Business casual is becoming much more casual, according to a new survey that found half of senior managers say employees dress less formally than they did five years ago.
Workers don’t seem to mind: Twenty-seven percent said they’d prefer a casual dress code policy or no rules at all. Nearly a third (31 percent) favor a business casual dress code policy.
Companies with relaxed rules still have some limits: Employees often aren’t allowed to wear overly casual clothing — the most common dress code policy violation, according to 47 percent of senior managers, followed by work clothes that show too much skin.
