Complete with illuminating case studies and worksheets that guide readers to develop a personal framework for individual learning, this toolkit is an easy-to-use handbook of the basic HR functions of a public library.

Human resources is an area of leadership that requires its own specialized knowledge, but many library managers and directors assume their roles without any background knowledge of HR or adequate training. This comprehensive toolkit, which has been vetted by HR professionals as well as an attorney who specializes in employment law, is here to fill those gaps. Taking you through the lifecycle of an employee, and also providing a framework to develop skills and confidence, in this book you will learn: - ways to incorporate an EDI lens into your employee processes, starting with accurately crafted job descriptions that are posted on diverse job boards;
- tips for hiring and onboarding new staff;
- advice on individual employee development and retention, from the importance of continuing education to methods for increasing staff engagement and strengthening morale;
- considerations for treating all employees equitably to maintain a welcoming and inclusive space for staff from marginalized populations;
- an overview of the essential HR laws that come into play, helping you navigate difficult situations like discipline and termination;
- first-hand accounts of HR successes and challenges; and
- how to create a personalized structure around your HR learning and put it into practice, using a variety of worksheets, questions for reflection, templates, and tools provided in the book.
