Cost: Included with full conference registration.
Like many libraries, Pikes Peak Library District has changed significantly over the past few years. Changes in expectations--both internal and external, technology, and society have radically altered the nature of what libraries do and how we do it. Learn how we designed and implemented a comprehensive staffing and compensation study that will allow us to escape the staffing models of the past and better align our efforts with the needs of our community while creating an environment of transparent communication, staff engagement, and continual learning.
In an interactive manner, we will speak from the roles of a CEO new to an organization, Chief Human Resources Officer, and Consultant, linking our perspectives into a narrative that tells a story of a successful library system developing a new service model and embracing the full diversity of staff voices to make it a reality. We will engage the audience through encouraging them to share their experiences and best practices so those in attendance can learn from each other as well as the presenters.
