any issues registering or signing into the PCI Webinars Niche Academy website, please let us know. Please do not contact PCI Webinars or Niche Academy directly about their live webinars or webinar recordings.
Culture is all around us - it's the water for the fish!
In 2022, library science graduates looking for jobs ranked a positive, healthy workplace culture as being an even more important attribute than salary. A toxic workplace culture can impact mental health, decrease productivity, and lead good employees to work elsewhere. If you haven't looked at your organizational culture recently, it may be time for a refresh.
Join Library Director Jeannie Dilger for a look at what culture is, how to get staff involved in creating or revising your culture statement, and ways to implement your culture throughout the library. Learn how to shape your library's culture for a positive workplace environment.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Differentiate between mission, vision, and values
- Identify hidden and stated values that already exist in an organization
- Develop a culture or values statement in your organization
- Keep the values alive by incorporating them into hiring, evaluations, and the daily work of the library
