Join our panellists for a discussion on formal office wear post-pandemic, where we aim to define the term 'business attire' and consider whether businesses will opt for a policy based on functionality instead. Register your place today!

Event Details

We've been drifting away from formal office dress codes for years. According to a survey by Salary.com, only 55% of workplaces have a dress code. It’s clear that the pandemic has accelerated a long-standing discussion around whether business attire is still relevant.

During the past 18 months, most of us have worn what’s comfortable – and the overall consensus is that we’ve been pretty productive, regardless.

As we transition to the post-pandemic era and its new forms of flexible work, businesses may well focus more on functionality – and care even less about staff showing up in formal office wear whether it be online or in the office.

In this round table we shall be discussing office / work dress. What exactly does that mean? What is acceptable – and what isn’t? What are the considerations regarding dress code? Does it matter?
