With the number of vaccinated Americans passing 65%, we have all been enjoying the benefits as the world around us begins to reopen. One benefit that Francis Acunzo, CEO of Acara Partners, is looking forward to is welcoming his staff back to the office through what he has dubbed “The Library Model.”
“It has been hard, this past year, to not see our employees in the office,” says Acunzo. “We are a very tight-knit group and there’s a very apparent feeling of camaraderie between us all. While our employees have been amazing at adapting to working virtually, I’m so excited to begin seeing them around the office.”
As a leader in the medspa industry, Acunzo has been in contact with fellow CEOs and industry leaders, as well as his own leadership team, to decide when the best possible time was to welcome the employees of Acara Partners back into the office and just how exactly to do it. Ultimately, Acunzo decided on adopting the “Library Model” of working, starting after the July 4 holiday. This hybrid style of working encourages the employees of Acara Partners to come into the office when they have small group meetings or just looking for a quiet place to work. When they are not in the office, employees will continue to work and communicate through Google Meet, Slack and traditional email.
In addition to the many benefits that the library model provides for the employee, Acunzo is also very excited for the benefits it provides as the company itself faces new growth in the upcoming months.
“In the next four to six months we will be adding new employees to Acara Partners,” says Acunzo. “This ‘Library Model’ allows us to easily adjust to the growth without outgrowing the office space that has come to feel like home. This opportunity to expand Acara Partners without even having to consider a real estate change is fantastic. We want to remain in this space as long as we can.”
Acara Partners is excited to welcome their employees back into the office, and welcome their clients to the office, after the July 4 holiday. Stay tuned for more updates on how Acara Partners begins the process back to a fully operational office by the start of 2022.
