More and more companies are moving on from formal uniforms and adopting a smart casual dress code, which has been seen to have many benefits to employees and the overall atmosphere of the workplace as the style prioritises both professionalism and comfort, which has become a priority throughout the corporate world in recent years.
A smart casual dress code balances formal and informal wear, which can positively impact the workplace by allowing employees freedom over what they wear while still having a professional appearance that clients value.
A company’s dress code can significantly impact employees; an overly formal dress code can reduce motivation to work and inhibit an employee’s creativity. Allowing employees to choose what to wear from a clothing range increases morale and job satisfaction due to physical and mental comfort. Additionally, less formal dress codes can be beneficial to employees with disabilities as it grants the opportunity to dress in a way that is convenient and comfortable for their health.
The definition of smart casual can differ depending on the company and industry, so it is advised that when changing from formal to smart casual, guidelines are set to avoid confusion and ensure that no one is dressing inappropriately.
While switching to smart casual wear can be incredibly beneficial, as an employer, you should continue a semi-coordinated appearance for client meetings or maintain a cohesive team image. Enduro’s uniform collection contains items that suit a smart casual dress code while staying cohesive to your company.
Offering both gendered and unisex clothing, the Enduro uniform collection is high-quality and professional, including different fits of trousers, polos with both long and short sleeves and multiple jackets. This collection gives employees a uniformed look while allowing them to express themselves, improving employee engagement.
Employers buying Enduro uniforms can have great benefits to employees as it eases financial burdens. Buying business formal clothing individually, such as suits and dresses, can be incredibly expensive, especially when prioritising quality and durability. This financial responsibility can create a sense of inequality in the workplace, which has no benefit to productivity or the working atmosphere.
Purchasing Enduro’s uniform as an employer alleviates financial pressures on employees and provides everyone with the same high-quality clothes, allowing for the workplace to be an equal and productive place.
