Creating a Culture of Professional Engagement

By: Eileen Theodore Shusta   Scott Seaman  

The Libraries completed strategic planning in 2012, using an approach similar to the Balanced Scorecard. One strategic priority was to "Promote a culture of professional development among all staff." One initiative was to create an internal mechanism for professional engagement and career ladders. The presentation will focus on a multi-factored assessment of the impact on the professional library staff from the changes implemented, and if that resulted in a change in culture.
