Human Resources for Libraries

Staffing typically represents the largest portion of a library’s budget. This session will focus on short-term and long-term budget planning for staffing costs, and touch on approaches to setting compensation and developing benefits packages. It will also cover important details about job descriptions and organizational charts. Additional topics include interviewing skills and employee development.

Budgeting for Staffing
Staffing typically represents the largest portion of a library’s budget. This session will focus on short-term and long-term budget planning for staffing costs, and touch on approaches to setting compensation and developing benefits packages.
Larry Neal, Clinton-Macomb Public Library

10:00 – 11:00 a.m.
What Story Does an Organizational Chart and Job Descriptions Tell About a Library?
Your library's org chart exists even if it's not written down, and it tells a story. Job descriptions should reflect this story, but often they do not. We will look at samples of both and discuss how well they work, or not. This workshop should work for you, so bring your own samples and questions. We can all discuss them together.
Josie Parker, Ann Arbor District Library

Break

Coaching & Employee Development
