Have you made plans to go to the MLA ‘09 Annual Meeting in Honolulu this year? In addition to sun, surf, sand, and scientific sessions, be sure you make time to attend this year’s CAPHIS program!
The Healthy Library: Creating a Culture of Wellness
Tuesday, May 19 from 1:00pm - 2:30pm
Imagine your library as a workplace environment with many happy, productive and resilient employees with low absenteeism rates. Envision the enthusiasm of staff members who are enjoying the benefits of a positive, healthy workplace culture. Picture a low-cost program that offers a huge return on investment including excellent employee retention and lower healthcare costs. It sounds wonderful, but what are the considerations and steps to achieve such a scenario?
Please join us as several panelists share their experiences and offer insight into integrating healthy behaviors into the workplace: their vision, approach, outcomes and future plans. In addition, a short presentation will provide guidelines, practical steps and resources to help you get your healthy workplace program up and running!
