Why does my business need a dress code policy?

A dress code policy outlines the guidelines of appropriate clothing for employees to wear in the workplace, including how they should present themselves. The Business Kitz Dress Code Policy Template offers an easy and comprehensive template that can be easily adjusted to fit your business’ dress code needs.

In workplaces where a uniform is not required, employers can deploy a dress code policy to assist employees with knowing what is considered appropriate forms of dressing while in the workplace. A dress code policy can reinforce positive and professional standards in a workplace.

This is particularly useful in work environments where there are health and safety regulations or when employees need to dress a certain way for events to meet clients.

For example, in a bakery, an employer might require an employee to wear closed-in shoes. Whereas in a law firm, employers might require employees to dress in business attire to follow the professional standard especially when meeting with clients, business partners or appearing in court before a judge.

A good reason for your business to have a dress code is to ensure that all staff are aware of what is expected of the way they present themselves at work and to provide general guidelines for each employee to follow.

A dress code policy can outline the attire of clothing for employees to wear, but it can also set out how an employee presents themselves in other avenues apart from clothing. For example, a dress code can outline whether employees are allowed facial piercings, visible tattoos, facial hair, unnatural hair colours or excessive jewellery for example.

The Business Kitz dress code policy covers all elements of dress codes from clothing that is required for health and safety regulations to non-clothing-related guidelines such as personal hygiene.

We recommend that you purchase and implement a dress code policy if you want your employees to dress in certain attire for certain occasions, or if you want general guidelines of how your employees should present themselves.
