Summer dress codes

Ah, yes, summer is back. For many HR professionals that means dress code conversations. Depending on the workplace, this may include chats about flip flops, short shorts, baseball hats, tank tops, and I’m sure other clothing items. Sometimes, clothing impacts our business in a real, tangible way. Maybe for those forward facing with customers. Maybe for those who need to consider health and safety. But, for many others, we’re bringing our own standards of dress to the workplace. Sometimes, the work is what matters. Imagine what might be possible if we weren’t hung up on flip flops and short shorts. Imagine if we were hung up on outcomes, results and metrics. Just saying.
