      Managing HR Webinar Series: Why HR Matters to Libraries

      Apr 07, 2017 - (10:00 AM - 11:00 AM)
      For all libraries, regardless of the number of employees, personnel administration is critical to the success of the institution and the services provided to citizens. Your employees are the first line of service to residents and library users: they put a face on yet another form of local government. Thus, managing employees in a fair and uniform way is critical to their performance and the quality of service they provide.
