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
