in Leaders & Managers,Workplace Communication

If employees wear inappropriate clothes to work, express your concern in a firm-but-diplomatic fashion. Try to have female supervisors talk to female staffers and male bosses talk to males. Focus on objective facts about the outfit, not sweeping judgments. (Say "Your shirt doesn't meet our written guidelines," not "Your shirt is too provocative.") Explain that you're concerned about setting a precedent with the rest of the staff.
