UK plc discovering casual dress can improve productivity

Businesses’
attitudes to dress are changing, with more realising that more casual attire
can lead to better productivity.

The
number of firms allowing their staff to wear casual clothes to work has
increased, a survey has revealed.

Two-thirds
of the 500 employers questioned were happy for their employees to dress down
for at least one day a week – up from a half two years ago.

And
now a third of those questioned said they had relaxed their dress code to allow
workers to dress casually all the time.

Peter
Done, managing director of employment law firm Peninsula, which conducted the
survey, said wearing casual clothes provided motivation without harming
business.

The
employers who were the most relaxed about clothing were in technology and
computing firms.
