How can I improve professionalism in land of tank tops, flip-flops? — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Question: “Our administrative employees – fiscal, HR, data, support – are grouped
together in a separate unit and we have contact with the public as well
as potential employees. My question: I feel I’m the only person in an
administrative role who projects any level of professionalism. Some
people wear skin-tight denim capris, tank tops and flip-flops. Others
apparently wear whatever happened to be lying on the chair beside their
bed. How do you recommend – besides being an example (which hasn’t
worked thus far) – improving the professional image of this unit?
(FYI, we don’t have a dress code.)” – Lisa
