Workplace Wellness Survey Closing Soon

Don’t miss your opportunity to share your workplace wellness experiences! The online Workplace Wellness Survey will close February 28, 2010.

The survey, sponsored by the American Library Association-Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA) and the ALA Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR), provides an important opportunity for library employees to share information about the availability of, and employee participation in, work/life options in libraries around the nation. The results of this survey will be reported in forthcoming issues of Library Worklife.

This survey continues the work of the 2007–2008 Library Workplace Wellness online survey. Over 2,500 library employees responded, and Library Worklife published the results in four articles (available on the ALA-APA website). No library or names will be identified unless we receive your written permission.

ALA-APA advocates growth, advancement and opportunity for all library employees.
