Why is this Important?

Having close relationships at work has been found to positively affect employee retention, safety, work quality and engagement. Research indicates that people feel better emotionally when they do kind things for and with other people. Building community within the university is an important part of building well-being for faculty, staff and the university.


Books@Work brings professor-led literature seminars to workplaces and community settings to build confidence, critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. Over the course of 12 weeks, the group will discuss three different books. Through shared narratives, Books@Work encourages and nurtures work cultures rooted in trust, open dialogue and strong social connection – all critical elements of wellbeing.
