Dear Mr. Grey
The Company is well aware of the old fashioned dress code and it is the intent of the proposal to stick with the old way of business attire, but add new clothing because of the new and approved fashion standards.
It is the intent that work attire should complement an environment that reflects an efficient, orderly, and professionally operated organization. This policy is intended to define appropriate “business attire” during normal business operations and “casual business attire” on Fridays. This will allow employees to have a day to dress comfortably and add onto the old form of “business attire.”
The Company should recognize the growing popularity of casual business dress and the positive effects of this shift to boost employee morale, improve quality, encourage more open communication and increased productivity, therefore, creating a more comfortable work environment. Saying that, casual business attire will be permitted on Fridays. The Company reserves the right to continue, extend, revise or revoke this policy at its discretion.
Enforcement of this guideline should be a shared responsibility of Company management and supervisory personnel as well as staff members being active in up keeping the policy.
The key point to sustaining an appropriate causal business attire program is the use of common sense and good judgment, and applying a dress practice that the Company deems conducive to our business environment. As a company we should enforce the rule: if you question the appropriateness of the attire, it probably isn’t appropriate.
