A little bit more about this initiative –
At OhioNet, we believe that wellbeing is of paramount importance. To support you on your journey to a healthier and happier work life, we are thrilled to introduce the Ohio Library Worker Wellbeing Survey in partnership with The Wellbeing Lab. We invite you to contribute to our 5-minute statewide survey of library workers from libraries and information centers of all types. The survey is open now through November 3, 2023.
By participating, you’ll gain access to a personalized well-being report and a tailored well-being plan to help you thrive in both your personal and professional life. In addition, at the conclusion of the survey period, OhioNet will receive a report on the workplace wellbeing of Ohio library workers across the state. We will use this report to initiate dialogue about what steps we can take in the library community to contribute to greater wellbeing for all who work in Ohio’s libraries.
Rest assured, your survey responses are strictly confidential. Only The Wellbeing Lab will have access to the anonymous data, which will give us invaluable insights into the well-being of our library community and how we can better serve you.
Drawing on Professor Martin Seligman’s PERMAH wellbeing framework, this five-minute survey tool was designed to help people care for their wellbeing, even when they are struggling.
