We have been drifting away from formal office dress codes for years and according to a survey by Salary.com only 55% of workplaces actually have a dress code.
As we transition to the post-pandemic era and its new forms of flexible work, businesses may well focus more on functionality – and care even less about staff showing up in formal office wear whether it be online or in the office.
In this round table we discussed office/work dress and what exactly does that mean now? What is acceptable – and what isn’t?
What are the considerations regarding dress code? Does it matter?
