Since employees are really a company’s number one asset, it is a smart choice to educate them on what “proper business attire” really means. The staff is a reflection of the company, so what they wear and how they are groomed speaks volumes about that company. Perhaps you have an employee who looks as though she is ready to go clubbing on a Friday night. Or maybe one who looks as though he is heading out to the gym. Unfortunately, this is an all-too-common problem. Business attire has somehow gotten confused with weekend wear. Yikes! What can you do to help them put their best, most professional foot forward?
As a business owner or manager, addressing these issues yourself can lead to a very sticky situation. But with the help of a third party, the experience can be fun, educational, and productive for management and staff alike. Through various methods such as new dress guidelines, workshops on pertinent corporate image topics, or “lunch and learn” presentations, your staff can be a professional, positive reflection of your company without sacrificing their own sense of style.
