“If a job’s done well, who cares if it’s achieved in flip-flops?”
It seems most people think that suits are too formal for the office and would prefer to wear jeans. That’s according to a survey carried out by workplace firm Regus.
3,000 adults took part in the survey, with two out of three of those questioned saying they thought it was fine to wear jeans, and three quarters describing a suit and tie as too formal.
Chief executive Richard Morris said: “Everything about the world of work is changing, from where we work to the hours we spend working to what we wear.
“This more relaxed attitude to work wear is a reflection of the fact that the office environment is now a lot less formal in many cases – lifestyle and work are integrating.
“Business leaders are learning fast about measuring on results rather than attendance and presentation. If a job’s done well, who cares if it’s achieved in flip-flops?”
But don’t whip out the tracksuit just yet! Tracksuits were the least popular item of clothing according to the survey. Best keep the workout gear for the gym only.
