Redefining your employee dress code!
As businesses continue to transition back to the traditional office-based, swapping yoga pants for smart trousers may be a bit of a shock to the system as the business dress code was perhaps the first thing to have fallen by the wayside because of remote working.
A report from footwear brand Kurt Geiger revealed that average Brit now owns the equivalent of £474 in trainers with the pandemic prompting individuals to adopt a more casual wardrobe.
One of the most immediate post-pandemic challenges that businesses are bound to find themselves facing is the transition back to office-based working. Many employees are keen to return to in office interactions and the atmosphere of this environment, many are of course reluctant, having become accustomed to the convenience and flexibility afforded by remote working.
It is therefore expected that employees are prepared to change jobs to be able to work remotely or on a hybrid basis.
Employers may be tempted to try and replicate elements of the remote working experience to create a less abrupt transition and, in the longer-term, retain more staff.
A reassessment of dress code policy may be a quick, easy, and low-cost initiative ensuring a smoother and less stressful transition back to the office.
