On-Demand Webinar: The Search For Meaningful Work: Overcoming Low Morale, Quiet Quitting, and Dead End Jobs
This presentation centers on
creating a meaningful work life while also exploring how to break free
from unfavorable elements. Low morale, quiet quitting, and dead end jobs
refer to the subtle and gradual disengagement of library workers from
their professional roles, often due to little opportunity for promotion
or advancement, inadequate support, a lack of pay increases, repetitive
tasks, low autonomy, and a negative work culture. There will be a
discussion on actionable steps that individuals and managers can take to
create a more inclusive career development environment. This talk will
be based on the presenter's ALA articles "Don't Ignore Quiet Quitting" and "When Librarianship Becomes a Dead End Job."
- Understand the concept of creating a meaningful work life and its significance in professional well-being.
- Explore the various challenges and dissatisfaction that can contribute to the gradual disengagement of library workers from their roles including burnout, lack of professional growth opportunities, inadequate support, and evolving technological demands.

Attend: This talk is designed for both library staff and
managers who want to create an environment where people can learn, earn,
and feel a sense of belonging.
