Does Teamwork Really Make the Dream Work?

By Haley Fields, Account Manager

How many times have you heard the phrase, “Teamwork makes the dream work”? I’ve heard it in staff meetings, client meetings, goal-setting sessions, and interviews. But does teamwork really make or break your work?  The answer is a huge, loud YES!

ACC is an agency that has built its foundation on team work and the notion that the team gets out what the team puts in. We take teamwork so seriously that we really only have one rule in our office: don’t e-mail your co-workers! That may seem crazy and yes, we do have to e-mail each other in order to get work done, but not until we’ve had a face to face conversation about the project. Only then do we follow up with an e-mail, document, or project specs.

A few of my favorite team-focused values here at ACC are:

  • We strive to contribute our most authentic selves by bringing positive and fresh energy to our office space.
  • We take pride in our individual accomplishments and feel comfortable asking for help.
  • We are self-motivated and push ourselves to grow. We are looking to push ourselves and learn new professional boundaries.

We work in an open office: no offices, no closed doors, OPEN! This creates a space where we can be honest as well as take advantage of the opportunity to truly work as a team. We bounce ideas off of each other, talk through client projects and gain perspectives we might have missed out on if we all had our own offices. Our teamwork approach takes us right into our clients’ doors, too! We act as an extension of their teams, seamlessly integrating ourselves in order to provide the best-quality work. I am so proud to be a part of this team. I truly believe we have created the ultimate #dreamteam!
