Many companies do not stipulate a dress code or have a corporate clothing policy for their employees, which can lead to many uncomfortable situations for both the employee and employer. A dress code or corporate clothing policy is designed to address safety, gender, race and even religion.
A corporate clothing policy is a valuable tool that provides guidelines to employees to help them dress appropriately in the workplace. This policy should always be respectful and positively offer an explanation for why it is needed.
Reasons for a Corporate Clothing Policy
Typically, a corporate uniform policy will first outline what is expected and why such a policy is required. Reasons may include;
To promote and reflect the company’s image.
To protect the employee from harassment or discrimination.
To prevent incidents where other employees rights and dignity are infringed.
To ensure the safety of technical and operational employees in the course of their duties.
Corporate Clothing Benefits for Men and Women
No corporate clothing policy will cover all contingencies, and there are many surprising benefits of a corporate uniform to both employer and employees.
