Dressing Appropriately at Work
Are your employees’ present styles in conflict with the image of your company?
In today’s competitive business world, an employee’s personal image reflects the professionalism of the company. Whether you have new employees or employees moving up the company ladder, looking stylish yet professional is essential to projecting a creative and accountable image for your company.
We will offer your employees our expertise on how to appropriately incorporate their personal style into their business wardrobe. By helping employees understand their body types and coloring we will enable them to select the right clothing, hairstyles, and makeup, while remaining appropriate for their particular work environment. We will offer short and long-term tips for looking their best, regardless of age, shape, lifestyle or bank account.
Topics covered are:
- Defining your company’s image
- Understanding the importance of first impressions and attitude: “What message does your present attire send?”
- Dress for the position you want, not the one you have
- How to incorporate your individual style into appropriate work attire
- Analyzing your business wardrobe needs
- How to dress for business casual - sorting the interpretations
- Identifying and minimizing your figure flaws
- Undergarment and accessory choices
- Knowing where and how to shop
- Analyzing hairstyles, color and makeup
After these in-depth discussions with your employees concerning appropriate business casual in spite of a lack of detailed dress code policy, your company will experience a decrease in overly casual attitude and demeanor. This increase in professionalism will decrease your company’s incidents of sexual harassment, missed business opportunities, and general noncompliance with company standards. You will also notice greater civility in the workplace and a lower absentee rate.
Available for hire for groups of 4 to 30 people. Call 212-879-5790.
