Are your employees missing the mark on your company’s business casual dress code? Or, as an employee, are you uncertain about what you business casual truly means? If so, you are not alone. Studies show that four in ten employees (41 percent) are unsure about whether what they are considering wearing is office appropriate.
The two biggest complaints companies make about employees following their dress code are:
- Employees dress too casually (47 percent).
- Employees show too much skin (32 percent).
The easiest way to solve the problem is to choose custom embroidered business apparel. Provide your employees a set of corporate casual clothing options they can wear that display your logo and that follow your guidelines. In addition to custom embroidered polo shirts, appropriate custom business apparel options include custom embroidered sweaters and shrugs, custom embroidered dress shirts, and custom embroidered jackets.
Pair these available custom business apparel options with simple-to-follow dress guidelines. Here is an example that most companies find appropriate. Feel free to link this blog to your website to help employees understand your dress code:
