The Association of Special Libraries of the Philippines (ASLP), Inc. will conduct a seminar/workshop on "Effective Library Management and Workplace Productivity through Stress Management, Wellness and Good Nutrition" from April 18-20, 2012 at Skylight Hotel, Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
Stress in the workplace frequently hits us with two-way pressures that come from a combination of both internal and external stressors. Stress results in decreased job satisfaction, reduced production, and increased conflicts, which all lead to â€" you guessed it â€" more stress! When you ignore stress signals, you are more liable to become ill or fatigued and to experience injury. As librarians, there are several steps you can take to preserve your health by reducing workplace stress.
This seminar/workshop aims to:
* increase our awareness of personal stressors and idiosyncratic stress reactions;
* live a more relax life style and prevent stress-related illness;
* have a healthy lifestyle through good nutrition, health and wellness; and
* control the stressors in our life through the development of a personal stress-management plan to effectively manage our workplace.
Highly regarded resource persons in the field are invited to share their expertise and knowledge on the three (3) major areas of concern to effectively manage our library and increase productivity in the workplace â€" stress management, wellness and good nutrition.
Librarians, library administrators, archivists, record officers, support staff, teachers and students of Library & Information Science, consultants and other information professionals are invited to attend the said seminar/workshop.
