    You’re a library worker. You’re already helping those in your community find health information. As a library worker, what are you doing to manage your own well-being? Individual and community well-being are inherently connected. Thus, it is critical that workplaces be an area of wellness for their employees. Join us to discover ways to improve your own personal well-being and create a healthy workplace.  If you are a supervisor, how are you helping to ensure your staff stays healthy (physically, emotionally, etc.)? We will also discuss ways to increase overall wellness for all staff in libraries so that we have happy, healthy, and safe work environments.

    In this 2-week, 4-CE class participants will explore the aspects of a healthy workplace including physical, mental, and emotional components. During the first week, we will look at the evidence on the benefits of having a healthy working environment that matters to you, to the library, and to your community. We will discuss what does and does not make a healthy working environment. During the second week, participants will learn about and explore changes they can make at an individual level to improve workplace health and wellness. We will also discuss changes that could and should be made at the team and organizational levels to improve workplace health and wellness for everyone.

    This course is asynchronous, there are no set hours to be online each week.
