 St. Louis Post-Dispatch Names IHLS a Winner of the Greater St. Louis Top Workplaces 2022 Award

Edwardsville, Ill. - June 25, 2022 - Illinois Heartland Library System has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by The St. Louis Post-Dispatch Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

"Companies need to authentically represent their brand to job-seekers," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "The employee experience needs to be on the mission-critical list. Leaders who embrace a people-first culture will benefit greatly. By giving employees a voice and showcasing your authentic culture through employer branding, organizations can attract those job seekers who complement their culture. Culture drives performance."

We at IHLS are so grateful for our fabulous staff and their dedication to supporting Illinois libraries. From our delivery hubs to our offices, our employees’ enthusiasm and dedication enable IHLS to provide the best service possible. Thanks to them, we continue to fulfill our vision of empowering libraries to embrace innovation and collaboration.
