Brebners Dress-Down Fridays
The undersigned believe that Brebners smart dress code is unnecessary, particularly when not in a client-facing situation, and the resulting lack of comfort in the work place may in fact reduce productivity. We propose that for at least one day a week (i.e. Friday), Brebners adopt on a trial basis, the same casual dress code enjoyed by the other floors of 130 Shaftesbury Avenue.
Many companies who offer casual dress benefits to their employees “report that wearing casual clothing can boost morale, improve quality, encourage more open communication, and increase productivity by creating a more comfortable work environment” - McPherson, W. (1997). “Dressing down” in the business communication curriculum. Business Communication Quarterly, 60(1), 134-146.
