In the age of a multi-generational workforce, Dress Code Policies can stir up both controversy and confusion among employees. Some companies, like General Motors, created a Policy that simply states, “Dress Appropriately,” while other companies have stuck to the “Dress to Impress” mentality, requiring professional attire across the board.

While dress code requirements are not always one-size-fits-all, deciding what works best and clarifying expectations on the front end helps to avoid uncomfortable conversations and employee confusion down the road, which is a positive for managers and employees alike.
