In our fast-paced libraries, workplace burnout is all too common. Add to that the stressors of the coronavirus pandemic and it can feel like almost like an inevitability. While we have no magic bullet to prevent or immediately banish burnout, it can be effectively minimized and prevented via recognition, skilled communication, job crafting, and building alignment between each employee’s work and values. Library administrators as well as those not in supervisory roles can have meaningful results using this unique approach.
