Skills and workforce development
Workforce sustainability and leadership 2008
Client: State Library of Victoria
This was a multi-stage project involving an initial scoping stage that identified the key issues surrounding recruitment and retention of staff, and the development of leadership positions. The second stage of this project involved the conduct of focus groups and two online surveys (one of employees and one of managers) to analyse the current skills, training and staffing of Victorian public libraries. The final stage of the project developed strategic approaches and recommendations for addressing the issues surrounding the ongoing sustainability of the Victorian public library workforce over the next 15 years.
