The Chicago Tribune names Niles-Maine District Library a winner of the Chicago Top Workplaces 2019 Award

Niles-Maine District Library has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor for the first

time by The Chicago Tribune. The Library is one of two libraries recognized on the list of 150

companies and organizations in the Chicago region.

"One of the staff members nominated us for the award, and I'm thrilled that the staff

responded so positively," said Executive Director, Susan Dove Lempke. "We may not have high

salaries like some of the other winners, but the Library is a great environment and we feel valued

by our community for the work that we share."

Chicago Top Workplaces winners are recognized solely on anonymous surveys about the

workplace completed by their employees. Seventy-five of the one hundred and four library staff

members completed the survey. The survey was administered by research firm Energage, a

leading provider of technology-based employee engagement. The survey measures several

aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

"The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration," said

Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. "Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher

referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just

goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results."

The Niles-Maine District Library is located at 6960 W. Oakton St, the northeast corner of

the Oakton and Waukegan intersection. Library hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9

p.m., Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.
