there is an age -old saying" man is judged by the boots he wear". but is it only the boots? well if you ask the corporate world, then boots are not enough. the employee has to be "presentable" and should dress "right".the dressing protocol is not limited to any single industry but has spread its wings all over. different sectors have different set of rules for their employees to dress. the reasons given for the same may be ranging from culture, atmosphere to ethics. so what is the right dressing code?
it is true that the dressing style vary according to the industry to reflect the culture and work ethics of the workplace. since the atmosphere within certain business communities, for e.g. an ad agency tends to be informal, the attire of the employees reflects this outlook. on the other hand, protocol of corporate dressing in sectors such as hospitality, it, banking etc, is more conservative as it reflects directly on employee professionalism.
mind it that the attire of an employee of a particular industry speaks volume about the company's work ethic, image and culture. it adds an impression of professionalism, intelligence and commitment that enhances the overall credibility of the company. similarly, non -adherence to a dress code can send out a message of discredit and incompetence.
but now, many organizations have now realized the fact that younger employee of today is more fashion conscious and experiment a lot with style even with his formal wears. the companies are also waking up to this fact and are flooding the market with formal yet fashionable attire.
remember that dressing perfectly to work everyday is important for the complete look and feel for the employees and the organization. so, next time you buy that business shirt, make sure that it fits your office culture and gives you a dressed to kill outlook.
